WhatsOnStage has an exclusive first look at the screened version of The King and I, which will be broadcast in cinemas on 29 November.

Bartlett Sher's award-winning Lincoln Center production, which stars Kelli O'Hara, Ken Watanabe and Ruthie Ann Miles, will be screened up and down the country for one night only on 29 November.

In her review of the Palladium West End transfer, Daisy Bowie-Sell said: " this is undeniably a beautiful revival, created with care, respect and skill and as a result, it is mostly simply a joy to watch." When it first opened in June the musical had the biggest grossing week in the London Palladium's history, taking £1,058,317.50 for an eight-performance week. It has now closed in the West End.

You can watch the video below, which features footage from "Getting to Know You", "Whistle a Happy Tune" and "Shall We Dance".

The revival has design by Michael Yeargan, costume design by Catherine Zuber (who won a Tony Award for her designs in New York), lighting design by Donald Holder, sound design by Scott Lehrer, choreography by Chistoper Gattelli, musicial supervision by Ted Sperling and musical direction by Stephen Ridley.

Tickets for the cinema screenings are currently on sale, with the show having a 12A certificate.
