DETROIT (WWJ) – The Detroit production of The Lion King is at the Detroit Opera House through Sunday, March 10th. And, if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, what are you waiting for?
The Lion King is an on-stage masterpiece: it had the audience in awe. The singing, the dancing, the acting — all simply spectacular — earning it a half-dozen 1998 Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Scenic Design (Richard Hudson), Best Costume Design (Julie Taymor), Best Lighting Design (Donald Holder), Best Choreography (Garth Fagan) and Best Direction of a Musical.
The Lion King has also earned more than 70 major arts awards including the 1998 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the 1999 Grammy® for Best Musical Show Album, the 1999 Evening Standard Award for Theatrical Event of the Year and the 1999 Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.
The Lion King is one of the most successful titles in entertainment history; and the stage production is now in its 16th year. It’s definitely a sight to be seen — and it’ll probably leave you in awe, too.
