The King And I Atlanta Tickets
The King and I Atlanta TicketsThe story behind The King and I is inspired by the personal relationship of Anna Leonowens and the King of Siam. This British lady’s intimate perspective of Siam’s monarch was made into a best-selling book, Anna and the King of Siam, in 1946. The book became the musical titled The King and I. The stage act not only turns real events into song and dance, but it also tells the world the details of how a British teacher lived in the presence of a king.
Getting to Know the King and IAs an activist, Anna Harriette Leonowens grew up in India with an Anglo-Saxon heritage. The King of Siam invited her into his royal court to teach his many children. Attendees of The King and I, like Anna, are invited into a civilization where a single monarchy rules and where his word is absolute law. The musical shows how Anna reacted to his antiquated nation of Siam, which is now Thailand. Anna’s story comes from a collection of memoirs that paint a picture of her experience. Her preserved pages give us a glimpse into her obedience and eventual love affair. You can get your tickets today to see and hear the story through the beloved musical.
