PostHeaderIcon Lion King to become the first show to gross more than $1 billion

The Lion King, the musical, is about to break a Broadway record — it’s expected to become the first show to gross more than $1 billion this week.

Based on the Disney movie, “The Lion King” opened on Broadway 16 years ago. But it’s not crossing the billion dollar threshold just because it’s been around it’s been so long. There are about four other musicals that have run longer.

David Rooney is a theater critic for The Hollywood Reporter. And I asked him, so how did “The Lion King” do it?

“The how is simple, it’s a good show,” says Rooney. “And it was an instant phenomenon.”

Rooney says unlike previous Disney efforts, the entertainment company didn’t just recreate the movie on the stage. Instead, they hired avant-garde director Julie Taymor, who used puppetry and other stage devices to capture the magic of theater.

And, he says, Disney has kept the marketing dollars flowing.

“A lot of shows that are doing that kind of business, think well we don’t need to spend major marketing money,” Rooney says.

The musical also has a built-in audience, says Blake Ross is the editor-in-chief of Playbill.

“’Lion King’ is a pretty good universal show for kids to go to,” Ross said.

And, she says, like a lot of recent animated movies by Disney, adults enjoy the the musical too.

The Lion King should still be on everyone’s must-see list. It’s a wonderfully delightful show for all ages – Reviewed By Cheryl Callon at TheaterJones.com.

The State Fair of Texas typically contains a wide variety of familiar and unusual animals, but the most unique ones come marching down the aisles of The Music Hall at Fair Park for Dallas Summer Musicals’ season closer The Lion King. Adapted from the 1994 Disney movie, the Broadway musical has won more than 70 global theatrical awards including the 1998 Tony Award for Best Musical. The show’s director, Julie Taymor, not only holds the distinction of being the first woman to win a Tony for Best Direction of a Musical, but she’s also the costume designer and mask/puppet co-designer.

It may seem interesting that a costume designer doubles as the director, but it’s almost a necessity for a production like this. Taymor and crew utilize a variety of costume and puppetry styles, and the result is one of the finest displays of theater magic around. The spectacle alone is worth a coveted ticket (as DSM quickly sells out a show like this), but rather than spoil the visual surprises, let’s focus on the other elements.

Like many film-to-stage musical adaptations, the story remains mostly unchanged and just adds a few details and extra musical numbers. Mufasa (L. Steven Taylor) and Sarabi (Tryphena Wade), king and queen of the Pridelands, welcome the birth of their son, Simba (Jordan A. Hall), who grows to be a feisty and curious lion cub. When young Simba finds himself in trouble with some hyenas in a forbidden area, the conniving intentions of his uncle Scar (Patrick R. Brown) are revealed. A terrible tragedy drives Simba away from his home, and he forms an unlikely friendship with the meerkat Timon (Nick Cordileone) and the warthog Pumbaa (Ben Lipitz). Some time later, an adult Simba (Dashaun Young) must decide between staying in his comfortable life and fulfilling his destiny as king.

Brown as Scar does well in his part, but it appears incomplete. His British demeanor handles Scar’s sarcasm brilliantly, but he only channels the whiny, narcissist side of the character. Nowhere in the production does he ever seem menacing.

While parts of the performance have a campy feel that are hard to avoid in a stage adaptation from a popular movie, The Lion King should still be on everyone’s must-see list. It’s a wonderfully delightful show for all ages, but it’s only in Dallas for two more weeks.

Lion King roars at State Fair – Reviewed By Martha Heimberg at DallasWeekly.com.

What a thrill to see the colorful feathered dancers, the huge elephant puppet and the exotic giraffes and zebras coming down the isles at the Music Hall at Fair Park. Drumming and chanting fill the air as they march onto the stage, followed by waves of applause and cheers. And that’s just the beginning of a spectacular and moving theater experience that clearly enchants kids and parents alike. The Lion King, the coming of age story of Simba the lion cub who becomes king of the jungle, is the perfect family show for the State Fair.

Dallas Summer Musicals has scheduled the national touring production’s for its third stop to run through October 20, in the great Dallas tradition of going to the fair and seeing a super show all at once. On Friday night, lots of excited kids were carrying fuzzy teddy bears and other stuff they won on the Midway, eager for more thrills and chills. And they got what they came for.

At the heart of the story is the relationship between the young cub and his powerful father Mufasa, played with dignity and strong emotion by L. Steven Taylor. The scenes between Mufasa and young Simba (bright-eyed Jordan Hall) are both wise and funny, especially when father cautions son on the difference in reckless bravado and real courage, a theme repeated throughout the show in song and dance.

Patrick R. Brown is a perfectly conniving Scar, Simba’s evil uncle who plots to take over the kingdom, and Dashaun Young is a handsome and athletic adult Simba, with a wonderful voice and a dancer’s grace. Nia Holloway is a muscled and beautiful Nala, and her playfully romantic scenes with Simba are fresh and unsentimental. I loved Pumbaa the Wart Hog, a hilarious Ben Lipitz, who manages to manipulate his heavy, complex costume and still land the jokes with his jungle partner Timon the Meerkat, a fast-talking and funny Nick Cordileone.
