the producers were so involved in the monkey, they forgot to write a show.....simply awful. not one good song, lousy twist on the story....Ann was a blonde screamer, replaced by a powerful woman....silly and politically correct....silly and unnecessary.
I was embarrassed for the actors

KING DEAD ON ARRIVAL
One of the biggest wastes of money ever thrust upon
a stage. Ego and arrogance have driven this ape of a
musical to New York. Appalling songs by Eddie Perfect
(an amateur lyricist at best) and just the mess of
ideas with no clear narrative or purpose other than to
con hapless folk into forking over their cash with
claims of spectacle. The puppet is impressive, for 5
minutes. The remaining two hours in the theater
you’ll be wishing for a quick death - either yours or

NOT WORTHY OF BROADWAY
Weak and dreary script, mediocre leads, amateurish choreography, uncompelling
unmemorable music but a puppet that stole the show despite distracting stage
hands crawling all over it to keep it animated. It's just not deserving of all the hype
and I predict cruel media reviews and an early demise. It is just NOT worthy of
Broadway but might impress tourists where this is their unfortunate and
undeserved initiation to the theater.
Am sorry for the creators and "angels" here who no doubt went into this gamble
with heart and soul and big hopes. But it was all so very misguided with a such
feeble and unremarkable and disappointing vehicle like this.

A MOST WRETCHED EVENING ON BROADWAY
The new.musical of King Kong (yes, a concept as ridiculous as it sounds) is currently
in previews at The Broadway Theatre in New York. It looks like a fifth grade teacher
wrote a spring pageant version of Kong and someone threw fifteen million dollars at
Sometimes you just want the story to be the story you know and love. By pumping it
with the "appropriate" girl-power, natural conservation, anachronistic contemporary
choreography etc. it becomes a show that doesn't even know what it wants to be. If
you're going to set the show in 1931 I don't want to see break dancing. While on the
subject of the choreography, it's all very athletic and "dancy" but none of it is
The music was so loud it was pure distortion. The tunes are utterly unmemorable,
and seem so contrived. There are few actual characters in the show, and none of
them are likable. The Anne Darrow character is saddled with weak monologues to
imply communication with the twenty-foot puppet. It doesn't work

MAYBE A TONY FOR SET DESIGN
Show did not excite me. I see many shows, some several times. Once was enough for King
RM from New York, New York
If you are a real NY theater lover, stay away from this one. I will admit that the special
effects are outstanding but that does not make up a good show. The dancing is the
same number over and over again and adds nothing to the production. The female
star has a good voice but it is impossible to understand what she is saying in her
songs. There is not one memorable song in the score at all. What is a Broadway Show
without something to sing!!! If you want to go to see the special affects, go but don't
buy the expensive seats. In truth, I was amazed that the audience the.night I was there
stood up to give the performance a standing ovation. It was definitely not for the show
itself but for Kong!

I was very excited to see how King Kong on Broadway would be, because the idea of
such a beast on stage, and all the behind-the-scenes footage of the puppeteering
looked extremely impressive. Seeing him on stage truly was spectacular, for like ten
The show begins with a lame opening number with characters you feel absolutely
nothing for, and dancers you end up feeling bad for because they had to dance in
EVERY. SINGLE. NUMBER. Not to mention the music that no one will ever sing along to,
or remember. It's such a shame that the most impressive puppeteering and set design
that I've seen in my entire life was ruined by some of the most underwhelming writing,
choreography, score. And the puppet WAS MAGNIFICENT, which should give you an idea
of how bad these performances were.
The script was filled with tired tropes, explicated subtext, and plot threats that went
nowhere. The choreography was overindulgent. The score was thematically incoherent.
