Kimberly Akimbo came to Broadway following an Off-Broadway world premiere at Atlantic Theater Company in 2021. The entire cast, led by Tony winner Clark in the title role, reprised their performances for the Broadway bow. Read the reviews for the Broadway transfer here.

The story follows Kimberly Levaco, a New Jersey teenager with a rare disorder that causes her to age four times faster than normal. Clark won her second Tony Award for her performance, one of the show's five wins at the 2023 ceremony. The production took Best Musical, with Bonnie Milligan winning Best Featured Actress in a Musical and Lindsay-Abaire for his book. Jeanine Tesori also won for her score, making her the most Tony awarded female composer in Broadway history (she previously won a Tony for Fun Home).
