Thanks to a tip from @docwho76, if you are near the UCB area and looking for something to do, tonight a group will put on an 8-bit musical version of “King of Kong”. That’s right. A musical based on the video game documentary film about Billy Mitchell and Steve Sanders rivalry over Donkey Kong.
Writers/actors Zach Paez and Matthew Patrick Davis are used to adapting odd choices into musicals. They have previously worked on “Jurassic Park”, “Shining” and “NeverEnding Story.”
The performance is $5 and seems to only be tonight at 5915 Franklin Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90028.
Here are a couple of songs from the musical:
