State Theatre New Jersey presents The King and I

Published Friday, November 30, 2018

State Theatre New Jersey presents the Tony Award®-winning show, Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I for three performances from December 14th-15th.

Two worlds collide in this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, based on the 2015 Tony Award®-winning Lincoln Center Theater production. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, The King and I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance,” and “Something Wonderful.”

Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. The King and I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).

Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I creative team includes Bartlett Sher, Resident Director; Catherine Zuber, Costume Designer; and Michael Yeargan, Scenic Designer.

The cast includes Angela Baumgardner as Anna Leonowens and Pedro Ka'awaloa as the King of Siam, with DeAnna Choi as Lady Thiang, Bern Tan as Kralahome, Paulina Yeung as Tuptim, Dongwoo Kang as Lun Tha, Timothy Matthew Flores as Prince Chulalongkorn, Hayden Bercy as Louis Leonowens, and Stanton Morales as Captain Orton/Sir Edward Ramsey.
