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

Hard working cast -- but the crux of the conflict was played out in the second act - the trial. I believe the whole first act could have been scrubbed in order to focus in greater detail on the conflicts and drama of the trial.
For example, there is no first act in "12 Angry Men" where we see the trial of the boy -- only the jury room where the drama plays out.
The whole first act here is setting. It is not essential to the drama.
Very nice theater. Great location. We'll return for future productions.
Jolted in the night, San Francisco’s East Bay residents attempted to shield themselves from shattering windows as the sky blazed. 320 people were killed, 400 more were injured, and everything within a one mile radius was destroyed in a flash. 50 survivors were imprisoned for mutiny. If you have not heard about the worst home front military disaster in our history, you will now know why. If you had already known about it, you will find out that there is still much more to the story.
