PHOTO: Something Wonderful! Llana, Watanabe, Lee, and Kim Join Together at THE KING AND I


Jose Llana, who took over as The King for Ken Watanabe last summer in the Tony Award winning production of The King and I, took to Instagram to commemorate a special moment - all four kings (Ken Watanabe, Hoon Lee, Daniel Dae Kim, and himself) together!

Llana will once again resume the role of The King, from Tuesday, April 19th through May 3rd, when Daniel Dae Kim will take over.

Today, April 17th, The King and I celebrates its first anniversary on Broadway, and though the performance marks a farewell to its two original stars, O'Hara and Tony nominee Ken Watanabe, a new Anna Leonowens and King of Siam will carry the musical into its second year.

On Tuesday, May 3, Daniel Dae Kim, star of the long-running television series "Lost" and "Hawaii Five-0," will make his Broadway debut as the King of Siam starring alongside 3-time Tony Award nominee Marin Mazzie as Anna. Prior to that, beginning Tuesday, April 19 through Sunday, May 1, Analisa Leaming will play the role of Anna opposite Jose Llana, who starred as the King last summer.

Directed by Bartlett Sher, the revival was the winner of four 2015 Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Musical.
