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

It was only 37 minutes long. Although it had a few funny moments and even a little bit of insight, it was only average in terms of performances by the two actors and the staging. They flubbed lines and seemed a little lost at times. Not really worth the effort of going there (and I live only minutes from the theatre) for such a short, mediocre play.

I really like this little theatre, but this is the first play I've seen there that really knocked my socks off. The acting was superb! The set was wonderfully nostalgic and the script totally believable. You won't be disappointed.
Nothing is impossible in the heart of an artist or for those who dare to dream…BIG. When a man’s passion pushes him to venture into unfamiliar commitments, anything can happen. When he falls for a beautiful girl who seems to miss some of the splendor of life’s bigger possibilities, there is always so much to be explored. The fun of this story is how it makes audiences feel!
