This April, two American classics come to Broadway.
Five-time Tony nominee Kelli O’Hara and Academy Award nominee Ken Watanabe star in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s THE KING AND I at Lincoln Center directed by Tony winner Bartlett Sher. Featuring a cast of more than 50, choreography based on the original by Jerome Robbins, and a score of treasured songs including “Getting to Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune” and “Shall We Dance?” in their glorious, original orchestrations, Lincoln Center Theater’s new staging of The King and I invites you to get to know this inspiring and enchanting musical classic.
Opening April 16.
AN AMERICAN IN PARIS is the romantic story of a young American soldier, a beautiful French girl and an indomitable European city, each yearning for a new beginning in the aftermath of war. Directed by ballet dancer and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and based on the iconic 1951 MGM musical, which was itself inspired by a 1928 Gershwin orchestral piece, this beautiful play and the music is not to be missed.
