The most celebrated new musical of the season, KIMBERLY AKIMBO is “Broadway’s next hot ticket!” (Variety), and “the best musical of the year”! (New York Magazine)
In the “funny, moving, and powerful“ (New York Times) new musical KIMBERLY AKIMBO, Kim is a bright and funny Jersey teen, who happens to look like a 72-year-old lady. And yet her aging disease may be the least of her problems. Forced to maneuver family secrets, borderline personalities, and possible felony charges, Kim is determined to find happiness in a world where not even time is on her side.
Named Best Musical by the NY Drama Critics’ Circle, the Drama Desk Awards, the Lucille Lortel Awards, and the Outer Critics Circle, KIMBERLY AKIMBO is the new musical from Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole, Good People) and Tony Award-winner Jeanine Tesori (Caroline or Change, Fun Home). Directed by Jessica Stone and choreographed by Danny Mefford, KIMBERLY AKIMBO transfers to Broadway following a critically-acclaimed, sold-out run off-Broadway.
