The King and I Indianapolis TicketsThe King and I is a famous musical from the legendary music duo Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, who also created South Pacific, The Sound of Music and Oklahoma! Rodgers and Hammerstein adapted the musical from the 1944 Margaret Landon novel, Anna and the King of Siam, which was itself based on a true story of the complicated and sometimes fraught relationship between the English governess, Anna Leonowens, and King Mongkut of Siam. In the 1860s, Anna is hired to teach the king's children as part of his plan to modernize Siam, but Anna and the king sometimes clash on important matters. Partly conceived as a vehicle for Gertrude Lawrence, the popularity of The King and I has transcended any one performer or star. You can catch a live performance of The King and I at the Clowes Memorial Hall in Indianapolis, Indiana. The King and I tickets are available at StubHub.
