King Kong to Stomp Onto Broadway in December?

According to Gerry Ryan, chairman of Global Creatures, the production company producing the musical King Kong will be stomping onto Broadway in December 2014. After being a hit in Melbourne, the musical, which features a book by Craig Lucas and music by Sarah McLachlan, Massive Attack, and the Avalanches, will be looking for a home in a big Broadway house, with eyes on the Foxwoods Theater. If the Foxwoods does house the 20 foot tall puppet, it will be the second straight big budget extravaganza in the theater. What do you think? Is Broadway ready for the monkey musical?
