"The King and I " has one  of, if not the best score/numbers of

What Broadway Play Do You Regret Not Seeing?  Jun 13 2020, 02:09:12 AM

 As a teenager in NY, whose mom did let him go see Musicals on his own, and that was when the area was really sketchy, the original Pippin with Ben Vereen and Jill Clayburgh, and Mack and Mabel with Bernadette Peters.
