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

Truly loved it! Annie is stellar. The mannerisms, the accent, the drama. She inhabits the character. She made us laugh and wax nostalgic and think. Supporting cast of "the children" and "the handyman" were equally up to the task. We (four friends and I) rate this as a truly amazing experience that we were privileged to enjoy together. And special "props" to the set designer ... Every last detail of tha Queens kitchen and bedroom set was real and resonated. We'd see it again in a hearbeat ... And maybe will. Don't miss it.

- "Shoenman's play is powered by an emotional authenticity both funny and wrenching... At the end of this fast-moving 80 minutes, you'll feel you've been through all the stages of grief. And emerge, moved, on the side of life." --Los Angeles Times (Critic's Choice)
