Resorts World Manila Reveals Next Musical After The Sound of Music



From the geniuses behind Oklahoma!, Cinderella the Musical, and the Sound of Music comes another classic musical about heritage, culture, and Love.  Ladies and gentlemen may I present to you, for Resorts World Manila's next musical offering: Rodgers and Hammerstein's The King and I.

The King and I is a musical by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II. The musical play is based on the 1944 novel titled "Anna and the King of Siam" written by Margaret Landon which is based from the memoirs of Anna Leonowens, who became governess to the children of King Mongkut of Siam in the early 1860s. The story deals with the exploits of a English teacher hired as part of the King's plan to modernize his nation but also end up falling in Love with the royalty. The King and I became an instant hit in Broadway eventually winning Best Musical, Best Actress and Best Featured Actor. Since then The King and I become one of the most well loved Musical not only on Broadway but in the whole world.

Starring Leo Valdez as the King of Siam and Miss Saigon sensation Monique Wilson as Anna Leonowens.  The two will be joining forces as the show hits Manila in September. I think I only saw this show once and I can't even remember when.  So I'm happy that Resorts World is doing it on September 15, 2012 at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.  The show will be directed by Freddie Santos.  Watch out for more announcement about the show.
