“King Kong,” the epic modern myth comes alive on Broadway through an innovative mix of animatronics, puppetry, music, and stagecraft! It’s 1931, the world is in the grip of the Great Depression, and New York City is a place of pressure, of desperation, but also of hope. Enter Ann Darrow (Christina Pitts), a fearless young actress with a will of steel and dreams that reach as high as the just-completed Empire State Building. Throwing caution to the winds, she joins Carl Denham, a fast-talking filmmaker, on a voyage to the mysterious Skull Island. There, they encounter a wonder more astonishing than they could have possibly imagined: a 20-foot-tall, 2,000-pound ape known only as Kong and, to her surprise, Ann finds an unexpected kindred spirit in this magnificent, untameable creature.
