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.

Just didn't like it. Boring and terrible language. Had to stay until the end as there was no intermission.
Quotes & Highlights
- "[Edlow is a] gifted scripter." --Daily Variety
- "Edlow's dialogue bounces between razor-sharp and languid, creating a weird uneasiness... a female response to LaBute." --LA Weekly
- "Edlow has a knack for writing, and this script is impeccably humorous. She captures perfect moments of insanity in a woman’s life while somehow remaining honest and lovable." --Campus Circle
- "Edlow’s sharp tongue and sapient wit are evident … she is clearly fierce competition in the comedy-writing world." -- Examiner.com
- “As sweet as meringue” – EyeSpy LA
- “Even in the most slashing, vicious, offensive, foul-mouthed attacks, the audience laughs … Laughter and cupcakes. What could be sweeter than that?”--Socal.com
Wickedly funny, incisive and hip, Fielding Edlow's newest comedy chronicles one woman's epic battle with frosty cupcakes (not vegan), breaking up with Daddy, and learning to stand the sound of her own heartbeat. Paul Stein directs.
"I'm interested in developing the idea of a character with an Electra complex," explains Edlow, whose previous plays include NYC Fringe Festival 'Best of Fringe' winner Coke-Free J.A.P. and The Something-Nothing ("GO!" - LA Weekly).
"I feel like so much has been done with the Oedipal complex. In Sugar Daddy, my character regales the audience with tales from the Daddy crypt and gold medal Olympic binging."
Fielding Edlow, a native New Yorker, has had her plays produced/workshopped in New York and Los Angeles with Naked Angels, NY Stage & Film, PSNBC, Dixon Place, The Culture Project, NY Fringe Festival and Home for Contemporary Arts. Her one-woman show, Coke-Free J.A.P., was performed in the NYC Fringe Festival and received the “Best of Fringe" award from Back Stage. It subsequently premiered in L.A, where it had a four-month, sold-out run at the McCadden Theatre with director Craig Carlisle. Her play Admissions was a semi-finalist in Reverie Productions' 2008 Next Generation Playwriting Contest and was workshopped at NY Stage & Film, Naked Angels, and with Circle X Theatre Company. The Something-Nothing was produced by the Mineral Theatre Co. in Los Angeles last season to critical acclaim.
Paul Stein's recent directing credits include: W. Kamau Bell’s The Bell Curve: Ending Racism in an Hour at PS 122 in New York City; Antonio Sacre’s My Penis: In and Out of Trouble at Theatre Asylum in Hollywood; and Carla Snowden’s Girl Overboard at both the Hollywood Fringe and Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, Texas. Currently, Paul holds the position of Artistic Director of the Comedy Central Stage, a development theater sponsored by the network.
