The King and I

When: Sundays, 1 p.m., Saturdays, 2 & 7:30 p.m. and Tuesdays-Fridays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Dec. 10 2017

Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I is musical about a culture clash and the march of progress. The King of Siam hires a British schoolteacher to teach his favorite wives and their children Western ways. Anna, the teacher, is a difficult employee who bristles at the king's imperious manner, but also admires him for wanting to modernize. Both are stubborn and proud, and perhaps attracted to each other — but such a love can never be. The Tony Award-winning Lincoln Center Theater revival of The King and I visits the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com) for a two-week run. Performances take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday (November 28 to December 10). Tickets are $39 to $115.
