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. First and foremost, the contemporary music style was rearranged and given a genuine African music style. Meanwhile, the musical was one of the first to use an innovative approach in mask work, 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 awe-inspiring moments and scenic ingenuity, realized through techniques ranging from shadow puppetry to Bunraku. Certainly, nowhere before on Broadway has a stampede of wildebeests 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.”
A Playbill article credited Taymor’s innovation, with the help of artistic partner Michael Curry, for the show’s longevity. “Her vision for the Pridelands of Africa is what makes the long-running show a work of art, and that includes her work on costume, puppet, and mask design.”
