The King & I

August 17, 2017 New York, NY, USA

Who: My mom & I

What: The King & I, the classic story about Anna and the king of Siam
When: October 2015/August 2017
Where: Vivian Beaumont theater, New York/The Kennedy Center, Washington, DC

Why: Rodgers and Hammerstein musicals run in my blood
Thoughts: In New York, I adored this show. I'd grown up on the movie and enjoyed it, but as it should be, it didn't hold a candle to this gorgeous stage production. I knew I had to take my mom to see it when I had the chance as she is the one who raised me to love musicals, especially those of Rodgers & Hammerstein. I got my chance recently when the national tour came to Washington, DC. While not as thorough as the New York production (and wow, the Vivian Beaumaunt is a lovely theatre!), it was still enjoyable and tells a story that is still relevant to society.
