“King Kong” Coming to Broadway: Listen Here to Musical Sampler of Blockbuster


Now that Tony season is over, we look forward to the shows of 2014. The big one will be “King Kong,” brought to us by Cameron McKintosh and friends. “King Kong” starts previews on May 28 in Australia. And now we have a musical sampler from the show. You can listen to it here. The show will be in 3D (ha ha). Anyway, this should be the “Spider Man: Turn off the Dark” of 2014. Big budget. Big expectations.
