After five years of development and six months of rehearsals, the multi-million-dollar stage musical adaptation of King Kong is now playing (check out our earlier article for tons of info), and the show's creators unveiled the full-size Kong in a preview of a scene from the show, including the musical number “Full Moon Lullaby,” which you can watch below (courtesy of Australian site Theatre People):
 
 
The Australia-based King Kong is directed by Daniel Kramer, with an international cast featuring over 40 actors, singers, dancers and circus performers, as well as the one-ton, six-meter-tall Kong designed by Sonny Tilders (creator of the live arena events “Walking With Dinosaurs” and “How to Train Your Dragon”) and operated by master puppeteer Peter Wilson.
