BWW Reviews: Welk Escondido Does a Fine KING AND I
by Don Grigware - Jan 27, 2015

A friend referred to The King and I as a war horse, an old chestnut, for it has surely surpassed time as an enduring musical classic, but upon seeing it again, one realizes just how potent, vibrant and topical a piece it truly is.
