King Kong New York Tickets
King Kong New York TicketsBased on the classic 1933 film, King Kong is a musical extravaganza that revolves around the adventures of a down-and-out film director named Carl Denham, first mate Jack Driscoll and a struggling actress named Ann Darrow. Searching for his next great spectacle, Denham hatches a plan to film his movie on an exotic and remote island known as Skull Island, where an ancient and untamed creature resides. You can catch the spectacle for yourself on Broadway.
The Eighth Wonder of the WorldKing Kong began life as an Australian production, taking around five years to go from an idea to the stage. Marius de Vries, who has worked on Moulin Rouge!, Romeo and Juliet and later La La Land, composed the music for the play, while playwright Craig Lucas wrote the book and lyrics. The centerpiece of the musical, however, is a 20-foot-tall animatronic gorilla created by Creature Technology Company. The one-ton beast features 985 feet of electrical cable and 1,500 connections, requiring a large team to control its lifelike movements. King Kong made its worldwide debut at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne, Australia, June 15, 2013, and closed after nine months. To adapt the musical for Broadway, Jack Thorne, who won the 2018 Tony Award for Best Play with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, made major modifications to the book and lyrics. The resulting musical made its New York premiere at the Broadway Theatre Nov. 8, 2018, and then closed Aug. 18 of the following year. The original Broadway production received three Tony Award nominations for Best Scenic Design of a Musical, Best Lighting Design of a Musical and Best Sound Design of a Musical. Sonny Tilders and Creature Technology Company won a Special Tony Award for their work on the animatronic character.
