Variety’s 10/10 rating for The Lion King’s Broadway production says it all. “A new generation of cats just dominated Broadway. Easily said, Julie Taymor's staging of Disney's "The Lion King" is a marvel, a theatrical achievement unrivaled in its beauty, brains, and inventiveness. Jumping far beyond its celluloid inspiration, the stage version improves 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 review also ensures that no matter what version of the musical you witness – be it Broadway or touring – the show certainly 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 swift to comment on the musical’s “breathtaking beauty and scenic ingenuity.” The critic noted, “Undoubtedly, 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 beloved among Broadway critics.
