You’re likely familiar with the maverick pairing of Blur’s Damon Albarn with Tank Girl artist Jamie Hewlett, via their chart-topping pop creation, Gorillaz. This week, the duo’s most ambitious project to date hits NYC: Monkey: Journey to the West, which reframes a classic Chinese tale and comes complete with singers, acrobats and kung fu fighters. Whet your appetite for the spectacle with this TONY-exclusive Monkey strip.

Monkey: Journey to the West opens Saturday July 6, 2013 at the David H. Koch Theater.
