In partnership with the Jacob Burns Film Center, The Actors Fund will host a special screening of the 1933 film King Kong on August 21, continuing its ongoing “Life on the Stage: Conversation and Film” series.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with part of the creative team of the upcoming Broadway musical King Kong, including Olivier Award-winning director-choreographer Drew McOnie, set and projection designer Peter England, creature designer Sonny Tilders, and lead producer and Global Creatures CEO Carmen Pavlovic.
Producer Dori Berinstein will moderate and lead the conversation about King Kong’s journey from screen to stage.
Based on the 1932 novel, King Kong follows actress Ann Darrow (to be played on stage Christiani Pitts) and filmmaker Carl Denham (Eric William Morris) on their journey to capture a beast that is larger than life. The Broadway production will feature a one-ton, two-story animatronic puppet.
The 1933 film stars Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong.
