"The King and I"

Who played Anna and the King? Just curious. It is my opinion, of course, that no one can top Yul Brynner as the King. He really made the role his. And, of course, the movie is terrific, and I'm glad you enjoyed the stage version. Many years ago, I had an Asian-American playmate who ended up in the tour version (early 80's) with Yul Brynner. (They always get local kids to fill out children's roles in every city.) Also a side note: my folks saw the show in London with Elaine Paige (the first-ever Grizabella in "Cats", among other things), and thought she was too old to be playing Anna.

Ah well. As long as it isn't that farcical animated version where the King lives and Barbra Streisand sings one of the songs, I'll watch it...:)

What other shows are in the season tickets you got? I hear "Oliver!" is coming/has come. (What I wouldn't give to play Bill Sikes or Fagin, if anything because they have the coolest songs in the show.)

Let's see....I think we only have Phantom and some Disney thing left. Haven't seen mention of Oliver! That would be nifty.

He's (not all) there, the Phantom of the Opera...

Which "Phantom"? There was, of course, Andrew Lloyd Webber's version, then a lesser-known version simply called "Phantom".

As for "some Disney thing"...hmmm, the only things I can think of are "Beauty and the Beast", "Aida" (Elton John's version, not Verdi's), or "The Lion King".

Now that I think about it, I think "Oliver!" was actually at the Fox, not the Fisher. Ever since I got tickets to see "Oklahoma!" at the Fox last year, I get the occasional postcard in the mail telling me when other shows are coming.
