The King & I

For the 2008 production of "The King & I", we welcomed a new Director, Yaacov Amsellem, who joined veteran LOGON Musical Director David Waldmann and Osnat Kashi as Choreographer. The producers were Frieda Gilmour and Paul Hare, Lisa Rubinovich was Stage Manager and Myra Bennett designed the poster and spectacular set . The wonderful Siamese costumes were designed by Melanie Lombard.
LOGON founder Ed Spitz portrayed the King of Siam displaying the knack for accents that he had previously shown in "The Most Happy Fella" and "Anything Goes".
Audiences from all venues agreed that this was one of the best shows LOGON has ever produced.
