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

Wonderful play and cast. It was very interesting and moving - who knew the ethical debates behind some of the medical services that exist today. Very timely with the healthcare reforms that may be coming with the new administration. It sparked a great post-show discussion.

In the early 1960s, an anonymous committee of ordinary citizens in Seattle debated which kidney disease victims to choose for an experiment: something called kidney dialysis. If the experiment worked, a small number of people would live instead of surely die from kidney failure. But who among the selection pool lives? How will the committee choose? Playwright Christopher Meeks centers the action on one person, attorney Gabriel Hornstein, who desperately needs what the committee offers.
