About the Show

Winner of every off-Broadway “Best Musical” award, including the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, the “powerful new musical” (Jesse Green, The New York Times) Kimberly Akimbo is moving to Broadway this October. Tony Award® winner Victoria Clark stars as Kim, a bright and funny Jersey teen who happens to look like a 72-year-old lady. And yet her aging disease may be the least of her problems. Forced to maneuver family secrets, borderline personalities, and possible felony charges, Kim is determined to find happiness in a world where not even time is on her side. Written by Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire and Tony Award® winner Jeanine Tesori, with direction by Outer Critics Circle Award winner Jessica Stone, Kimberly Akimbo “feels like a miracle — the funniest and most moving experience of my entire return to theatergoing” (Peter Marks, The Washington Post).

“What’s an anagram for ‘wonderful’? Kimberly Akimbo is a powerful new musical — funny and moving. It’s the rare example of a good play that has become an even better musical.”

– Jesse Green, The New York Times

“The best new musical of 2021! Clever, touching and idiosyncratic.”

– Adam Feldman, Time Out New York

“The Best New Musical of the Year! Sweet and bitter, hilarious and touching.”

– Helen Shaw, New York Magazine
