Variety’s 10/10 rating for The Lion King’s Broadway production says it all. “A new wave of cats just dominated Broadway. Effortlessly said, Julie Taymor's staging of Disney's "The Lion King" is a masterpiece, a theatrical achievement unmatched in its beauty, brains, and address. Soaring far beyond its celluloid inspiration, the stage version builds upon nearly every aspect of the hit 1994 animated film, from visual artistry and storytelling to Lebo M's score and the newly Africanized pop songs of Elton John and Tim Rice.”
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly correctly called this musical “King of the Hill.” The critique also ensures that no matter what version of the musical you experience – be it Broadway or touring – the show definitely deserves to be cherished and enjoyed, “Amazing vision overrides any quibbles. The Lion King can make you fall in love with theater, no matter what theater it's in.”
Lastly, the New York Times was quick to mention the musical’s “breathtaking beauty and scenic ingenuity.” The reviewer noted, “Without a doubt, nowhere before on Broadway has a stampede of wildebeests or a herd of veldt-skimming gazelles been rendered with such eye-popping conviction. But in many ways, Ms. Taymor's vision, which is largely rooted in ritual forms of theater from Asia and Africa, collides with that of Disney, where visual spectacle is harnessed in the service of heartwarming storytelling.”
With an almost perfect rating on Broadway World, the Lion King is certainly a preferred among Broadway critics. So, it would be absurd if you missed The Lion King musical at the Minskoff Theatre this fall!
