When the original King and I opened in 1951, it starred Gertrude Lawrence, for whom Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II had written the lead role of Anna Leonowens. The name of Yul Brynner – the King – was billed below the title. But after the superb 1956 film version starring Deborah Kerr, all that audiences remembered was Brynner, whose commanding presence made him a star of the first magnitude. Upon his return to Broadway at the Uris in May 1977 for a run of 719 performances, his name was above the title, and his co-star’s (Constance Towers first, then Angela Lansbury) was below, in smaller type. More modern recording techniques make this cast album one of the best. First LP release: November 1977.
