PostHeaderIcon ‘Lion King’ child Star Battling Cancer – Shannon Tavarez

Child star Shannon Tavarez, who played young Nala in the Broadway version of The Lion King, is battling cancer at the age of 11.

The young actress was diagnosed with Acute Leukaemia in April this year. Tavarez was performing when the symptoms first hit, according to theatre news website BroadwayWorld.

“When I found out, it hit me really hard, like someone was throwing a ball at me. It was shocking and I thought, why me?” said Tavarez.

She is now a patient at Schneider Children’s Hospital in Long Island, where she receives daily chemotherapy treatments while awaiting a bone marrow transplant.

Tavarez had a promising Broadway career and was performing four shows a week in The Lion King, until she was diagnosed with the deadly disease.

The cast also includes Tshidi Manye as the wise baboon shaman Rafiki and Dashaun Young as Mufasa’s son, Simba, the lion prince born to be king. James Brown-ORLEANS (Banzai), Bonita J.

On stage, Director Julie Taymor’s creative vision blends elements of African art and Broadway artisanship to depict anthropomorphic animal characters.

PostHeaderIcon Hurry up for Lion King Tickets at Capitol Theatre

If you were dreaming about “Lion King” seats but were too scared to brave the rush for tickets that always come just after they go on sale, Book your Lion King Tickets Today and Receive 15% Off Orders Over $200! Code BWAYSAVE15 through 6.15.10 .

Tickets are still on sale for the touring Broadway production of “The Lion King” that will be coming to Salt Lake’s Capitol Theatre August 11 through September 26. The cheapest tickets hover around the $74.00 range (not including fees) and are easier to get the later you’re willing to go in the run. The more expensive seats will run you about $135.00.

Of course, it’s also quite reasonable to wonder why all of the seats didn’t get sold out. Part of it is the show’s immensely long run, which they probably did pre-emptively due to the success of “Wicked” early last year. Several said that it compared poorly to previous productions of “The Lion King,” including some the reviewers had seen on tour, as well as specific mentions of the poor singing.

Seats still available for Lion King at Capitol Theatre.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King A Roaring Broadway Success

Remember the naughty little Simba and his friends Timon and Pumbaa? Well, well, who can forget them! They have managed to steal the hearts of kids as well as adults by their mischievous ways.

The “Lion King” is here once again! This typical Disney film, depicting the tale of strong bonds between friends and family, has many awards to its credit, including six Tony Awards. This adorable story of a lion cub was released first in 1977 in Minneapolis. After tasting a huge success at the box office, it shifted to Broadway in a few months time. For the last ten years, “Lion King” has been running successfully in the world of Broadway! At present, it’s being shown at Minskoff Theater.

The story of “Lion King” is based in Africa. It’s all about Simba, a cute and extremely mischievous lion cub, who is the successor of the king’s throne after his father, King Mufasa. Simba has a best friend Nala, who is equally mischievous.

“Lion King” is a unique Broadway production. The major attraction is the clever usage of animal masks by the actors on the stage. Besides this, the show makers have used African masks as well as puppets to create a visual masterpiece, as acclaimed by some critics. “Lion King” has famous numbers like “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”,
“I Just Can’t Wait To Be King”, and the evergreen “Hakuna Matata”.

As you watch the show, you can actually feel emotions erupt within you as the story slowly unfolds. You feel hatred towards Scar when he conspires against Mufasa; you feel sympathy with Simba when he leaves his kingdom; you feel joy and happiness when Simba makes new friends; and you feel enthusiastic and eager to see action when he goes back to get his kingdom. Truly a touching story!

No wonder it is running house full! Don’t expect to get tickets on the spot. Book in advance. Look here for Lion King tickets for weekends and Sundays as well with discounted price. You might have a better luck there. Happy viewing Lion King Broadway!

PostHeaderIcon Weekly Schedule of Current Broadway Shows

While most of Broadway runs on a traditional Tuesday through Sunday schedule – with Sunday and Monday evenings off – a handful of productions diverge slightly and offer performances at non-traditional times. This affords potential theatregoers a number of options should they wish to take in a Broadway show on a night when much of the Great White Way is “dark.”

Additionally, some productions offer one or more 7 PM evening performances to allow an earlier night out for family audiences and other early birds.

Here is a rundown of the current Broadway offerings and their weekly show times. This information is accurate at press time and will be updated periodically as changes occur.

Shows with frequently-alternating or repertory schedules (such as In the Heights and Mamma Mia!) have been omitted from this page.
