G Töngi goes to the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood to get an exciting closer look at the production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s The King and I, now playing through January 21, 2017.
G is on the red carpet with the stars and talks to the Filipino Americans in the cast, including Joan Almedilla (Lady Thiang) PLUS a backstage tour exclusive with Jose Llana who plays the King of Siam.
One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score which features such beloved classics as, “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful. ”Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
