With Japanese director Amon Miyamoto at the lead of Karate Kid the Musical, the show lays a greater emphasis on Asian cultural features. Meanwhile, the dance portions were choreographed by Filipino-Americans Keone and Mari Madrid, who used a mix of karate and hip-hop techniques. Daniel LaRusso is played by John Cardoza, and his mentor, Mr. Miyagi, is played by Jovanni Sy.

In the 1980s, Daniel Larusso (Ralph Macchio) is an adolescent boy who lives with his mother Lucille (Randee Heller) in Los Angeles. Daniel has been bullied at school by the Cobra Kai gang since he moved from New Jersey. After being confronted by Johnny Lawrence (William Zabka), leader of the Cobra Kai karate dojo, Daniel starts taking karate lessons from Miyagi (Pat Morita).

The show’s opening of Karate Kid the Musical at Kirkwood Performing Arts Center was well welcomed, and it is slated to run there until June 26. After then, the objective is to proceed to Broadway’s main stage. Amon Miyamoto is in charge, with choreographers Keone and Mari Madrid, scenic designer Derek McLane, costume designer Ayako Maeda, lighting designer Bradley King, sound designer Kai Harada, projection designer Peter Nigrini, orchestrator John Clancy, and music director Andrew Resnick providing arrangements.
