The smash hit musical – now booking to 18 February 2018!
After an initial sold out 6 week season at the Fugard, King Kong returns by overwhelming public demand and is now booking until 18 February. Don’t miss your opportunity to catch this “knockout” and “impeccably performed” musical during its final season on home soil.
King Kong portrays the life and times of heavyweight boxer, Ezekiel Dlamini and is set to the scintillating music of Todd Matshikiza with legendary songs such as “Back of the Moon”, “King Kong” and “Sad Times, Bad Times”. The 1959 production of South Africa’s first black musical was set in Sophiatown in Johannesburg in the late-fifties and was seen by 200 000 South Africans before transferring to London’s West End. Whilst remaining true to the original production, a world-class creative team and an all South African cast have revitalised King Kong for the 21st century, giving it new life.
