I saw King Kong live in Melbourne Australia at the World Premier in 2013. The
theatre buzzed with excitement and anticipation as people filed into the theatre to
await this amazing musical. It all started as any other musical until the explorer
team arrived in the jungle. We first knew Kong was approaching by the tremendous
roar which resounded through the theatre. The audience erupted into cheers and
applause. Goose bumps erupted over my body as the great creature could be heard
running through the jungle. Once he appeared the emotion in myself and the
audience was clearly visible. The first sighting of Kong brought people to their feet
with more intense cheering and applause.
I still have goose bumps return to my body every time I tell someone about this
amazing experience. Behold New Yorkers you are in for an experience beyond
imagination and certainly one that Broadway has never seen before.
Hold onto your seats as this is a wild ride.

NOTHING LIKE IT
The acting and singing were all you would expect on Broadway,
excellent. The dancing, however, was unique and special with
beautiful execution. And then there was Kong...the Magnificent!!!.
There has never been anything like him. Coupled with the lighting
and scenery, the audience was mezmerized when we weren't
cheering. It was amazing how much emotion was displayed on
Kongs face. I think the will have to create a new category of Tony
just for Kong.

KING KONG ON BROADWAY
Wow! Saw this magnificent show last night, October 5th, opening night. The director
welcomed us and then we sat back and saw a spectacular work of art! Of course, it
could have been done completely as a mechanical piece; but the puppeteers, (along
with robotics and stagecraft) made it even more interesting to watch! and I loved it. The
movements, size, sound, and set pieces were amazing! I felt like I was on the ship to
Skull Island from the get go. Not a dull moment and the acting was superb! The climbing
up the Empire State was so mesmerizing, too.
Just a few little things...water should be in Kong's hand when given to Ann...didn't see a
drop, dirt should be seen when Ann soothes his leg from the bite, (there was nothing),
and a bit abrupt from Kong to the Carl and Lumpy scene which has great dialogue
between the two. Also, I would have had a blackout right before the end of
Act I when Kong goes down...no dialogue..just a blackout. This would make it more
Still loved it!

KONG IS MAGNIFICENT - AND FUN!
Trust audiences, this show is great and like
nothing else on Broadway. Ignore some
critics who don't know how to relax and
enjoy the spectacular Kong, see if for
yourself. You'll enjoy it and the Kong is
amazing. Christiani Pitts is also wonderful
with a strong Ann Darrow who's no damsel
in distress now.

"KING KONG" AT THE BROADWAY THEATRE
Seeing "King Kong" on Halloween was the capstone of my honeymoon in Boo York
City, My wife and I were thoroughly entertained for over two hours by the stagecraft
and music,. Kong makes his appearance about a third of the way into the show, and
the puppet alone is worth the price of admission. Much more awe inspiring than
anything at the Universal Studios theme parks. We were in the seventh row, and
when Kong stepped to the edge of the stage at one point, it is truly breath-taking.
He is over 20 feet high and weighs more than a ton (it takes 14 puppeteers to
seamlessly operate the giant ape). Kong is fierce but doesn't kill anyone in this
telling, so take the kids, by all means, I was a little disappointed by the fight scene
with a giant snake...I would have preferred a carnivore from "Walking with
Dinosaurs." I find it troubling that so many critics panned "King Kong"...I'm a
passionate fan of the 1933 film classic and embrace this musical completely. Go see
it by April 14.

EXCITING! SEE IT!
King Kong was great! The special effects, the lighting, the staging, the ingenious way they did the voyage, showed Kong going up the Empire State, the ending -- all were simply so creative and exciting to watch. The dancing was excellent, the 3 main actors were dynamic and charismatic. The only disappointment was the score. The music existed, but was un-melodious and not very memorable. Still, the show generally was thrilling and fun, and I would advise everyone to see it.
