Lion King Birmingham Tickets

The Lion King was first staged in 1997 at the New Amsterdam Theatre. Critics that had long believed this play would be a disaster were compelled to praise its inspired production design and recreation of the iconic Disney animated movie. Since then, it has become a staple of Broadway and over two decades later, the play is still very much in demand. The play’s cast and creative team boast superstar names such as Hans Zimmer and Elton John. And it is directed by Julie Taymor. Do not miss out The Lion King’s 2018 visit to the BJCC Concert Hall. Lion King Birmingham tickets are on the market, and you should purchase them at first opportunity.

The Production

Even the director Julie Taymor agreed with the critics when they said that The Lion King is more naturally suited to the screen. She grappled with the opening scene of the film in particular, which is a stampede of animals of various sizes (from giraffes to parrots). Recreating this spectacle within the limited space of a stage was a challenge.

However, Taymor decided early on that she would use a combination of puppets and humans to tell the story. She began calling them “humanimals” and improvised the situation so that the humans are visible on stage as well. They are utilized in such a way that the humans channel moods and add dramatic tension and mood. Taymor has also added the audience wings and galleries to her theatrical space, adding birds to the higher levels within a theater. It immerses the viewers into the action on stage which adds to their experience.

The Tour

The Lion King has visited many different theaters across the globe. However, it is constantly finding new avenues to untap. As a result, in 2018, The Lion King is headed on a national tour, putting up short runs of the play in different theaters. Lion King Birmingham tickets are available as the play is set to be performed at the BJCC Concert Hall during March 2018. Do not miss out on this awe inspiring play!
