NEW YORK (AP) — A musical version of “King Kong” could be roaring onto a Broadway stage in a few years if its producers get their way.
Global Creatures, the Australian company behind the hit arena show “Walking With Dinosaurs,” is hoping its production of the classic ape story can find a theater on the Great White Way as early as 2013.
CEO Carmen Pavlovic says she and her team have just finished a six-week workshop to ensure their 23-foot mechanical Kong can pull off a show. Next, they’ll be polishing a script and score.
