Our next show is going to be Kimberly Akimbo on Broadway on June 6th. It is nominated for 8 Tony awards.
Kim is a wonderful, charming New Jersey teen who just happens to look like a 72-year-old woman. Kim suffers from a disease that causes her body to age nearly five times faster than most. Yet somehow, that might be the least of her problems. Kim’s family is collapsing as long-held secrets come out, and they’re caught in moneymaking schemes which might put them in jail. With the help of her only friend, a teenage boy, can Kim figure it all out?
Kimberly Akimbo began as a play, written by Lindsay-Abaire and was first produced at South Coast Repertory in 2001. The play was later produced in New York by Manhattan Theatre Club in 2003, earning rave reviews, particularly for its star Marylouise Burke. (Older actors play Kim, rather than young actors made up to look like older women.) Lindsay-Abaire is a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, also known for works such as Rabbit Hole and Good People.
For the Kimberly Akimbo musical adaptation, Lindsay-Abaire has teamed up with Jeanine Tesori, a Tony Award winner for Fun Home and one of the most celebrated musical theatre composers of her generation.
