My Thoughts On King Kong The Musical

King KongLast Thursday, I walked into the Broadway Theatre to see King Kong. Now going in, I had no idea what to expect. Oh sure, I had seen videos from the Australian production, along with clips from the Broadway production as well. And yes, the gorilla, as well as the set was very impressive in both. But let's be honest shall we? You can't hum the scenery no matter how awesome it is.

So anyway, there I was in side Orchestra Row J getting ready for the show to start. Which by the way is still a very good view I might add. Now on to what I thought of the show. I loved it. From the opening number I was transformed to the exciting world of King King. Although truth be told, the magnificent beast didn't rear his head until about thirty or so minutes into the show.

Was it worth the wait? You better believe it. Now about the rest of the show. Did I walk out of the theatre humming the songs? No. But they were good and kept the plot moving along, which is what songs are supposed to so anyway. Plus there were quite a few funny moments, which I was not expecting either. I guess it goes to show, "You can't judge a book by it's cover." All in all it was a great night at the theatre, and if you get a chance, I strongly suggest you see it. Until next time theatre fans.
