Queens Theatre and Common Man Musicals team up to bring you a special hour-long video performance of the Theatre For Young Audience musical, The Monkey King.
The Monkey King centers on Sun Wukong, a celebrated figure in Chinese folktales since his first appearance in the 16th Century Ming Dynasty novel, “Journey to the West.” This modern retelling offers a feminist twist on the traditional story and asks, “What would happen if the Monkey King were born a girl?”
With its heartfelt music and inspiring storyline, The Monkey King: A Modern Musical follows the adventures of the first-ever female Monkey King as she battles against Heaven and Earth’s most treacherous foes to save her beloved tribe and achieve immortality.
