Show Overview

About Kimberly Akimbo

The winner of more Tony Awards than any other show this season!

Kimberly Akimbo is the Tony Award-winning Best Musical about growing up and growing old — in no particular order. It features a book and lyrics by Pulitzer Prize and two-time Tony Award winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole), music by two-time Tony Award winner Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home), choreography by Danny Mefford (Dear Evan Hansen) and direction by award-winning director Jessica Stone.

Kimberly (two-time Tony Award winner Victoria Clark) is about to turn 16 and recently moved with her family to a new town in suburban New Jersey. In this “howlingly funny heartbreaker of a show” (The New Yorker), Kim 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.
