Rodgers and Hammerstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece about a romantic rivalry on the Western frontier boasts a collection of classic songs and a spirit that's made it an enduring favorite. The story of the lovely Laurey and her two determined suitors -- Curly the cowboy and Jud the hired farmhand -- also tackles the class issues between farmers and cattlemen in the rugged landscape of a new state. The show boasts such Broadway favorites as "Oh What a Beautiful Mornin'," "People Will Say We're in Love," "The Surrey with the Fringe on Top" and the exuberant title song. This brilliant first collaboration between Rodgers and Hammerstein set box-office records as it ushered in the golden age of American musical theater. Learn More

My only expectations was that the King would be bald. I guess since I saw "Brenner" when I was young I had a preconcieved idea. I do believe that it adds to the character of the king. My opinion. Our party was of six and all us us enjoyed the play immensity.
East versus West makes for a dramatic, richly textured and ultimately uplifting tale of enormous fascination. It is 1862 in Siam and having been summoned by the King to serve as a tutor to his many children and wives, an English widow, Anna Leonowens, and her young son arrive at the Royal Palace in Bangkok. The King is largely considered to be a barbarian by those in the West and he seeks Anna’s assistance in changing his image, if not his ways. With both keeping a firm grip on their respective traditions and values, Anna and the King grow to understand and learn to respect each other in this truly unique love story. The dazzling score of this classic show includes “Getting To Know You” and “I Whistle A Happy Tune.”
