Gorilla theatre is much more rarely seen than guerilla theatre, which is also rare these days. I sincerely hope there will be a resurgence in both, perhaps simultaneously...

King Kong: The Musical, perhaps?

Girl Detective is right (any relation to the Guerrilla Girls?) . . . that's that typo you swear to yourself you'll never make. But there it is. In black and white. We'll leave it up for a while so that we may bask in the shame of our oversight . . . and correct it in the "official" 101 list.
