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.
