Kravis On Broadway 10th Anniversary Season Productions of
Rodgers & Hammerstein’s THE KING AND I
and FINDING NEVERLAND
Tony Award® and Audience Choice Award winning shows both on sale to the public beginning September 1 at 10 am
WEST PALM BEACH (August 21, 2017) – The public is invited to join in the celebration of a decade of smash hit shows from the Great White Way during the Raymond F. Kravis Center for the Performing Arts’ 2017/2018 season of Kravis On Broadway. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, September 1 at 10 am for the November 7 – 12 production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s THE KING AND I and the January 2 – 7 production of FINDING NEVERLAND.
Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this “breathtaking and exquisite” (The New York Times) musical, directed by Bartlett Sher. One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting to Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.” Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. Winner of the 2015 Tony Award® for Best Musical Revival, THE KING AND I is “too beautiful to miss” (New York Magazine).
The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash hit “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine. Vogue cheers, “It’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!” Directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically-acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event. FINDING NEVERLAND is “far and away the best musical of the year!” (NPR).
