Jee Hyun Lim is an American opera singer best known for her portrayl of Cio-Cio San at the New York City Opera and also at Albert Hall in 2005 I think.
Yanle Zhong was in the original ensemble of Avenue Q, as well as playing Tuptim in the 2005 tour of King and I.
Ethan Le Phong is best known for Naked Boys Singing.

Looks like a great cast :) Really excited now!

I saw Yanle Zhong as Christmas Eve. She was very good. I'm also terribly excited for the opportunity to FINALLY see Michael Simkins in action, being a bit of a fan of his book, What's My Motivation?, and his columns for West End programmes (at least some of which I believe are original, rather than sucked out of the book). re: The King and his cast!
