Kelli O'Hara & Ken Watanabe Set for 'King & I' on Broadway!

Kelli O’Hara is set to make her return to Broadway next year in the upcoming revival of the classic musical The King and I!

The 38-year-old five-time Tony Award nominated actress will be joined in the show by Ken Watanabe, who is making his stage debut in the musical.

The King and I will start previews on March 12 ahead of an official April 16 opening at Lincoln Center Theater’s Vivian Beaumont Theater.

Kelli is one of today’s most stellar theater actresses, most recently starring in the short-lived musical The Bridges of Madison County.

Ken can currently be seen in Godzilla and as the voice of the autobot Drift in this weekend’s blockbuster film Transformers: Age of Extinction.

    I heard Tony Jaa is no longer an actor? Some say he is now a priest. He has not done any acting in a while. Martial artist fans love his work.
