PRODUCTION OF “THE KING AND I”
NOW ON STAGE AT THE BROWARD CENTER
Set in the 1860's Bangkok, the Musical tells the story of newly widowed Anna an adventurous Englishwoman and her son, Louis, set sail from their native England for Bangkok, Siam (now Thailand) who was hired to serve as governess and tutor to King Mongkut’s many children.
Although Anna has had many quarrels with the dictator, considered to be a barbarian by rulers of the West. The King is determined to usher Siam into the modern world, and believes a Western education can be a part of that. Anna is horrified at first by the many traditions he holds dear and struggles to find common ground.
Anna and the King teach each other about under-standing, respect, and love that can transcend the greatest differences. The two eventually fall in love, and her influence on the King helps to democratize the country. This unconventional and tempestuous relationship continues to develop between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, the British schoolteacher.
