Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
One of the highlights of this year’s Lincoln Center Festival, Monkey: Journey to the West, is based on a 16th-century Chinese folktale. But the production, conceived and directed by Chen Shi-Zheng, is totally contemporary. The multimedia spectacle features music composed by Blur’s Damon Albarn, and design and animation by Jamie Hewlett—the pair behind virtual band Gorillaz. Before or after the show, get to know the “cast” a little better, and take their tips for things to do in July in NYC.
