CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.
The 1951 classic is based on a diary, entitled
Anna and the King
, which tells the story of young Westerner Anna Leonowens who is brought to the court of the king of Siam to become the tutor for his children. The musical, which was made into a film starring Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner in 1956, features several classic songs including "Shall We Dance", "Getting to Know You", "Hello Young Lovers" and "I Whistle a Happy Tune". This production of
The King and I
started life in Australia in 1991. It opened on Broadway in 1996, starring Donna Murphy and Diamond-Phillips and scooping Tony Awards that year for Best Revival and Best Actress. The show ran for two years on Broadway and later featured country-music-loving star Marie Osmond as Anna.
