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. See it now before it ends on January 12. Learn More

In regard to the play, it was just OK. The lead actors who played Maria and Tony were mediocre at best. Too much Spanish for those of us who don't speak a word. I would say that 40% of the dialogue was in Spanish with no subtitles. How am I supposed to understand the play? In regard to Pantages, its a beautiful theater, however as always - a very unusual crowd attends. Its a much more wild card audience as compared to other LA venues such as Music Center. People that aren't used to live theater. Lastly in regard to Goldstar, I'm a premium member and was not impressed with the seat assignment given the fact I'm supposed to receive 'better' seats. I've attended two other Goldstar performances here NOT as a premium member and sat closer. So far its not worth the additional $.
Quotes & Highlights
- The new Broadway cast album of West Side Story recently won the 2010 Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album.
More than fifty years ago one musical changed theater forever. Now it's back on Broadway mesmerizing audiences once again. From the first note to the final breath, West Side Story soars as the greatest love story of all time. Tony Award-winning librettist Arthur Laurents’ Broadway direction will be recreated for the tour by David Saint, the Associate Director of Broadway. The original Jerome Robbins choreography is reproduced by Tony Award nominee Joey McKneely.
West Side Story remains as powerful, poignant and timely as ever. The Bernstein and Sondheim score is considered to be one of Broadway's finest and features such classics of the American musical theatre as "Something's Coming," "Tonight," "America," "I Feel Pretty" and "Somewhere."
