The report states that on average, Broadway tours contribute to the local metropolitan area’s economy an economic impact 3.5 times the gross ticket sales.

“The return of The Lion King to Denver and its overwhelming success is a tribute to the entire Disney Theatrical team and the incredibly talented people involved in the creation of the show,” said President and COO of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Randy Weeks. “Additionally, it is a testament to the ongoing commitment of the Disney company maintaining their productions at the highest possible standards.

PostHeaderIcon The Lion King arrives at Place des Arts August 09, 2011

On the last Canadian stop of its latest North American tour, one of America’s most successful and longest-running musicals – The Lion King, adapted from the Disney animated movie of 1994 – makes its debut here Tuesday, August 09, 2011 for a four-week run at Salle Wilfrid Pelletier of Place des Arts.

Though slightly smaller than the 2000-2004 production seen by 2.9 million people over 1,560 performances at Toronto’s Princess of Wales Theatre, the touring musical is huge. In all, 110 people are involved: a cast of 48 (actors, dancers, singers and puppeteers), plus musicians, sound technicians, carpenters, electricians, wardrobe staff and more.

It’s the seventh-longest-running musical in Broadway history and one of only five Broadway and West End productions to play for 10 years or more. It’s won more than 70 theatrical awards around the globe, including six Tonys in 1998 (including best musical, as well as best direction, costumes, lighting, scenic design and choreography). And the original-cast recording snagged a Grammy in 1999 as best musical-show album.

Since its first staging in 1997, The Lion King has gone global. Translated into seven languages, it’s been seen by more than 54 million people in 14 countries on five continents and grossed more than $765 million. Besides the North American tour, it’s now being staged in six productions worldwide: on Broadway, in Las Vegas, in London’s West End, in Hamburg, Tokyo and Singapore. Starting in October, it will be seen in Madrid.

“Montrealers will love the show – it’s full of life,” said violinist Woonkuo Soon, who’s been the touring production’s concertmaster for the last five years. Originally from Singapore, the 42-year-old also plays in the Vermont Symphony Orchestra and lives part time in Montreal.

The Montreal cast of The Lion King includes Jelani Remy as Simba; Syndee Winters as Nala, his best friend and love interest; Nick Cordileone as Timon the meerkat and Ben Lipitz as his sidekick, Pumbaa the warthog; J. Anthony Crane as Scar; Dionne Randolph as King Mufasa; Buyi Zama as the wise baboon Rafiki; and Mark David Kaplan as Zazu the hornbill.

Lion King Musical Toronto

Lion King Musical Toronto


A bit of luster has come off the crown of The Lion King, which was one of the boldest, most visually inventive musicals in its day. This is the touring version of the Disney musical and not the resident production that roared at the Princess of Wales for several years in the early 2000s. So a few of director/designer Julie Taymor’s jaw-dropping stage effects have been scaled down.

But the sets and costumes continue to be the show’s chief draw, from the famous opening number onwards, as carefully designed puppet monkeys, birds and even a big ol’ lumbering elephant come down the theatre aisles, all to the rousing strains of Brenda Mhlongo’s baboon Rafiki and the hall-filling chorus.

The original songs themselves and the pacing in the long first act, however, are tougher to sit through. The story – about young cub Simba’s reclaiming of his birth right after the death of his father Mufasa – remains the same. There’s still lots of mythic weight in that journey about letting go of childish things and fulfilling one’s responsibilities.
