Won 6 Tony Awards including Best Musical in 1997. It is one of the most popular musicals on Broadway, since it opened on November 13, 1997. The story is based on the Disney’s animation movie with the same title. The Broadway version of Lion King took completely different approach. Everything about this show, including direction, music, costumes and scenery are all new except the story. The dance is elegant, but also dynamic just like modern ballet. And songs, music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, are unforgettable. This is a great family musical of which entertainment and art form are mixed perfectly. The success of the Broadway’s Lion King is largely contributed by Julie Taymore, who shows great talent by being a director, costume designer, and most of all magnificent mask designe.
