Catch 'The King and I' at the Kennedy Center

In the Opera House at The Kennedy Center through August 20, 2017 is a ballet production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I.


Lincoln Center Theater's critically acclaimed production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King and I, directed by Tony Award® winner Bartlett Sher, won four 2015 Tony Awards® including Best Revival of a Musical.
