The King and I is certainly a classic of the musical genre. The music is wonderful (you must know some of the songs . . . Getting to Know You, I Whistle a Happy Tune, Hello Young Lovers). Whether it's worth your money will depend on the production. Do you have any information about it?
I've never seen a production by the Aquila Theater company but I've read good things about it. They specialize in Shakespeare in a contemporary setting -- they did a Much Ado that somehow worked James Bond into the story (not literally, by implication). Twelfth Night seems to be a new production. Take a look at their website:
Aquila Theater Company
For myself, I'd be interested in seeing what they do. But you'll have to decide for yourself!

Yes, Duncan would be playing the role of Anna. I can't find any information on who the male lead is, though. I think I'll pass on this one as well.
Smokey Joes sounds interesting, but nothing too compelling. Fun music, but thats about all it has going for it as far as I can tell. and you were correct Natashka, its Stoller and Lieber.
Steel Magnolias is being put on by the The Montana Repertory Theatre. I can't find any other info than that.
Thanks for your replies!
