“An entrancing thing of beauty. No show has ever achieved such fluid and dignified integration of form and line. It has proven, to date, impossible to replicate.”
“As its recent box-office triumph attests, The Lion King is an enduringly appealing example of Broadway at its best – commercial theater, yes, but theater elevated by its creators’ artistry. And chances are, wherever you are on the circle of life, it will speak to you. This impressive, impactful expression of director Julie Taymor’s artistry is not just a show for children, though its familiar story, extraordinary puppetry and colorful characters keep even the littlest ones mesmerized. No, The Lion King rules because it is a wondrous musical allegory that speaks to everyone.”
“A wondrous spectacle of imaginative puppetry, African rhythms, athletic dance and brilliant design. It grabs hold of your imagination from its very first moments.”
