PostHeaderIcon Lion King at Benedum Center Review – The Entire Cast Was Top-Notch

Lion King musical is currently performing at Benedum Center in Pittsburgh PA through September 29, 2013.

The entire cast was top-notch, but L. Steve Taylor leads the pack as Lion King Mufasa – Reviewed BY Alan W. Petrucelli at Pittsburgh City Paper.

Sometimes the circle of life whimpers.

Sometimes it whispers.

When it comes to The Lion King, it roars.

The mammoth Disney musical — the story of lion cub Simba, who must avenge his father’s death — has returned to Pittsburgh. This PNC Broadway Across America touring production is a bit smaller-scale, but it’s still a mane event.

Much of the show’s success will always be attributed to Julie Taymor’s innovative and ingenious costume design. Strip away the skins and stripes, and this is a show about animals. The actors must appear as animal-like as possible — and each rhino and zebra and hyena and elephant and gazelle and cheetah and wildebeest costume carefully showcases both man and beast.

The entire cast was top-notch, but L. Steve Taylor leads the pack as Lion King Mufasa. Here too is where Taymor’s costume genius is at its best: Taylor’s mask can either rest on his forehead or cover his face. Resting, Mufasa is regal, dignified, powerful. Mask comes up, and the father of Simba is sensitive and vulnerable. Such subtle symbolism proves, especially on repeated viewings, the brilliance of the work.

Sets are simple, almost minimalist, but serve the action superbly.

There wasn’t one glitch to bitch about on opening night.
