Monkey King

Monkey King

USA, 2013, 117 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Asian, Comedy, Drama, Music

A beautiful 3-D spectacle, Monkey King is a first of-its-kind event. A Hong Kong opera with a cast of more than 70 performers, a background of 20 stunning sets, more than 500 lavish costumes, and filmed with the most up-to-date technology, it will have you looking at theater in a whole new way.

Combining “dance-crobatics” with acrobatic kung fu and inspired by the legendary Chinese fable “Journey to the West,” Monkey King is a raucous, high-energy musical telling the story of a monk’s quest across China to recover a book of sacred teachings. A motley crew of warrior companions including his bodyguard, the incorrigible and mischievous Monkey King, accompanies him on his journey. Their path finds them beset by demons and monsters, matching wits with kings and gods, and discovering important truths about friendship and self.

Featuring breathtaking kung fu battles, spellbinding dance sequences, thrilling fight scenes, and an entirely original, driving rock score, Monkey King is a show that will thrill, amaze, and delight audiences of all ages.
