Kung Fu panda to hold premie at the Venetian
Broadway Asia and DreamWorks Theatricals yesterday announced the launch of DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda Spectacular Live – a new live action entertainment at The Venetian Theatre, combining Hollywood, Broadway and circus.
Scheduled to commence in late December, five-time Tony Award winner Susan Stroman will bring her legendary talents to one of the most successful animated films of all time, Kung Fu Panda, according to a statement.
“The production will be an exciting new experience for audiences of all ages – as it incorporates storytelling, state-of-the art projection mapping and video design, immersive aerial and acrobatics as well as extraordinary puppetry and martial arts,” said director and choreographer Stroman.
Stroman, who is an award- winning artist, has assembled a creative team including some of the acclaimed live entertainment artists around the globe.
Co-conceived with David Thompson, the writer of Broadway’s longest running revival, Chicago, the live action show features character costumes and puppetry designed by Michael Curry and six-time Tony Award winning costumer designer William Ivey Long.
