Variety’s 10/10 rating for The Lion King’s Broadway production says it all. “A new wave of cats just dominated Broadway. Simply said, Julie Taymor's staging of Disney's "The Lion King" is a masterpiece, a theatrical achievement unrivaled in its beauty, brains, and inventiveness. Leaping far beyond its celluloid inspiration, the stage version builds upon nearly every aspect of the hit 1994 animated movie, 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 appropriately 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 adored 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 fast to mention the musical’s “breathtaking beauty and scenic ingenuity.” The critic 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 close to perfect rating on Broadway World, the Lion King is definitely a favorite among Broadway critics.
