    King Kong Tickets

    A ground-breaking classic of American cinema, King Kong has gripped audiences for decades. Now Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) brings the giant to life once more in King Kong the musical at the Broadway Theatre.

    King Kong takes audiences on an emotional journey through the eyes of young actress Ann Darrow. Dreaming of a big break, she joins filmmaker Carl Denham on a voyage to the mysterious Skull Island. What greets them is something they could never have imagined: an enormous ape known only as “Kong”. The two New Yorkers are faced with a striking moral dilemma... do they profit from this magnificent creature, or leave him in peace? Using heart-pounding animatronics and puppetry, King Kong the musical is the ultimate story pitting man versus nature and greed versus humanity.

    Christiani Pitts stars as Ann Darrow, with previous credits including A Bronx Tale on Broadway and regional productions of Big Fish and Cabaret. Eric William Morris joins Pitts as Carl Denham; he has previously performed in Mamma Mia!, and Coram Boy. King Kong himself is thrillingly realized with a team including aerial movement director Gavin Robbins (DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon).

    King Kong is directed and choreographed by Olivier Award winner Drew McOnie (Jesus Christ Superstar, Strictly Ballroom), with a powerful score by Marius de Vries, who won BAFTA Awards for his work on Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge!, and Eddie Perfect (Beetlejuice The Musical). The creative team also includes a book by Jack Thorne, who is best known for his work on Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, currently bewitching audiences at the Lyric Theatre.

    An emotional and exhilarating production that sees the king of movie monsters rule the stage, King Kong at the Broadway Theatre has been playing to rapt audiences since October 2018.

    Performance dates: 05 Oct 2018 - 18 Aug 2019

    What an amazing show! The effects were just revolutionary when it comes to a broadway stage. I’ve never seen anything like it! I can’t believe a show this amazing is closing this year. The puppeteers are really the stars of this show! It’s amazing how they not only brought Kong to life but made it look real and seamless! I can’t put into words how amazing the effects are, you would never believe King Kong would be easily adapted into a broadway stage but it works! Please go see this show before it closes! This is the show all others should be compared to when it comes to effects!

    The show was unlike anything I've ever seen - the theatricality and set were phenomenal. the puppetry of King Kong blew me away and all the technical work brought the piece to life so well. there were some good numbers in the show but some of the acting scenes and a few songs brought the pace down slightly.

    This is the most incredible show from the moment it starts to the moment it finishes. I was in complete awe of this production. There is some awesome choreography and the music is sublime. The creativity is jaw dropping of both the set and of course Kong himself. The moment when you know Kong is there but you can't see him, is a moment that will stay with me forever. you could hear a pin drop in the auditorium. Absolutely mind blowing!

    If not for anything else, go for the puppet! The sound design and lighting design of this show are stellar, and the choreography is fun and exciting. Loved the performances by the leading cast, and definitely isn’t as bad as critics made it seem. Fun, enjoyable, and heartfelt!

    The actors were great but Kong steals the show. This is the most impressive production I've seen from a technical perspective. Besides the spectacular special effects, the music and story are rather forgettable.
