See The King And I at the Bristol Hippodrome

Set in the 1860s, The King and I tells the story of young British schoolteacher, Anna. Wanting to modernise his country, the King hires Anna to teach English to his multiple wives and his children. Things quickly turns rocky, as customs and culture clash and Anna and the King don’t see eye to eye. But before long, it becomes obvious there’s deeper feelings hiding beneath the surface. The King and I is a romance like no other, inspired by true events. The King and I stems from Margaret Landon’s 1944 novel Anna and the King of Siam. In 1951 it first appeared as a stage show on Broadway. In 1956, 20th Century Fox adapted the story for the big screen. The film version, titled The King and I, would win four Oscars, including Best Actor. This enduring and touching romantic tale continues to stun audiences around the world. Its numerous revivals are a testament to the lasting popularity. The current version directed by Bart Sher (South Pacific, My Fair Lady) won several Tony Awards, including ‘Best Revival’. He’s reunited with the creative team of the West End alongside a stunning, full orchestra. The production enjoyed a record-breaking season at the London Palladium, and will now travel to cities around the work, stopping at Bristol along the way. The Bristol Hippodrome is one of the most impressive places in Britain to see a stage show outside London. The theatre dates back to the early 1900s and is a stunning example of late Victorian architecture by Frank Matcham. As such a prominent landmark, the prestigious theatre takes the name of Bristol’s West End Theatre. Now you can see The King and I on stage at the dazzling Bristol Hippodrome. The King and I is showing in Bristol from 24th March to 4th April 2020, and tickets are available now. Don’t miss out on seeing Something Wonderful next Spring.

About

In the hundred years the Bristol Hippodrome has been open, it has delighted and intrigued visitors with some of the best in travelling theatre and entertainment. It is considered one of the UK’s major venues for The Arts, notorious for exhibiting world-class musicals from Broadway and the West End, and bringing Bristolians a versatile programme of opera, ballet, pantomimes, comedy and more. Its status as the Bristol West End is backed by the many shows it has received since opening in 1912. Matilda, Miss Saigon, Hairspray and Wicked have all toured at the Hippodrome; The Lion King kickstarted its regional tour there, and Mary Poppins and the English National Ballet’s The Nutcracker performed their world premieres at the venue. The Hippodrome even has its own choir that supports its array of musicals. The theatre was designed by Frank Matcham, a renowned theatrical architect of the late Victorian and Edwardian era. One of its special remaining features from Matcham is the dome located above the stalls, which can retract on clear evenings to reveal the night sky. It is believed to be the only operating dome in theatres across the UK. More contemporary embellishments include the Stairway of Stars, where visitors can flaunt their names in the grand foyer for up to two years. The theatre has weathered it's fair share of disasters, having survived World War II but succumbing to a fire three years later. However, it still retains its grand stature as a must visit attraction for theatre lovers.
