PostHeaderIcon The Lion King Roars Back into San Francisco – Review

Disney’s hit musical “The Lion King” roars back into San Francisco and is currently performing at Orpheum Theatre – San Francisco through the holiday season January 13, 2013. Karen D’Souza reviewed the musical at MercuryNews.com. Here is the review:

“Lion King” is buoyed by its dazzling use of puppetry, which ranges from Japanese Bunraku puppets to Indonesian shadow puppets. Little Simba flees his home, the Pridelands, and his lifelong chum Nala (Kailah McFadden and Sade Phillip-Demorcy share the role), for the wilds of the jungle where he befriends a smart aleck meerkat Timon (Nick Cordileone) and a flatulent warthog Pumbaa (Ben Lipitz).

Amid the chaos of the savanna, Simba comes of age (Jelani Remy plays Simba as a young man). Emboldened by the now formidable huntress Nala (Syndee Winters), he resolves to right the wrongs committed by his uncle, who has destroyed the balance of nature in this fragile ecosystem. Under the watchful eye of the shaman baboon Rafiki (Buyi Zama), Simba fights for his rightful place in the pride.

If the narrative arc seems a little thin, the African chants and rhythms are irresistible (they definitely upstage the Elton John and Tim Rice numbers), Garth Fagan’s choreography infectious and the story suitably heartwarming. Certainly, the show’s environmental messages are nicely woven together with its meditation on the cycle of life so that even the littlest audience member can follow the themes.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King Dazzles with Pride, Joy – Musical at Orpheum Theatre Review

Lion King is currently performing at Orpheum Theatre – San Francisco stage and continue through Sunday, January 13, 2013. SF Examiner Arts Editor Leslie Katz reviewed the musical as ‘Lion King’ dazzles with pride, joy. Here is the review:

It’s easy to understand why the show, at the Orpheum Theatre through Jan. 13, is the biggest Broadway money-maker of all time.

“The Lion King” isn’t your basic musical: It’s a gigantic, fluid piece of visual art for kids and adults. It also happens to have catchy songs and a touching and funny book based on a huge hit animated family film.

Director-puppet maker-costume designer and co-lyricist Julie Taymor is a genius. Her extraordinary reinvention of the Disney movie about the lion cub Simba’s tumultuous coming of age exemplifies the unthinkable heights to which the creative mind can soar.

From the first strains of Rafiki’s (Buyi Zama) opening song “Circle of Life.” and the grand entrance of the most amazing ever life-sized puppet animals – an elephant, rhino, giraffes, antelopes, a cheetah – the audience is mesmerized.

These aren’t big plush toys. Taymor and puppet design partner Michael Curry’s creations are both naturalistic and fantastic. Ingeniously composed using carefully calibrated masks and fabric, they complement, rather than cover up, the actors. At least half the fun of the show is trying to figure out how the performers manipulate their complex outerwear.

The dancers’ costumes are equally amazing. Wearing headdresses of squares of sprouting blades, they set the stage in African grasslands in an opening scene.

With a book attributed to Roger Allers (movie co-director) and Irene Mecchi (screenplay co-writer), there are nods to the cartoon: Wisecracking meerkat Timon (Nick Cordileone) and sidekick warthog Pumbaa (Ben Lipitz), who befriend Simba (Jelani Remy) after he’s banished from his home, have a cute shtick and clearly resemble their movie counterparts.

But “The Lion King’s” unending wonder is in its ingenuity, from an amazingly crafted, massive stampede in which Simba’s noble father Mufasa (Dionna Randolph) dies, all the way down to a teeny, scurrying shadow puppet mouse.

The score, including the ballad “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” the feel-good “Hakuna Matata” and African-flavored act-openers “Circle of Life” and “One by One,” sounds terrific sung by the powerfully voiced cast.
