A lonely teenager who looks like a 72-year-old woman with little time left to live, faces unrelenting challenges to her happiness that are not connected to her disease.
Kimberly Akimbo on Broadway Background
The musical is based on the 2000 play by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright David Lindsay-Abaires about a lonely teenage girl suffering from a disease that causes her to age four and a half times as fast as normal.
Original Play Version of the Show
The play version of the show was initially produced at the South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa, California in April 2001.
The show then premiered Off-Broadway at the Manhattan Theatre Club New York City Center in February 2003 and and had SNL alum Ana Gasteyer attached.
The Musical Adaptation
After a significant gap of just over 18 years, a musical adaptation of the show was developed and finally played at The Atlantic Theater Company's Linda Gross Theater in November 2021, with the music written by Jeanine Tesori.
Transfer to Broadway
Following positive reviews and decent ticket sales, the show transferred to Broadway October 2022 into a Shubert Organization theatre, The Booth Theatre, which is under external exterior construction.
What’s Kimberly Akimbo Like?
Not totally unlike the first half of the famous movie Benjamin Button, Kimberly Akimbo is a teenager who has a genetic disease that makes her look like a 72-year-old woman.
This problem alone would normally be enough of a challenge for most, but Kim is forced to maneuver around family secrets, challenging family personalities. She also faces felony charges for a crime that she did not commit, but all the evidence still points to her culpability.
Despite Kim's many setbacks in life, she is determined to find happiness where even time is not on her side and her body is breaking down.
Is Kimberly Akimbo Good for Kids?
The show is suitable for children over 12 years old as the story depicts the many of the challenges that teenagers go through, but they experience under much more favorable conditions.
