STAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/7/16- THE KING AND ISTAGE TUBE: On This Day for 1/7/16- THE KING AND I
by Stage Tube - Jan 7, 2016

Today in 1985, the second Broadway revival of The King and I opened at the Broadway THeatre, where it ran for 191 performances. The King and I is the fifth musical by the team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The work is based on the 1944 novel Anna and the King of Siam by Margaret Landon and derives from the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, who became governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the early 1860s. The story deals with the experiences of the British schoolteacher, who is hired as part of the King's drive to modernize his country. The relationship between the King and Anna is marked by conflict through much of the play, as well as by a love that neither is able to express. The musical premiered on March 29, 1951 at Broadway's St. James Theatre. (more...)

BWW Interview: Tony-winner Donna Murphy Returns to Familiar Era in PBS's MERCY STREETBWW Interview: Tony-winner Donna Murphy Returns to Familiar Era in PBS's MERCY STREET
by Matt Tamanini - Jan 17, 2016

The 1860s are a familiar period for Donna Murphy. In addition to winning Tonys for playing Fosca in the original Broadway production of PASSION and Anna in the 1996 revival of The King and I, the actress played Mary Todd Lincoln in the television movie, THE DAY LINCOLN WAS SHOT. All three projects were set between 1862 and 1867. And, while she jokes that the 1998 film was the last time that she had worn a corset, when she read the pilot episode of PBS's Civil War medical drama MERCY STREET, premiering tonight at 10:00pm ET, she knew that she wanted to be involved.
