‘‘The breathtakingly staged Broadway adaptation of Disney's king of the cartoon jungle is an instant theater classic.’’ Review by Chris Willman from Entertainment Weekly

‘‘A jaw-dropping magnificent spectacle. The show and the playhouse are enchanting. The unprecedented production is worth every penny." Review by Linda Winer from Newsday

‘‘Awe-inspiring! Broadway theater is alive again. [Julie] Taymor's imaginative ideas seem limitless. it's a gorgeous, gasp-inducing spectacle. Most important - against all odds - it has innocence. The show appeals to our primal, childlike excitement in the power of theater to make us see things afresh.’’ Review by Richard Zoglin from Time Magazine

‘‘Julie Taymor's staging of Disney's The Lion King is a marvel, a theatrical achievement unrivaled in its beauty, brains and ingenuity. Leaping far beyond its celluloid inspiration, the stage version improves upon nearly every aspect of the hit 1994 animated film, from visual artistry and storytelling to Lebo M's score and the newly African-ized pop songs of Elton John and Tim Rice.’’ Review by Greg Evans from Variety
