King and his band of merry monkeys
The Monkey King is a mythological figure in the Journey to

familiar characters such as Zhu Bajie: the half-man, half-pig or XuanZhang the
Buddish monk were instead astounded by the acrobatics combined with the visual
feast created by the 3D special effects used. The costumes and stage sets were
also especially vibrant in showcasing an array of colours, fluorescents and
even glow-in-the-dark scenes. The production brought the
audience on a journey through various places including a mythical
mountaintop as well as scenes set underwater and in a forest.
