The Lion King returned to Minneapolis MN, it will mark a return of the multibillion-dollar global juggernaut to the venue where it first roared to life in 1997. The Lion King Orpheum Theatre Performances started on January 11, 2012 and Continue through February 12, 2012.

The Elton John-Tim Rice musical also is a homecoming of sorts for two Twin Cities-connected cast members. J. Anthony Crane, who plays the antihero Scar in this classic drama about jealousy, murder and paternal love, spent many summers in the Twin Cities, where his parents were born and where his grandfather and great uncle ran a pharmacy and a movie theater.

“I’ll be visiting south Minneapolis to see where my family served the community all those years,” said Crane, who grew up in California with his doctor father and physical therapist mother and now lives in New York. “This is the place that influenced so many of our dreams.”

Nick Cordileone, who plays the wiseacre Timon, grew up in New Hope, Minneapolis and Brooklyn Park. His mother and stepfather still live in northeast Minneapolis and he expects a busload of relatives to come see the show.

“From being on Lake Minnetonka to watching the Vikings and the Twins, the Twin Cities formed the building blocks of my brain,” said Cordileone. “It is the place where I learned the joy and pain of being a long-suffering sports fan, something that I can use in my character.”

“Lion King” was built in Minneapolis by visionary director Julie Taymor. It combined her inventive visuals with bold puppetry, a propulsive pop score and Garth Fagan’s choreography to make the Disney movie come to spectacular life. After its sold-out Twin Cities premiere, the show transferred to Broadway in October 1997, where it won six Tonys and has remained a box-office champion.
