The King and I is a rare jewel

The King will see you now, or at least he will see you until July 9th, when this sumptuous production of The King and I moves its lengthy tour along to the rest of America. This touring production may have been performed at the Oriental Theater in Chicago, but the Lincoln Center handprint is evident. Thankfully, no bit of this production is watered down or tinkered with. Even 16 stops into their 19-stop tour, this cast shines. Though you may have missed the 2015 Best Revival Tony Award-winning show during its Lincoln Center run, middle America can now be transported to Siam (modern-day Thailand) and experience the magic anew. Director of the Broadway production, Tony Award winner Bartlett Sher, has a visible hand in this dazzling production. Each moment in the script has been brought to the light and shined anew, making this show shimmer like a jewel under fine light.
