PostHeaderIcon Lion King Musical at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre – Review

Lion King is currently performing on tour in Orlando FL at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre. The show opens April 19 at 8 p.m. and will run for four weeks through May 13.

Lion King musical plays at The Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m.; Sunday evenings at 6:30 p.m.; Saturday matinees at 2 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 1 p.m. There will be a 2:00pm matinee performance on Thursday, May 10 and there will not be a 6:30pm performance on Sunday, May 13.

“We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to bring The Lion King back to Orlando,” said Ron Legler, President and CEO of Florida Theatrical Association. “Thus far sales have exceeded our expectations, but there are still great seats available.”

Here is the review by Matthew J. Palm, Orlando Sentinel Theater Critic:

The touring version, at the Bob Carr Performing Arts Centre for nearly a month, certainly delivers all the goods that have made the story of Simba the lion a raging success.

The animated Disney film, on which the musical is based, handled the mix of grownup themes and kiddie fare with aplomb; the stage version isn’t always as successful. It can’t help but be jarring when against a backdrop of exquisitely designed costumes, flowing dance moves and that hypnotic African chanting to suddenly have a squawking bird crack a one-liner. (Though it must be pointed out that Mark David Kaplan, as the bird Zazu, expertly squawks and sputters like a classic Vaudevillian ham.)

The other principal comic players — Nick Cordileone and Adam Kozlowski as Timon and Pumbaa, the trio portraying hyenas — embody the personas of their animated predecessors.

It’s up to the dramatic actors to add some flesh and blood to the cartoon characters, and they succeed admirably.

J. Anthony Crane’s Scar is appropriately melodramatic and imposing, though his growly shouting buries some of Scar’s jokier lines and he talk-sings too much of his signature “Be Prepared,” giving the unsettling melody short shrift.

Dionne Randolph is a less grave, more energetic Mufasa than some — which makes his worries over parenting Simba and untimely death more poignant. Jelani Remi and Syndee Winters as adult Simba and his gal Nala also have youthful singing voices, which enhance their characterizations.

Perhaps the younger sounds help bring a freshness to the show, which avoids feeling mechanical even after all these years. Certainly adding to the exuberance factor: Adante Power, whose Young Simba is a whirlwind of personality with a dynamite grin.

And irrepressible Buyi Zama manages the tricky feat of being both grave and hysterical simultaneously as wise old Rafiki.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King coming to Fox Cities Performing Arts Center April 09, 2013

The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center is celebrating its 10th anniversary season with a lineup that showcases some past successes, the touring industry’s latest big-name shows and new community collaborations.

The Lion King Musical will be part of the 2012-13 Fox Cities Performing Arts Center lineup, is scheduled for April 9 to May 5, 2013 in Appleton WI.

“We wanted to make sure that obviously we were reflecting on some great memorable moments that have really brought the performing arts center audiences together and built that loyalty that we’re so lucky to have from our community,” said Maria Van Laanen, the PAC’s executive vice president. “But then also, we wanted to continue to challenge them and continue to excite them because the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center’s audiences have been so supportive of seeing different types of art forms from different areas. That’s what you’ll see when you look at this 10th anniversary season.”

Disney’s “The Lion King,” which runs April 9 to May 5, 2013, played at the PAC in 2007. That was a “pinnacle moment” for the center, Van Laanen said.

“It was the longest-running show we had brought to the community up to that point,” she said. “This show, it changed the landscape on Broadway and I think it really was the sign that the Performing Arts Center had truly arrived in the touring industry.”

“We are one of very few cities that are presenting this on its first year of its national tour,” Van Laanen said. “Like ‘The Lion King’ did, this play caused such a ripple on Broadway because it is some of the most powerful storytelling that has been seen on Broadway in a very long time. And the way they tell this story, which takes place in World War I, through the eyes of the horse, is just magnificent. Because you’re seeing it through Joey’s eyes, you get a glimpse at all sides of the war.”

Lion King musical will run from April 09, 2013 and continue through May 05, 2013 at Fox Cities PAC. Buy Lion King Appleton WI Tickets online. Get $10 OFF on Lion King Fox Cities Performing Arts Center Tickets Orders of $350 or more by using code #SpringSavings at Checkout.

PostHeaderIcon The Lion King Musical Preview – Premiering Feb. 15 at the Landmark Theater

The nation Tour of The Lion King premiering Feb. 15 at the Landmark Theater. Lion King will play at Landmark Theater through March 11, 2012 in Richmond, VA.

Lion King Musical Preview Video:

“I defy anyone to watch the opening scene and not get goose bumps,” said Michael Reilly, who has spent nine years with versions of “The Lion King” and is the puppet supervisor for the national tour. If anyone should be inured to the musical’s alchemy, it’s Reilly: As the guy in charge of maintenance on the show’s 230 or so puppets, he sculpts, paints, troubleshoots electric and mechanical systems, and more.

Zazu, a bird puppet, has gears so tiny that Reilly and his two assistants use miniature tools to work on the costume. The attributes of Scar, a lion character, involve microcircuitry. And no matter how complex and delicate, the masks and puppets are heavily used. “They’re like museum pieces that are being used as jackhammers,” Reilly said, speaking by phone from Minneapolis, where “The Lion King” was performing in mid-January.

The wear and tear is unavoidable because masks and puppets are pivotal to the aesthetics of the 1997 Broadway musical directed by theatrical innovator Julie Taymor.

“We sort of dabbled with a new approach to theater that allowed the characters to be done in a very magical way” without diminishing “the importance of the human actor,” said Michael Curry, who collaborated with Taymor on the show’s mask and puppet designs.

“The Lion King” also has been a milestone event for puppetry, said Vincent Anthony, executive director of the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta. He points out that “The Lion King” proved to producers that live puppetry could be successful on a big scale, opening the doors for subsequent Broadway shows such as “Avenue Q” and “War Horse.”

PostHeaderIcon The Lion King Box Office Record at Hippodrome Performing Arts Center

The Lion King grossed $1.5 million at the Hippodrome Theatre. The one-week haul was the most for a Broadway production at the Hippodrome, officials said in a press release. So far, “The Lion King” has grossed $5.3 million with a week remaining in its engagement in Baltimore. The show runs through January 8, 2012.

The show is estimated to generate a $21 million economic impact in the city, through travel, hotel, restaurant and parking spending by audience members and production staff. That is based on a rule of thumb established by the Touring Broadway League that shows’ economic impact is 3.5 times gross ticket sales.

Success of Broadway shows and other touring productions are key in the Hippodrome’s business model. The theater had faced challenges attracting shows because a shortcut in the $63 million renovation of the theater led to massive utility bills that made it too expensive a stop for many productions.
