BWW TV: Jose Llana of THE KING & I National Tour
Coming to the Durham Performing Arts Center from June 6th-11th is the national tour of Lincoln Center Theater's award-winning production of The King & I. I recently had the chance of 'getting to know' the King of Siam himself, Jose Llana.
He returns to the role after two starring engagements in the Tony-winning Lincoln Center Theater revival. His Broadway credits include: The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee (Drama Desk Award), Wonderland, Flower Drum Song, Rent, Street Corner Symphony and the 1996 Revival of The King and I (Lun Tha). Off-Broadway: Twelfth Night, Here Lies Love (Lortel nom.), Falling For Eve, On the Town and Saturn Returns. Regional: Poster Boy, Oliver!, Martin Guerre, Ballad of Little Jo (Jefferson nom.) and Candide (Barrymore nom.). TV/Film: Sex and the City and Hitch. Albums: VIVA Philippines label and Altitude based on his concert for Lincoln Center's American Songbook series.
