The Disney musical epic, The Lion King, is a well-known story where everybody pretty much knows what the outcome would be. So, how did the people behind the musical create a musical that amassed over a million attendees worldwide? Director Julie Taymor reinvented the show by transforming it into something adults would appreciate. Foremost, the contemporary music style was reimagined and given a genuine African music style. Meanwhile, the musical was one of the first to use an innovative approach in puppetry, bringing the characters to life in mind-boggling ways. The immense creativity and ingenuity in portraying wild animals on the stage was nothing short of awe-inspiring. The New York Times wrote about the musical’s brilliance in presenting the world of The Lion King to the stage. “There will be plenty of instances of stunning visuals and scenic ingenuity, realized through techniques ranging from shadow puppetry to Bunraku. Certainly, nowhere before on Broadway has a herd of veldt-skimming gazelles been rendered with such captivating 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.”
A Playbill article credited Taymor’s innovation, with the help of artistic partner Michael Curry, for the show’s longevity. “Her interpretation for the Pridelands of Africa is what makes the long-running show a masterpiece, and that includes her work on wardrobe, puppet, and mask design.”
