The Lion King – The World’s #1 Musical Returns to Dallas

June 13, 2018 through July 7, 2018 at the Music Hall at Fair Park

 

This Classic Broadway adaptation of Disney’s animated movie has returned to Dallas!  After 20 years of performances it’s still one of the most creative productions ever made and remains one of the theatrical marvels of all time.  If you haven’t seen it before you must make the trek to Music Hall. If you’ve seen it before you must make the trek to Music Hall to see it again.

 

Tony Award Winner, The Lion King is one of the most popular productions of all time and has been seen by more than 95 million people around the world.  There’s a reason for that.  This is a musical that appeals to both kids and adults.  The Lion King has a universal theme that we can all relate to and yes, a lot of it is geared to the younger generation (this is Disney after all) but adults love it as well.  My 20 year son was in town from college and he surprised me when he agreed to go with me to see it.  He remembered that The Lion King was the first musical I took him too as a child and he was actually excited about seeing it again.  Not only can my son Jack quote every line from the movie because he saw it a million times as a child but he remembered the musical as being pretty great too.  This time though, he saw it through eyes of an adult and still enjoyed it as much as I did.  We marveled at the creative visual imagery, loved the familiar and catchy music (Grammy award winning actually), and appreciated the African culture depicted in the musical much more than we did before.  The message of the circle of life and the love of family still rang through for us as much as it did 20 years ago.

The performances are wonderful, the costumes are incredible, and the animals are delightful (except for the crazy hyenas – I never liked them and still don’t ha ha).   Take a date, a friend, or a child but go see The Lion King, have fun, and no worries for one magical night!
