The new Broadway musical “Kimberly Akimbo” will set off on a 75-week North American tour. The tour will launch at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts in September 2024 and continue on to play more than 60 cities.

The show features music by Jeanine Tesori and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire, who also wrote the musical’s book based on his play of the same name. The production is directed by Jessica Stone with choreography by Danny Mefford.
