As BroadwayWorld reported last spring, the Tony-winning production of Kimberly Akimbo has been hosting New York City public high school show choirs as they make their Broadway debuts on stage at the Booth Theater. The final choir from High Tech High School took the stage for an amazing rendition of 'Better' and you can watch their performance below!

"We so appreciate the producers helping to make the show accessible for NYC public school students," said Peter Avery, Director of Theater for New York City Public Schools. "It is even more inspiring for them to invite some of our young artists to perform on the very stage where the Kimberly Akimbo Broadway cast performs nightly."


A new musical about growing up and growing old (in no particular order), KIMBERLY AKIMBO was named BEST MUSICAL by the New York Drama Critics Circle, The Drama Desk Awards, The Lucille Lortel Awards, and The Outer Critics Circle Awards. It is currently nominated for eight Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical (Victoria Clark), Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical (Bonnie Milligan), Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a Musical (Justin Cooley), Best Score (David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori), Best Book (David Lindsay-Abaire), Best Direction of a Musical (Jessica Stone), and Best Orchestrations (John Clancy).

KIMBERLY AKIMBO features book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize-winner David Lindsay-Abaire, based on his acclaimed play of the same name; music by Tony Award-winner Jeanine Tesori; choreography by Danny Mefford; and direction by Jessica Stone, KIMBERLY AKIMBO opened on Broadway to unanimous rave reviews on November 10, 2022, following its world premiere at the Atlantic Theater Company in December 2021.

Kimberly is about to turn 16 and recently moved with her family to a new town in suburban New Jersey and is forced to navigate family dysfunction, a rare genetic condition, her first crush...and possible felony charges. Ever the optimist, she is determined to find happiness against all odds and embark on a great adventure.
