PostHeaderIcon Lion King Musical at Hippodrome Performing Arts Center – Review

The Baltimore return of Disney’s The Lion King opens Friday, December 9 at 7:30 pm at the Hippodrome Theatre for a limited engagement of five weeks through Sunday, January 8, 2012. The show’s 14-week premiere engagement in 2005 played a sold-out run and box office smash at the Hippodrome Theatre.

Judging from all of the smiling children at a recent performance, this show is a wonderful family activity for the holiday season. The kids weren’t the only ones smiling, laughing and pointing, because “The Lion King” knows how to please a crowd.

This theatrical fact is loudly announced in the opening number, “Circle of Life,” in which the performers parade down the aisles and then claim the stage as their own. You plainly see the actors supporting the schematically constructed elephants that majestically march down the aisles.

The birds flying overhead are set in motion by people holding lofty poles; indeed, when one of the birds accidentally got snagged by the overhead balcony, the guy holding that pole earned a round of applause for finding a way to free it without injury to the puppet. And there are performers on stilts that facilitate their angular, forward motion as long-limbed giraffes.

One of the most ingenious design decisions was to create animal masks that do not cover the performers’ faces, but instead hover just above their heads. This presents us with both the animals’ fixed expressions and the more mobile human faces emulating those expressions.

The distinctive look of “The Lion King” is further enhanced by Donald Holder’s lighting design, which bathes Richard Hudson’s spare scenic designs in environmentally evocative splashes of pure color. You don’t doubt that the sun is shining when yellow light suffuses everything in sight.

As for the story, adult viewers will note that it’s a thematically blunt tale about a young male lion, Simba (Niles Fitch, alternating with Zavion J. Hill), that mourns the death of his lion king father, Mufasa (Dionne Randolph), and also contends with Mufasa’s villainous brother, Scar (J. Anthony Crane). Young Simba also takes a friendly interest in a young female lion, Nala (Kailah McFadden, alternating with Sade Phillip-Demorcy).

After spending years growing up on his own, the now-adult Simba (Jelani Remy) returns home to claim his throne. This means jousting with his nasty Uncle Scar, and also taking some time out for a courtship with the now-adult Nala (Syndee Winters).

Although only J. Anthony Crane’s hilariously mean performance as Scar qualifies as a standout performance among the principal roles, this is a vocally capable cast.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King Still Going Strong at Minskoff Theatre

Lion King Broadway is entertaining with the combination of songs, acting, dance, and spoken dialogue. Disney’s The Lion King is still going strong at Minskoff Theatre, New York NY.

Lion King Musical story is based on the Disney film, is undoubtedly familiar to many, the art that occurs in New York theaters may be foreign to some. An extensive amount of dexterity is incorporated into every aspect of the show.

While every actor in the production is undoubtedly talented, two particular actors who cannot be ignored are the young starlets who play Simba and his sidekick Nala, played by 11-year-old Abrey Omari Joseph and 10-year-old Khaail Toi Bryant, respectively.

In addition to having to complete the basic singing, dancing, memorizing, and acting requirements expected from Broadway leads, the starlets must learn to manage the responsibilities and risks of being in the spotlight, while juggling the developmental challenges associated with the preteen years. Because the song’s theme is the celebration of a new life, there are likely feelings of awe, hope and empathy pervading from audience members upon the chanting of the lyrics.

An element of the show that immediately appeals to viewers is the music written by Elton John and Tom Rice. In theatre, each musical piece is essential for helping the storyline progress in an engaging and original manner. The collaboration of other actors’ singing, acting and dancing and catchy African rhythms and their unforgettable exotic costumes — all made of an array of warm colors — contribute to the reasons why The Lion King won six Tony Awards in 1998.

The play’s opening includes a rainbow colored, face-painted Rafiki, a sunrise over an orange and purple lit background, giraffes represented by humans on long stilts, synchronized ballet dancing lions, antelopes, birds and zebras, and humans depicting grass rising from the stage.

Later, audience members are rendered speechless by large expressive puppets, mechanically controlled cheetahs and elephants, intricately designed masks for each lion character, and colorful costumes consisting of African styled beadwork, corsets, armor and cloth.

New York City is home to all forms of entertainment, but for anyone wanting to experience a great musical, The Lion King is a recommended investment.
