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.

The theater is delightful, with great seats everywhere. This was their opening night. The set design was a little too simple. The acting was very good. The writing was ok. Some of it was funny and true to life about neurotic worriers and complainers, but it was way over the top and a little bizarre when they had some gay love scenes. Yes, it is a dark comedy that can cause some discomfort. I'd probably leave out the gay stuff, and introduce the lead actor's parents so we can understand who made this guy so great at worrying.
Quotes & Highlights
- "Hilariously intricate dialog very well executed by an exceptionally talented cast. Nothing to kvetch about in this production -- go see it!” --performingartslive.com
- "Steven Berkoff's abrasive, but hilariously on-target look at people who kvetch their way through life is being given a skillfully sharp production by SeaGlass Theatre ... kvetch is never easy to take — and a difficult one for the actors to pull off, but SeaGlass does it with sublime artistry, with laughs aplenty." —BroadwayWorld.com
- “The best show I’ve seen this year ... I will see it again, and I urge anyone who values a living theater to do the same. ... completely absorbing ... extraordinarily funny ... Berkoff and director Ian Vogt wield a handful of brutal devices to enhance dynamics already at work in this play, gears and wheels of love, honor, identity, faith, all whirling and pulling at one another until I expected to see arms and legs come off these actors' bodies." --Stage Happenings
- “A scaldingly funny masterpiece ... sidesplitting, remarkably compelling ... sensational ... a comic touchdown." —LA Stage Times
