Even if you are not familiar with the story of the King and I you would most definitely recognize the music because the songs are timeless classics. This Rodgers & Hammerstein production is in town for a limited time at the Aronoff Center for the Arts and you are not going to want to miss it! The show is running now through April 22nd 2018.
Sam and I went to see the King and I last night and it was the first time I had seen this Broadway classic on stage. I was so impressed with every little bit of it…the beautiful singing, the gorgeous costumes, the fabulous dancing, the special effects, and the perfection of the entire production. And the show was a great opening for some conversations with Sam about equality, biases, empathy and love. We both thoroughly enjoyed the show, I love introducing to new (to them) productions and feeding their love and appreciation for the arts.
This is a wonderful production for all ages, start planning your day at the theatre now! Call your girlfriends, take your significant other, or introduce your children to a class Broadway production. You can find ticket information below.
