“Getting to Know” Broadway’s The King and I
The revival of the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic waltzes to the Great White Way this spring.

For a Broadway musical that premiered in 1951, The King and I is shockingly relevant. Strip the show of such classics as “Getting to Know You” and “Shall We Dance?” and what remains is the story of a ruler with a dictatorial bent who is grappling with Western cultural influences and is at odds with women who demand to be heard. The contemporary feel of The King and I is what persuaded Bartlett Sher to stage the revival that opens this month at Lincoln Center Theater. “Rodgers and Hammerstein are like Shakespeare,” Sher says. “You are engaged in very serious questions and at the same time have a good time.”

Sher’s surprising and shrewd pick is Japanese film star Ken Watanabe, whose performance as the quietly noble garrison commander in Clint Eastwood’s 2006 Letters from Iwo Jima so impressed the director that he sought out the actor two years ago in Vancouver, where Watanabe was filming Godzilla. “Bart said to me, ‘I do not need a good singer. I do not need a good dancer. I need a king!’ ” he recalls. Sher prevailed, which is a tribute to his cajolery as much as it is to Watanabe’s intrepidness. “In Japan, we have this expression,” says Watanabe. “Even a pig will climb a tree if you sweet-talk him.”
