  • The King and I


    The King and I is the story of Anna, a British woman who becomes governess to the children of the king of Siam (now Thailand). Based on a true story, this musical explores the relationship between the independent Anna and the headstrong king, who wants Anna to help him change his image without compromising his culture. The two gradually learn to respect and even love each other, and the play explores the themes of interracial love and East versus West.
