I have gone to many plays and often come out thinking, I wish the vocals had been better. That was not the case with The King and I last night at the Moran Theatre. The vocals were superb, the sets rich looking, the kids adorable, and the music of R & H, timeless. Really enjoyed a wonderful night at the Theatre. Do not miss it!

i've really never cared for The King and I, but I've only known it from the movie. So it was with some apprehension that I chose to drive 2- 1/2 hours on a dark night in San Francisco traffic to see SHN's offering at the Golden Gate Theater. And I loved every minute of it. From the time the orchestra struck its first notes and the ship swung into view carrying Anna and her son, I knew we were in very capable hands. The orchestra was rich and full balancing the lovely voices that brought these songs to life for me. The costumes were beautiful The sets capably took us from one scene to the next adding richness to the action without being intrusive. The lighting worked well, and the movement on stage flowed easily. I feasted on the sounds, the sights, and the chance to get to know why this play has endured. This is a wonderful presentation. Go. Take the family. Spend time with each other in beautiful San Francisco finishing the night with this offering. I found it well worth the effort.

It was a wonderful show.

I was enthralled! Fabulous, funny and the fastest 2+ hours I have spent in a long time. Costumes, sets and acting/singing were top notch. A must see. I wish we had been a little closer. We began our evening at the Indochine restaurant which was delicious and reasonably priced.

I saw this a few days ago and must say it was the least enjoyable show I've see so far this year. It has been many, many years since I saw the movie, but I just didn't care for this. The opening number was nice, but it just didn't meet my expectations overall or entertain me as I'd hoped. The best part of the show was the actor that played the king. He really was superb throughout the whole show and he couldn't have done a better job. I had an excellent seat, in the middle of the fifth row, so had a great view of everything. I have to come from out of town, so i really want it to be worth it considering it's a day long affair and expensive. Sad to say, this show just wasn't worth it to me.

The performance was pleasant, however I was quite disappointed in the ending. I was expecting Something Wonderful to be played and sung when the King died. Instead, the play ended abruptly and the players came out for the curtain call. What a lost opportunity of emotion. I actually came home and was able to find and watch the end of the movie on Youtube, and realized that I was correct in my expectation. It would have made such a difference.
