King Kong Musical To Give Regards To Broadway?

Written By: Ken Hulsey

Generally when you mix monsters with musicals you get a rather mixed bag. On one side you have Andrew Lloyd Webber's monster hit "Phantom of the Opera" and on the other you have Universal's mind-numbingly dumb "Creature from the Black Lagoon." Now producer Carmen Pavlovic has adapted "King Kong" for the stage with the assistance of Tony award nominated writer Craig Lucas and composer Marius de Vries.

Though "Kong" will feature over 40 actors and singers the true star will be a 40-foot-tall animatronic gorilla that is being designed by Global Creatures the same company that produced the dinosaurs for "Walking With Dinosaurs."

If all goes well for "Kong" in its initial run in Melbourne, Australia later this year than Pavlovic will move the production to Broadway in 2012 before returning in 2013.

As the producer describes it the musical version of the "beauty and the beast" tale will be a story about a "a woman and a giant ape fall in love in Depression-era New York, as the ape proceeds to wreak havoc upon the city."

Now that's good theater!

However, if you want to see how bad a "King Kong" musical "could" be check out this little video from the fine film making country of Bangladesh:
