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. web sitePerformers Josie Lawrence (Anna Leonowens), Claire Moore (Anna - Wed/Sat Mats), Keo Woolford (The King), Sean Ghazi (Lun Tha), Claire Moone (Anna Leonowens - Wed Mats), Aura Deva (Tuptim), Ho Yi (Kralahome), Taewon Yi Kim (Lady Thiang), Robin Kermode (Sir Edward Ramsay), Richard Avery (Captain Orton), Irene Alano, Khan Bonfils, Criselda Collis, Karen Kashiki, Na Ye Kim, David Lee, Mei-Chun Lin, Benjamin Loh, Ming Low, Melanie May Po, Kaori Murakami, Azumi Ono, Oliver Pang, Anton Perez, Therese Rademark, Stephanie Reese, Gina Respall, Samart Santhaveesnik, Ayako Shimizu, Gina Tse, Unku.
