Photo Flash: Tinkerbelle the Dog Visits Hoon Lee and More at THE KING AND I

Current King of Siam Hoon Lee and other cast members of The King and I on Broadway got a special backstage visit from social media star Tinkerbelle the Dog. Check out the adorable photos below!

Lincoln Center Theater's Tony Award-winning production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's THE KING AND I, directed by Bartlett Sher, is currently playing the Vivian Beaumont Theater (150 West 65 Street) on Broadway. THE KING AND I is the winner of four 2015 Tony Awards -- Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actress in a Musical (Kelli O'Hara), Best Featured Actress in a Musical (Ruthie Ann Miles), and Best Costume Design of a Musical (Catherine Zuber).

Hoon Lee recently joined Tony winner Kelli O'Hara and the company in the role of 'The King', which was originated for the Broadway production by Tony Award nominee Ken Watanabe. THE KING AND I also features Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles (as Lady Thiang), Ashley Park (as Tuptim), Conrad Ricamora (as Lun Tha), Edward Baker-Duly (as Sir Edward Ramsey), Jon Viktor Corpuz (as Prince Chulalongkorn), Murphy Guyer (as Captain Orton), Jake Lucas (as Louis), Paul Nakauchi (as Kralahome), and Marc Oka (as Phra Alack), and more.

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein's finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score which features such beloved classics as "Getting To Know You," "Hello Young Lovers," "Shall We Dance," "I Have Dreamed" 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 imperious King brings to Siam to tutor his many wives and children.
