One of Rodgers & Hammerstein's finest works, The King and I   boasts a score which features such beloved classics as "Getting To Know You," "Hello Young Lovers" and "Shall We Dance." Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the relationship that develops between the King of Siam and a British schoolteacher, Anna Leonowens. This critically acclaimed revival, starring Kelli O'Hara and Ken Watanabe, received an impressive nine Tony Award nominations.
