Preview: "The King and I" in Potsdam

A classic piece of musical theater opens at SUNY-Potsdam tonight. The King and I, written by Rodgers and Hammerstein, is the Community Performance Series' summer production.

It was based on Margaret Landon's 1944 novel Anna and the King of Siam. The Potsdam production includes a cast, staff and crew of more than 100 individuals. Todd Moe spoke with Director Vic DiMonda, and Darlene Sinclair, who plays Anna, the widowed English school teacher.
