SIMPLY PERFECT

A masterfully staged production without a weak link in the cast. An insanely outstanding orchestra We saw a matinee, so I was a bit worried the energy might be lackluster on stage. I was so wrong. The performance we saw on July 21 was one of magic, when everything was “on.” It felt like a Saturday night performance. The leads were perfect in their singing, acting, comedic timing and just their gusto for pleasing the semi-dead audience. My wife and I loved it so much we tried to get tickets to the evening performance but only the last row was available. Bottom line, Broadway, London, etc., etc., etc....you’ll never see a finer performance of The King andI I.

THE KING & I

I never had such a delightful time watching a live performance! I live near Albuquerque , NM, and watched it at the University's Popejoy auditorium. The settings were gorgeous; the performers magnificent in their acting, singing, & intricate dancing; and, of course, the live orchestra making the musical so real. I've always loved the movie but you must see it in the theater to get an even better feel for this touching story, set in Siam (Thailand). The many children in the play added to the family-friendly nature of "The King & I." I encourage you to go to this exceptional Broadway performance.

NICE SHOW FOR KIDS AND ADULTS

The show looked like it was made for the Fox Teater. It just looked like the whole place was in tune with the play. My family liked the play. The 2h55 went by so fast

AWESOME!

The musical captivatedthe audience with the beautiful voices of the cast. Anna and the Ling are perfectly matched, both playing extraordinary characters. The dancing was amazing and well thought out. Also, the costumes are fantastic as well as the lighting. The designers got it all perfectly. The set was another fantastic part of the show. Everyone in the Hershey area should go to see this beautiful rendition.

KING AND I FOX THEATER DETRIT

Stunning. Best performance I've seen in a LONG time. The acting, the set, the music, the dance, the vocals, the costumes - perfect. Yes, take the whole family. Our seats were right up front. If driving from northern suburbs and taking I-75, give yourself a little more than an hour to get there and park.

WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE

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!

GETTING TO KNOW THE KING AND I

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.

FABULOUS

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.

UNDERWHELMED

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.

SOMETHING MISSING

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.
