Musical: The King and I

21 Jun-29 Sep | London Palladium |The King and I

Hailed as Japan’s answer to Doctor Who, multi-award-winning actor Takao Osawa is joining the cast of The King and I. Along with Kelli O’Hara, Ken Watanabe and Ruthie Ann Miles, Osawa helps tell the tumultuous love story of British schoolteacher Anna and the King of Siam.

The Rodgers and Hammerstein musical has been reinvented for the London Palladium after its 16-month run in New York’s Lincoln Center Theater.

Take a trip down memory lane and listen out for those toe-tapping scores of I Whistle a Happy Tune, Shall We Dance? and Getting to Know You.
