The Lion King 

When: Feb. 16-March 20 2016
Price: $39-$109
It sounded crazy when Disney announced it would make The Lion King a musical in the mid-nineties. But more than $1 billion in grosses later, in this touring production at DPAC, director Julie Taymor has it figured out. Right from “The Circle of Life”—probably the best-staged opening number in Broadway history—you know you’re in for something beyond special. All the design elements, from Michael Curry’s puppets and masks to Garth Fagan’s dazzling choreography, blend together so seamlessly it’s like watching a 3-D movie (minus the glasses). But the stagecraft doesn’t take over the show; it helps tell a rich story. Believe the hype. —Jeffrey Kare
