To date, The King and I has won multiple Tony Awards and has grossed over $60 million worldwide.
True Story…The stage and film adaptations of The King and I were based on the book Anna and the King of Siam written by Margaret Landon in 1944. The book was based on the real Anna Leonowens’ memoirs of the time she spent in Bangkok teaching the royal family to speak English. It has been speculated that some of her memoirs have been exaggerated to make them more interesting. Though the premise of the book is based loosely on actual events, many of the smaller details have been sensationalized for the purpose of entertainment.
