The King and I Theatre Breaks
Sometimes its worth revisiting the classics, especially if that classic is Rodgers and Hammerstein’s The King And I. In 2024 The King and I Theatre Breaks will be available at the Dominion Theatre for a special 6 week run starring Call the Midwife‘s Helen George – see below for hotel suggestions.
Set in 1860’s Bangkok, The King and I tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.
It’s lovely to see The King and I come to The Dominion Theatre. This is the second time that the multi-award winning and critically acclaimed Lincoln Center Theater’s production has run in London. Last time it was along Oxford Street at the London Palladium.
This gloriously lavish production will feature a world-class company of over 50 West End and Broadway performers. who storm through the famous score including such hits as Whistle a Happy Tune, Getting to Know You, and Shall We Dance. This show is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre.
Don’t miss this “sumptuous” (Times) and “breath-taking” (New York Times) production of the musical classic. Brought to life by Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, My Fair Lady, To Kill a Mockingbird)

The King and I and nearby Hotels
The three star President, the Bedford Hotel and the Thistle Bloomsbury Park kick things off, but there are some great four star deals if you want to upgrade your The King and I Theatre Break. I would look no further than the Radisson Blu Edwardian Kenilworth or the Thistle Holborn.
