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.

Quotes & Highlights
- Watch a video about the show.
This show is a celebration of the First Lady of Television that has been crafted in the spirit of the amusing lectures Lucille Ball enjoyed giving throughout her career. The evening recreates the comic genius and the magic behind the “Queen of Comedy.”
Written by Suzanne LaRusch in collaboration with Ball's daughter, Lucie Arnaz, the play is a flashback to the 1970s. Ball was in her 60s and was traveling the country in a stage show that involved taking questions from the audience.
Augmented by home movies supplied by Lucie Arnaz, LaRusch takes audiences "behind the scenes" into Ball's personal life, revealing her approach to comedy and the heartbreak of her troubled marriage to Desi Arnaz.
LaRusch is a Hollywood-based actress-impressionist. While portraying Ball and other famous figures at Universal Studios Theme Park in the early 1990s, she quickly captured the attention of Ball's son and daughter, Lucie and Desi Arnaz Jr., who authorized LaRusch to portray their mother in other venues.
