Original creator Hajime Isayama himself commented, “I felt a musical was the perfect medium to express the story of Attack on Titan.”

When the play comes to New York City, it will still be in Japanese and subtitled for people who don’t know the language.

A pre-sale started today and will last until June 3.

Kodansha publishes the Attack on Titan manga in English and gave this description for it:

A century ago, the grotesque giants known as Titans appeared and consumed all but a few thousand people. The survivors took refuge behind gigantic walls. Today, the threat of the Titans is a distant memory, and a boy named Eren longs to explore the world beyond Wall Maria. But what started as a childish dream will become an all-too-real nightmare when the Titans return and humanity is once again on the brink of extinction…

Attack on Titan is the award-winning and New York Times bestselling series and the manga hit of the decade! Attack on Titan grew out of the anime TV series of the same name and has become a pop culture sensation.
