KING KONG comes alive through a stunning mix of puppetry, music and stagecraft. This “epic thrill ride” (Variety) follows the ambitious actress Ann Darrow and the filmmaker who promises to make her a star. Together, they voyage from 1930s New York to an uncharted island to capture the world’s greatest wonder. At the center of this theatrical reimagining: a 20-foot high, 2,000-pound ape and the woman who risks everything to help him.
Directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie (In the Heights), KING KONG features a score by Marius de Vries (La La Land) and Eddie Perfect (Beetlejuice The Musical), and a book by Jack Thorne, the Tony®-winning writer of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. Don’t miss the “heart-stopping spectacle” (Newsday) that People calls “as thrilling as any action movie.”
