Cititour: The New York Guide to Events, Restaurants, Music, and Nightlife

The Lion King

The most successful of Disney's screen-to-stage adaptations benefits greatly from Julie Taymor's masterful staging, complete with bigger-than-life puppets who bring the African wildlife to life. The story of the young lion cub who must succeed his kingly father after his death ? unless his evil uncle Scar gets his way -- will appeal to all ages, as will the evocative score composed by Elton John and others.
