PREPARE TO BE AMAZED!
KING KONG has taken Melbourne by storm, wowing critics and audiences alike!
A breathtaking fusion of the old and new, KING KONG takes audiences on an unforgettable adventure - from the bustling streets of 1933 New York, to the last uncharted place on earth, Skull Island. Join Ann Darrow as she ventures into the unknown, with maverick film maker Carl Denham and first mate Jack Driscoll, to come face to face with the incredible 8th wonder of the world, King Kong.
With a musical score like no other featuring tracks from artists such as Guy Garvey (Elbow), Sarah McLachlan, The Avalanches, 3D (Massive Attack) and Marius de Vries (Moulin Rouge, Romeo+Juliet), this new multi-million dollar production will inspire wonder, romance, and a sense of adventure, and redefine the way we experience music theatre.
KING KONG tells of an ambitious film director Carl Denham and Ann Darrow, the young woman he predicts to be Hollywood’s next big name. Carl takes his film crew on a perilous voyage to the last uncharted place on earth, Skull Island to capture Kong – a creature of legend and the last of his kind.
Kong is taken back to New York to be exploited as a Broadway exhibit. The love affair between Denham’s star, Ann Darrow, and the ship’s first mate, Jack Driscoll, unfolds against the horror of Kong’s ultimate escape and threatened destruction of Manhattan.
Make sure you don't miss this theatrical event that must be seen to be believed.
