Following a Broadway run and a sell out record breaking season at the London Palladium, hit musical ‘ The King and I’ will be coming to Alexandra in Birmingham.

The run will be for the festive season, from December 10 to January 4.

Performing as Anna, fresh from her West End success, will be Annalene Beechey and reprising his critically acclaimed Broadway performance as The King will be Jose Llana. The two stars have been wowing audiences as the Rodgers & Hammerstein’s multi-award winning musical embarked on its international tour earlier this year and now the acting and dancing tour de force will be reunited in the Midlands this festive season.

Annalene said: “I absolutely love playing Anna, she is a dream role for any actress.

Jose said: “To be able to tour the beautiful UK and see so many of your incredible cities like Birmingham is really exciting for me.”
