‘The King and I’ opens the Players’ 82nd year on stage

October 18, 2012
The Times Observer

Warren Players will begin its 82nd season with their production of Rodgers and Hammerstein's "The King and I." An adaptation of Margaret Landon's novel, "Anna and the King of Siam," the musical opened at the St. James Theater in March 1951 and won five Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Actor and Best Actress. "The King and I" was so popular that early revivals were mounted in 1977, 1985 and 1996. Yul Brenner portrayed the king in all but the 1996 production. The well-known 1956 film version also starred Brenner in the leading role.
