Everybody is quite familiar with the story of the endearing lion cub Young Simba, that embarks on his journey on the savannah. The animated Disney children's favorite is brought to life on stages internationally, recounting the saga of the animals that indeed dominate the land in Africa as they fight to survive.
This staging will showcase life-size lions, leopards, elephants, and giraffes. The actors, several of whom are employing puppets, control costumes that depict a broad range of animals. Certain of the performers walk beneath or alongside the puppets, while others entirely embody their characters.
The New York Times reveals that over the show's 2 hours and 40 minutes, there will be many occurrences of "stunning beauty and innovative set design that is realized by means of imaginative methods ranging from shadow puppetry to Bunraku." The critique extends to assert that undoubtedly, nowhere before on Broadway has there been a authentic stampede of wildebeests or a animated herd of gazelles skimming the veldt that have been portrayed with such jaw-dropping certainty.
Only the best live entertainment shows are presented at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. With outstanding acoustics and an interactive stage, the theater in California will provide the perfect environment for an remarkable Lion King adventure.
