London is the undisputed theatre capital of the world. I am delighted that last year was a record year for the capital’s theatre business with box office revenues topping the £700 million mark and the success of musicals in particular helping to push theatre audiences past 15 million for the first time since audience records began more than 30 years ago. London Theatre is also great value for money – a lot cheaper than across the pond. I am delighted to currently be producing the astonishing Broadway revival of The King and I at the London Palladium with a range of tickets prices to suit all budgets. We opened to extraordinary reviews at the London Palladium, a magnificent 2,286-seat Grade II heritage listed theatre in Argyll Street near Oxford Circus. From the roster of stars that have played there and many televised performances, it is arguably the most famous theatre in the world, especially for musical variety shows. Throughout my career, I have been lucky enough to produce or co-produce musicals and drama in the West End, internationally and on national tours, but what I really relish is the sheer enjoyment that live entertainment brings to people of all ages as well as all walks of life. Night after night The King and I is bringing such pleasure to theatregoers many of whom are on their first visit to London. The musical's plot is as significant now as ever, relating the experiences of Anna, a British schoolteacher hired as part of the King of Siam’s (Thailand) drive to modernise his country. The relationship between the King and Anna is marked by conflict through much of the piece, as well as by a love to which neither can admit. Making their West End debuts are the original Broadway stars; reprising her Tony Award-winning performance and ‘Broadway musical’s undisputed Queen’ – The Sunday Times, Kelli O’Hara (Anna), Tony and Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The King) ‘A powerhouse’ – The Times. With one of the finest scores ever written, The King and I is a testament to the lavish heritage of gloriously romantic musical theatre. I hope you have an unforgettable time in London – theatre capital of the world!
