Highlights From King Kong in Australia

The world-premiere musical King Kong, a rock-fueled spin on beauty and the beast, is now playing at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne. It has a book by Tony Award nominee Craig Lucas and features a six-meter-tall puppet desgined by Global Creatures that brings the massive silverback ape to life. Composer and arranger Marius de Vries created and oversees a score that features revamped versions of 1930s Broadway classics like "Get Happy," "I Wanna Be Loved By You" and "Brother Can You Spare a Dime" as well as new and existing songs from a mix of contemporary artists: Robert Del Naja from Massive Attack, Sarah McLachlan, Justice, Guy Garvey from Elbow and The Avalanches.
