Recorded live this year at London’s Palladium, the 2015 Tony Award-winning Lincoln Center Theater revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s iconic musical bursts afresh on the big screen. Reprising her Tony-winning performance, Kelli O’Hara stars as Anna, alongside Tony-nominee Ken Watanabe as the King. Set in 1860s Bangkok, the musical recounts the unconventional and tempestuous relationship between the King of Siam and Anna, a British schoolteacher he imports to teach his many wives and children. Also starring Tony winner Ruthie Ann Miles as Lady Thiang and featuring a company of more than 50 world-class performers, this glorious production boasts one of the finest scores ever written, including “Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Getting to Know You” and “Shall We Dance.” Director: Bartlett Sher. (UK 2018) Anticipated running time 180 min.
