Starring Annalene Beechy and Jose Liana, the multi-award-winning Broadway show is loved by the public. This glorious production tells the story of a hidden romance which develops between Anna and the King of Siam. The king brings Anna and her son to Bangkok to teach his wives and children. He's determined to introduce Siam (today's Thailand) into the Western World and believes the safest route is through education. But when Anna arrives in Siam, she's shocked by the traditions the King values. They both try to find common ground.
Because Western rulers consider the King to be a barbarian, he tries to change his image with Anna's help. Although both have firm beliefs and respect for their own traditions, they overcome the differences through understanding, love, and respect. Underneath the turbulent, strongly opinionated and conflictual relationship between the king and Anna lies a truly moving love story.
Directed by Bart Sher, a Tony Award winner, The King and I features the finest tunes written by Rodgers and Hammerstein such as Getting to Know You, Whistle a Happy Tune and Shall We Dance.

In 1929 the Edinburgh Playhouse first opened as a super-cinema, modelled after the Roxy from New York. Since then, the theatre has expanded to welcome all mediums of entertainment, regularly hosting a wide variety of artists and shows. With respect to capacity, the Playhouse is considered the largest working theatre in the UK.
The venue is managed by the Ambassadors Theatre Group, known for producing the best West End shows across the UK. While the Playhouse it primarily known for receiving major touring musicals, such as Wicked, Matilda, Mamma Mia, Mary Poppins and Motown the Musical, the theatre is also frequented by comedians and musicians. The likes of Greg Davies and Billy Connolly have entertained their loyal followings at the Playhouse, where Connolly describes the venue as having the ‘best stage in Scotland’, and legendary bands and artists such as Bob Dylan, Metallica and The Who have all rocked out the ornate theatre.
In its long standing history in the community, the Edinburgh Playhouse has become an emblem of culture. The Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival both use its grand stage and large seating capacity during the summer. The theatre also reaches out to the local youth, delivering various workshops and projects to encourage adolescents and young adults to get involved, and perhaps even star on stage at a leading production.
