The King and I: Watch New King Jose Llana, Betsy Morgan, Ruthie Ann Miles Sing


The fifth Broadway production of The King and I, has a new king — Jose LLana, who returned last month to the musical where he made his Broadway debut 19 years ago, at age 19, as the doomed lover Lun Tha. Now, in his seventh Broadway show, he is starring opposite Kelli O’Hara as King Mongkut of Siam in the early 1860s. Watch him below singing “A Puzzlement.”

Ruthie Ann Miles, who made her Broadway debut this year in The King And I as Lun Tha’s lover Lady Thiang, won a Tony Award for her role, one of four Tonys for the production, including Best Musical Revival. Here she sings “Something Wonderful.”

Betsy Morgan, who is Kelli O’Hara’s standby as Anna Leonowens, the British tutor to the King’s children, here sings “Hello, Young Lovers.”

They were all performing at the last Broadway in Bryant Park concert of 2015, on August 13th.
