Australia's KING KONG Musical Gives Away Free Track - 'A Simple Prayer'
"A Simple Prayer was" composed by Marius de Vries with lyrics by Daniel Kramer, Michael Mitnick & Marius de Vries. Sung by Esther Hannaford as Ann Darrow. In the show, it is performed by Ann Darrow near the start of Act 2 when she has returned to New York City.
After 5 years of development, 6 months of rehearsal, 4 season extensions and 293 curtain calls, KING KONG will have its final performance on Sunday 16 February 2014 as the production ramps up planning for a northern hemisphere season (likely to be the USA, but Germany is also in the cards).
KING KONG took out 5 Helpmann Awards this year including Best Lighting, Best Sound, Best Scenic Design, Best Costume Design and Outstanding Theatrical Achievement. The production has also proved a major ally for the Victorian arts training institutions, with graduates of the Victorian College of the Arts and the National Institute of Circus Arts being the primary suppliers of talent for the production's 50-strong cast.
