Creator Hajime Isayama has expressed his support for the musical, saying, “When I saw the production in Tokyo, I was floored by how powerful it was. I felt that a musical was the perfect medium to express the story of Attack on Titan. The action and the songs by the performers have created a new Attack on Titan that is different from the manga or the anime series. They have created such an amazing show, and I cannot wait for everyone to see it in New York. Please look forward to the opening.”

The anime ended in 2023 with a four-part finale, but the series continues to live on in musical form. Attack on Titan: The Musical has a 1-hour and 50-minute runtime, and there will be a merchandise store at the theatre.

Tickets will go on sale online on 3 June, with a presale currently running for Crunchyroll, Kodansha and Kinokuniya members.
