‘King Kong’ to open on Broadway in Fall 2018

Producers Global Creatures and Roy Furman have today announced that the acclaimed new stage adaptation of King Kong will arrive on Broadway in fall of 2018, playing at the Shubert Organisation’s Broadway Theatre, following the limited engagement of Miss Saigon.

Written by Jack Thorne, and directed and choreographed by Drew McOnie, the score for King Kong will be composed by four-time Grammy nominee Marius de Vries, with songs by Helpmann Award winner Eddie Perfect, and feature pioneering creature design by Sonny Tilders, bringing together the worlds of animatronics and puppetry that has never been seen on stage before.

Global Creatures CEO Carmen Pavlovic said:

“I’m thrilled that King Kong will be coming to Broadway next season led by Drew McOnie and Jack Thorne, who will bring a new dimension to the telling of Kong’s story. Drew’s physical world will allow Kong to live in ways we never thought possible, propelled by Jack’s text and the score and songs written by Marius de Vries and Eddie Perfect.”

King Kong’s complete design team will include Peter England (Set Design), Sonny Tilders (Creature Design), Roger Kirk (Costume Design), Peter Mumford (Lighting Design), Peter Hylenski (Sound Design), Gavin Robins (Aerial and King Kong Movement Director). King Kong is authorized by the Merian C. Cooper Estate and based on his original 1933 screenplay.

Casting, additional members of the creative team, and ticketing details for King Kong will be announced at a later date.
