Show Description

From Jack Thorne, the acclaimed writer of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, comes a thrilling theatrical take on the world’s most epic modern myth.

King Kong comes alive on Broadway through an innovative mix of robotics, puppetry and stagecraft. Follow an ambitious young actress and a maverick filmmaker as they voyage from the bustling streets of 1930s New York to an uncharted island to capture the greatest wonder the world has ever seen.

At the center of this 21st-century reimagining: a 2,000-pound gorilla brought roaring to life by a team of seamlessly integrated artists and technicians. 

Directed and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Drew McOnie, with an electrifying new score by Marius de Vries (La La Land) and Eddie Perfect (Strictly Ballroom)

The big galoot is truly a stage marvel unlike any I’ve ever seen before. Its designer, Sonny Tilders, has created a megapuppet that makes the marvels of “The Lion King” look like bits of origami. Looming at a mighty 20 feet, reportedly weighing a full ton, and manipulated by both black-clad puppeteers onstage and technicians backstage, Kong is nevertheless surprisingly light on his feet, as we see when he charges from the darkness to snatch Ann and spirit her away to his mountain aerie.
