The King and I archiveThe 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. <a href="">web site</a>
