I've only seen the movie, and I know the stage show is different. So, for someone who has seen the show or read the script, can someone tell me how much the male characters in the show actually have to do in terms of amount of lines and stage time?

King
Kralahome
Lun Tha
Louis
Chululongkorn
Phra Alack
Capt. Orton
The Interpreter
Sir Edward Ramsey

Thanks in advance.

Phra Alack and The interpreter are tiny roles andcan actualy becombined. Capt. Orton is only in the first scene. Ramsey has 2 scenes in Act 2.

The first five roles listed are all large and similar to the film. One of Lun Tha's songs was cut in the movie. Also, Louis and Prince Chulalongkorn have a reprise of "A Puzzlement" which was not in the movie.

The Interpereter is in the first scene, when the Kralahome cones to meet Anna on the ship.

Maybe in some production you saw, or were in. However, there is no "processional" in the script, and Capt. Orton does not appear after the first scene.
