The King and I

Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I is a timeless love story that offers insight and encouragement for relationships torn apart by cultural differences. Set in the early 1860s, this beautifully arranged musical tells the story of newly widowed Anna Leonowens and her son, Louis, as they set sail from their native England for Bangkok, Siam (now Thailand). After accepting an offer as a schoolteacher for the sons of the King of Siam, Anna, still grieving, learns much about the culture and deeply ingrained traditions of the far East . The King is determined to usher Siam into the modern world, and he thinks Western education can be a part of that. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by rulers of the West, and he takes Anna on as an adviser, asking her to help change his image if not his actual practice. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King teach each other about understanding, respect, and love that can transcend the greatest of differences. Beneath the fraught, fiercely opinionated, conflict-ridden surface of Anna and the King's relationship lies one of the most unique love stories in the musical theater canon.
