PostHeaderIcon The Lion King’s New Simba – Adam Jacobs Interview

“I am proud of my Filipino heritage and I credit a lot of my success to my mixed ethnicity. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t have been able to book the role of Simba if I looked like a Ken doll!” – Adam Jacobs

The Lion King's New Simba - Adam Jacobs


Filipino-American Broadway star Adam Jacobs (“Les Miserables”, “Mamma Mia”) is currently essaying the coveted role of Simba in Disney Theatrical Productions’ North American touring production of ground-breaking, multi-award winning musical “The Lion King”. The show plays the Cadillac Palace Theatre in Chicago, IL until Saturday, November 27, 2010.

Upcoming tour engagements will include Durham, NC January 4 to 30, 2011; Providence, RI February 1 to 20, 2011; Schenectady, NY February 22 to March 20, 2011; Rochester, NY March 22 to April 17, 2011; Toronto, ON Canada April 19 to May 22, 2011; Dayton, OH June 14 to July 10, 2011; and Montreal, QC Canada August 9 to September 4, 2011.

New York University (NYU) Tisch School of the Arts alumnus Mr. Jacobs made his Broadway debut as the romantic lead Marius in Cameron Mackintosh’s Broadway revival of “Les Miserables” in 2006 to 2008. During the run at the Broadhurst Theatre, he had the opportunity to work with fellow Filipino Broadway stars Lea Salonga (“Miss Saigon”, “Flower Drum Song”), who replaced Daphne Rubin-Vega as Fantine, and Ali Ewoldt (“West Side Story”), who played Cosette. Former Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo took time out from her state visit to the United States in 2007 to see the world renowned musical, and personally congratulate Mr. Jacobs, Ms. Salonga and Ms. Ewoldt after the performance.

Born and raised in Half Moon Bay, California Mr. Jacobs’ Filipino blood came from his mother, whose father — originally from the province of Pangasinan in the Philippines — moved to the United States in 1965 with his wife and three children.

Mr. Jacobs’ inclination to the arts was apparent at a young age. He studied playing the piano at the San Francisco Conservatory where he would perform at his recitals from age five to 13. Portraying an additional role of the 13th apostle or the “apostle wannabe” (not in the original script) in a community theatre production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s “Jesus Christ Superstar” was created just for him at age 13.

He reveals to BroadwayWorld.com (Philippines) that he had been to “The Lion King” auditions several times for the past eight years.

PostHeaderIcon The Lion King Chicago Review

After five years, the Lion King returns to Chicago for only 7 weeks at the Cadillac Palace Theater. One of the biggest musical hits of the last 15 years, the Lion King has now played across the globe, and has only gotten better. Julie Taymor directs a powerful visual story of the African Pridelands and the Circle of Life. The story of the little Lion King Simba, and the journey his life takes after the death of his father King Mufasa and the actions of his treacherous Uncle Scar.

The performances are spectacular, with standouts Rafiki played by Brenda Mhlongo, and Nala played by Syndee Winters. Winters’ vocal range and pitch resonate perfectly in the Cadillac Palace. Another standout that seems to have grown in the last five years are the vocal and dance ensembles. There is much more depth in all of these performances than the last run here in Chicago.

As always the costuming, puppets, masks, makeup, and set are what is the most magical about this show. Such a genius adaptaion of an animal’s story, through human actors without obvious costuming, or tricks. The humanness remains enough to connect with what you’re seeing and feeling on stage. Not to mention the brilliant music of Elton John and Tim Rice is also made magical in this production.

Entertaining for people of all ages it’s great that this production has come back to Chicago. Definitely a must see before it leaves on November 27th. From here Lion King moves to Chrysler Hall, Norfolk VA.

PostHeaderIcon Disney’s Lion King National Tour in Chicago for two month stay

Lions not only rule the jungle, they also dominate Broadway and the theater landscape while making a killing at the box office.

After a five year wait, Disney Theatrical Productions and Broadway In Chicago has finally lured Disney’s “The Lion King” back to Chicago.

The magical musical menagerie is playing Cadillac Palace Theatre now through Nov. 27.

The show’s 39-week premiere engagement in 2003 and 13-week return engagement in 2005 both played sold-out runs on this same stage.

“I’ll always remember the first time ‘Lion King’ played here and we set up a 24-hour ticket sale to keep up with the demand,” said Broadway in Chicago Vice President Eileen LaCario.

“This is a musical that’s indelible in my mind during these 10 years with Broadway in Chicago. Like everyone else, I was waiting with great anticipation for ‘Lion King’ to get here and now it’s great to have it back.”

Director Julie Taymor’s creative vision blends elements of African art and Broadway artisanship to depict anthropomorphic animal characters.

For this run, the sardonic and deviously cunning “Scar” is played by J. Anthony Crane and Dionne Randolph is “Mufasa,” the great warrior and ruler of the Pridelands.

Show Schedule: Now through Nov. 27 with performances Wednesday and Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday evenings at 8 p.m., Sunday evening at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2 p.m., and Sunday matinees at 1 p.m. No performance on Nov. 25 for Thanksgiving.
