BWW Review: THE KING AND I Does Justice to a Classic at Milwaukee's Marcus Center

Happily for the national tour of Rogers and Hammerstein's 'The King and I,'  the cast holds their own and the story stays, for the most part, as compelling as ever.

BWW Review: In the National Touring Revival of THE KING AND I, Women Reign Supreme

There is something wonderful about seeing a classic musical. Perhaps it is the familiarity of the story or the well-known songs that just feels like home. And in terms of that, the national tour of Rodgers and Hammerstein's THE KING AND I, based on the Tony Award-winning 2015 Lincoln Center revival, does not disappoint. In this production, Mongkut may be the King of Siam, but the women reign supreme. That may be because Director Shelly Butler based her vision for this new production on Bartlett Sher's original direction for the Lincoln Center production. Sher was hailed for taking the emphasis off any potential love story between Anna and the King, as has been told before, and instead told the story through the lens of three very strong female characters, namely Lady Thiang, Tuptim, and of course, Anna.
