This summer, don’t miss out on a chance to catch the classic musical The King and I in Washington. The play will be staged at DC’s gorgeous Kennedy Center venue, one of the city’s most beautiful spots to watch a show. The story follows British schoolteacher Anna Leonowens, who travels to Siam to tutor the king’s children. Along the way, she falls into a romance with the king and befriends the people of the country. This show, which features the Rogers and Hammerstein score with numbers like “Shall We Dance” is bound to be a hit with the kids. Given that this staging of The King and I won four Tony Awards during its time in Broadway, you can be certain that this adaptation is a fascinating rendition of the musical.
