The Lion King, long-time ruler of the Broadway and L.A. box offices, roars back into Hollywood as a limited-engagement treat for the holidays. Tony-winning director Julie Taymor made theatrical history when she transformed the beloved Disney movie into one of the most thrilling spectacles ever to grace the stage, with brilliant puppetry and majestic choreography and costumes. And as impressive as the visuals are, the score is equally thrilling, featuring Elton John and Tim Rice's Oscar-winning song "Can You Feel The Love Tonight?" and "Circle of Life." Indeed, the musical's first appearance on Broadway was more than an impressive debut: Newsweek called it "a landmark event in entertainment." The Pantages became home to the Pridelands for a long and successful run beginning in 2000, and now a new generation has the chance to get swept up in its magic.

I fell in love with this show all over again! Honestly though, this is a show that should be performed in a smaller venue due to its intimate nature so it's actually best to sit as close to the stage as possible or if you're lucky enough, even on stage! It just baffles me that it's playing at Pantages for less than a week! Given that, I suggest to you all to take advantage of this well written piece! The fresh music by Mr. Sheik even though set in the late 19th century, the voices, the intriguing choreo (subtle yet still profound), the issues that almost all teenagers can relate to, and simple stage sets and lighting effects will draw you all in. Moritz has always been my favorite character because of his awkward demeanor, powerful voice, and that hair! Everyone was able to deliver on opening night despite some minor flaws but I didn't mind it at all. Nonetheless, the energy in the house was infectious.
Spring Awakening is a true delight and a coming of age story you must experience.. once again.
The winner of 8 2007 Tony Awards - including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score - Spring Awakening has been called "the best musical of a generation" (NY Observer). Adapted from Frank Wedekind's play of the same name, with an acclaimed score by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater, book by Steven Sater and direction by Tony-winner Michael Mayer, Spring Awakening boldly depicts how a dozen young people make their way through the thrilling, complicated, confusing and mysterious time of their sexual awakening.
