Riotously imaginative, this extravaganza will be a hot ticket wherever it travels

The Guardian, UK

Closed 28 Jul 2013
Be prepared to be transported into the enchanting, fantastical world of Monkey: Journey to the West in a vibrant musical retelling of the Chinese classic by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, creators of the wildly popular Gorillaz.

Equal parts epic music theater and stunning animation, this hugely successful production includes a remarkable cast of Chinese acrobats, singers, mind-bending contortionists, martial artists, and transfixing animated displays, all under the inspired direction of Chen Shi-Zheng. This spectacular event, which has performed before sold-out audiences around the world, tells the story of a monk, Tripitaka, who journeys from China to India to find the Buddha and receive the scriptures' enduring impossible challenges.

The irrepressible Monkey King leads the monk and his animal companion protectors, creating havoc along the way. Don?t miss this stunning international retelling of this ancient tale.
