PostHeaderIcon The Lion King” made its official Utah debut Friday

After almost a decade of anticipation, Broadway’s “The Lion King” made its official Utah debut Friday night at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City.

Steve Boulay, president of production company NewSpace Entertainment, said getting the oversized show to Utah took a massive amount of restructuring, including knocking out parts of the wall at Capitol Theatre in order to house larger animals and using a chunk of the lobby to begin the show.

“While our theater market does well, our biggest difficulty is that we have relatively few seats in our theater, and for ‘The Lion King,’ it’s technically a little small,” Boulay said. “It’s gorgeous, but it took a real effort to accommodate the show.”

Luckily, Boulay said, the end result is a visually stunning show that fills every inch of the theater and creates an even more personalized experience for the Salt Lake audience.

“I think what people will see here is that it’s the biggest, coolest show that’s ever been at the Capitol Theatre,” Boulay said. “I think from the patrons’ perspective it will be bit overwhelming, but that’s what you want.”

Salt Lake City residents Aaron Coleman, Leah Coleman, 13, Lucy Coleman, 10, and Laura Sowell said they visit New York often to see Broadway shows and snagged tickets to “The Lion King” as soon as they could.

Although it was in high demand, “The Lion King” will only run for seven weeks instead of the standard 10 — a fact Boulay attributes to the strong arts scene in Salt Lake.

“The Lion King” will be showing at the Capitol Theatre in Salt Lake City through Sept. 26. Tickets can be purchased online, Buy now and save $20 on your next order over $250.

Casting has been announced for the Salt Lake City engagement of Disney’s The Lion King. Salt Lake City’s most eagerly awaited stage production ever will leap onto the Capitol Theatre stage from Wednesday, August 11 to Sunday, September 26, 2010. The press opening night is Friday, August 13 at 8:00 pm.

The engagement has already sold more than 83,000 tickets and generated more than $6.5 million at the box office. Even with all this success, there are still seats available with the best locations in the weeknight and Sunday performances during the last two weeks. Patrons are encouraged to contact the Capitol Theatre Box Office for availability at 801.355.5502.

On stage, Director Julie Taymor’s creative vision blends elements of African art and Broadway artisanship to depict anthropomorphic animal characters. The sardonic and deviously cunning “Scar” is played by J. Anthony Crane. Dionne Randolph is “Mufasa,” the great warrior and ruler of the Pridelands. Brenda Mhlongo is the wise baboon shaman “Rafiki.” Tony Freeman portrays the prim and proper hornbilled bird “Zazu.” Ben Lipitz is the carefree warthog “Pumbaa” and Nick Cordileone is the wisecracking meerkat “Timon.” Mufasa’s son, “Simba,” the lion prince born to be king, is played by Adam Jacobs and Syndee Winters is the loyal lioness “Nala.”

The three evil hyenas are played by Omari Tau (“Banzai”), Monica L. Patton (“Shenzi”) and Ben Roseberry (“Ed”). The role of “Young Simba” is alternated between Jerome Stephen, Jr. and Kolton Stewart and the role of “Young Nala” is alternated between Monique Lee and Madai Monica Williams.

The North American touring production of The Lion King has been seen by over 12.5 million theatergoers and grossed over $815 million to date. The tour is one of seven productions running worldwide, along with New York City, London, Hamburg, Paris, Tokyo and Las Vegas. Having already played 60 cities across North America, The Lion King continues to entertain audiences in new cities.

In Salt Lake City, The Lion King will play Tuesday through Thursday evenings at 7:30 pm; Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm; and Sunday at 6:30 pm with matinees at 2:00 pm on Saturday; Sunday at 1:00 pm; and Thursday, August 12 and Friday, September 24 at 2:00 pm. There will not be a 6:30pm performance on Sunday, September 26. There will be a special matinee performance on Wednesday, August 18 at 2:00pm to benefit The Actors Fund. Ticket prices start as low as $37.50. Premium Ticket Packages, which include prime seat locations, a commemorative souvenir program and an exclusive merchandise item, are also available.
