PostHeaderIcon Alphonso Romero Jones II who plays Simba in ‘Lion King’ wins Young Artists Award

Alphonso Romero Jones II won the award for “Best Performance in Live Theater” for his portrayal of young Simba in Disney’s Broadway production of “The Lion King,”; in the 32nd Annual Young Artist Awards, held at the Empire Ballroom of the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City, Calif., last sunday night.

Jones bested other nominees Quinton Lopez of “Sick,” Adam Riegler of “The Addams Family,” and Marquis Kofi Rodriguez, who portrayed Simba in “The Lion King” before Jones got the role, at the awards ceremony, best described as the Oscars for young performers.

According to mom Kathy Jones, Alphonso was so excited he texted home right away.

“I got a text from him that said, ‘Mommy, I won. Yaaaaaaaaaaaay! Thank you Jesus,’” she said. “Then I texted him back, ‘Good job, baby!’”

Alphonso, a 12-year-old straight-A student in the sixth grade at P.J. Hill Elementary School, has been in the show since October 2009. His Broadway run will come to an end on Easter Sunday.

PostHeaderIcon The Lion King’s Young Simba is nominated for Young Artist Award

Alphonso Romero Jones II, Trenton native is nominated for Young Artist Award for his role as the young Simba in “The Lion King,” which is based on the Disney movie of the same name.
Alphonso Romero Jones II plays Simba The Lion King Broadway, has been nominated at the Young Performers Awards for "Best Performance in Live Theater."
Since October 2009, Jones has basked in Broadway’s glow as the star of “The Lion King.” The young star is up for “Best Performance in Live Theater” in the 32nd Annual Young Artist Awards. The ceremony will be held at the Empire Ballroom of the Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel in Studio City, Calif., on Sunday.

“I didn’t even know about it until my mom was searching on the internet and found out I was nominated,” said Jones, a 12-year-old sixth-grade student at P.J. Hill Elementary School in Trenton. “I have no words, it’s really amazing.”

Also nominated for the award are Quinton Lopez of “Sick”; Adam Riegler, “The Addams Family”; and Marquis Kofi Rodriguez, who portrayed Simba in “The Lion King” before Jones got the role.

The nominees at the ceremony, best described as an Oscar-type celebration of young performers, reads like a who’s who of popular film and television celebrities. Jones, who will rub shoulders with them all, is no small potato himself. During his Broadway run, which will conclude on Easter Sunday, he held court with singer Rhianna and film star Matt Damon.

Since Jones’ contract is coming to a conclusion due to his age, the young actor said he is excited to see what the future has in store for him.

“I want to do television, voiceovers and movies,” he said. “I would like to do animated voiceovers. That’s what I really want to do.”

Until then, he will maintain his schedule of splitting his time between train rides to New York City and his studies at P.J. Hill, where he maintains a straight-A average. “It’s hard,” he said. “But you got to do what you got to do if you want to do what you want.”

PostHeaderIcon Lion King Schenectady Review – The Most Dazzling Theatrical Experience

Lion King visiting Schenectady for almost 4-week run to the Proctors Theatre from February 22 and performing through March 20, 2011.

The long-awaited Proctors stop of Disney’s “The Lion King” tour offers all the spectacle one would expect, and then some. The opening sequence, in particular, is one of the most dazzling theatrical experiences imaginable.

The first half-hour, in fact, is one long suspended moment of awe as music, dance and stage magic come together to tell the story of the mighty King Mufasa.

Unfortunately, the rest of the show is built in reverse, making most of act two -despite its Shakespearian overtones of murder, treason and revenge -seem anti-climactic.

The acting -all done in broad Disney gestures – is generally strong, and so is the singing. The production values never flag. But, unlike the Bard, the journey is a little too simple to carry its own weight.

“It is,” a friend noted during intermission, “based on a cartoon.”

Given all that, it’s hard to imagine that anyone comes to “The Lion King” for the story (the fall and rise of a young lion king, Simba) alone. They come for, well, the spectacle.

Julie Taymor’s famous direction of the piece makes sure to provide a feast for the eye and the ear, with African aspects abundant in the music and Richard Hudson’s scenic design.

Taymor’s costuming in this show makes that of “Cats” look like line drawings. And her puppets and masks, created with Michael Curry, are simply wonderful. Often the two elements are combined, with actors wearing their outfits and operating them at the same time.

There is no effort to hide the fact that these animals are puppets. Sticks and joints and hand grips are visible. That makes things even more magical, because the imagination is engaged in finishing the beasts, rather than simply in figuring out how “they” did it.

This is also a tale best told in earth tones, such as that first half hour. When Taymor’s palette opens up and the big numbers (including “Can You Feel The Love Tonight”) start rolling in, the play loses some of its beauty and regal bearing.

The bright explosions of “I Just Can’t Wait To Be King” and “Hakuna Matata” delight the kids, but it’s “They Live In You” and “Shadowland” that will engage adults.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King Visiting Schenectady, about to Roar in Proctors

Lion King will be Visiting Schenectady’s Proctors Theatre from February 22, 2011.

CEO Philip Morris predicted in December that “The Lion King” would sell out Proctors in Schenectady NY —a first for a month-long run at the theater. Now, with less than two weeks to go before the curtain rises on the Disney spectacular, Morris is not backing away from his prediction even though about 5,000 seats are still available.

The Lion King opens its 32-show run in Proctors Theatre on February 22, 2011 and Perform thru March 20, 2011.

The show should be a good antidote to the winter doldrums for downtown restaurants and other businesses.

Still, the term “sellout” isn’t always what it seems in the theater world, which seems appropriate for an industry built on illusion.

Because of obstructions in the extravagant show, Proctors cannot sell every seat in the house. Some seats are also held back in case of a last-minute problem, like a seat breaking after a matinee.

All told, Morris said there are 80,100 seats for “Lion King” over the course of 32 shows (were it not for obstructions and reserves, 84,544 seats would be available).

Even if not all 80,100 seats get snapped up, Morris said it would still be considered a “sellout” in the theater industry if Proctors comes within a percentage point of the total.

Stage hands have been busy stripping the historic theater of hanging lights and screens to prepare for the show. Trucks carrying props and other equipment are expected to roll into town on Sunday, Feb. 12.

PostHeaderIcon Lion King sales a roaring success in Schenectady, NY

Lion King will be visiting Schenectady’s Proctors Theatre from Tuesday, February 22, 2011 and performing through Sunday, March 20, 2011 with 32 performances.

Tickets are selling so fast for The Lion King at Proctors in Schenectady that it is a safe bet every show will sell out, which would be a first for a monthlong-run production at the historic theater.

Proctors CEO Philip Morris said slightly more than 75 percent of the seats have been sold since tickets went on sale to the public Nov. 14.

Hundreds showed up the first day, with some camping out overnight to score seats. Prices range from $20 to $80, but can be as high as $130 for special premium packages.

Morris knew the show would be popular, but said the sales pace is faster than expected. “With two months left before the show I can’t imagine it not selling out,” Morris said.

Morris expects Proctors will turn a profit on “The Lion King” based on a complicated formula that includes individual and group ticket sales, fees and weekly rent.
