After a recent performance at Joe's Pub in New York City, last year's queer holiday hit We Three Lizas is back with a revamped book and expanded score. Box maker Conrad Ticklebottom's life has hit a stumbling block. At one time, his purple box sparked an entire movement in art and design, but now he's been forgotten and teetering on ruin. Just in the nick of time, the holidays bring three magical figures to his door -- a trio of Liza Minnellis -- to escort him on a fabulous journey through what-was, what-could-be and what-the-f*?!, redeeming his lost promise and reinventing a brand-new Conrad Ticklebottom.

I took my daughter and husband to see the play and we all agreed it was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon/evening. The children were adorable, the singing was spectacular (especially Anna and Tiptim), the King was charming and amusing and the space is great as there is not a bad seat in the house. The large acting crew certainly worked hard and it was such fun. I would recommend it highly.
Quotes & Highlights
- View the show's cast list at the Porchlight Music Theatre's website.
Porchlight Music Theatre presents The King and I by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. Based on the book Anna and the King of Siam by Margaret Landon.
As America fights its Civil War, Anna, an English widow, sails to Bangkok with her young son to tutor the wives and children of the King of Siam. The King wishes Siam to have a larger role on the world stage while maintaining its traditions as he increasingly turns to Anna for assistance.
Featuring such classics as “Shall We Dance” and “Getting to Know You," The King and I is a story of a man and a woman with matching intelligence and strength, but clashing personalities, prejudices and politics.
