“`King Kong – The epic modern myth comes alive on Broadway through an innovative mix of animatronics, puppetry, music, and stagecraft.  This stage show premiered on Thursday at the Broadway Theatre. It is based on Merian C. Cooper’s 1932 adventure novel that inspired the 1933 Hollywood classic, and a subsequent film franchise.

“`Directed and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Drew McOnie, King Kong features an electrifying music score by Marius de Vries (La La Land) and Eddie Perfect (Beetlejuice the Musical), and a book by Jack Thorne, the Tony and Olivier Award-winning playwright of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

“`This oft-told story has appeared in a number of movies, with the original a ground-breaking production making stars of producer/director/scribe Merian C Cooper, actors Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, Bruce Cabot, and special effects animator Willis O’Brien.  Composer Max Steiner’s score for King Kong modeled the method of adding background music into a motion picture.

“`King Kong is a gripping and spectacular tale of unlikely friendships, unshakable courage, and breaking free from cages others put us in. Do not miss this exhilarating, emotional LIVE encounter with a legend that has always been too big to contain.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
