Variety’s 10/10 rating for The Lion King’s Broadway production says it all. “A new generation of cats just took over Broadway. Simply said, Julie Taymor's staging of Disney's "The Lion King" is a wonder, a theatrical achievement unrivaled in its beauty, brains, and address. Leaping far beyond its celluloid inspiration, the stage version advances upon nearly every aspect of the hit 1994 animated film, from eye-catching 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 appreciated, “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 comment on 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 beloved among Broadway critics. So, it would be unthinkable if you missed The Lion King musical at the Minskoff Theatre this winter!
