Transcript of The Lion King

The Lion King The Lion King show debuted July 8, 1997 at the Orpheum Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota. But it premiered on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theater on October 15, 1997. The critics raved about it:
‘‘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.’’- Richard Zoglin from Time Magazine on
November 24, 1997
‘‘A jaw-dropping magnificent spectacle. The show and the playhouse are enchanting. The unprecedented production is worth every penny. If this is Disney's idea of a theme park, we are delighted to report that the theme is quality.’’-Linda Winer from Newsday on November 14, 1997 The Opening Show Aaliyah Lantigua
Dance 2 The Plot My Favorite scene & Start of Conflict "Idiots! There will be a king! I will be king!" - Scar There is one other minor symbolic archetype known as duality. Duality is a common archetype in many literary works. Duality is when two opposing forces are emphasized in a story. In this case, there is duality because of the good vs. evil element of the story. Another example is the strong against the weak. Duality Websites:

YouTube 1900 1997 1953 awsraserg I couldn't find a clip of the song on Broadway but it's still good. This scene is where Scar is talking about how he's going to get rid of his brother and nephew to become king. Simba, a young lion is told by his father and everyone else that he is the next heir to the throne. This is where the conflict begins his Uncle Scar is placed behind Simba and he doesn' like this idea. So as sneaky, deceitful Scar he comes up with a plan to kill Mufasa and his nephew. He uses the hyenas to cause a stampede through the canyon where Mufasa and Simba are and personally ensures Mufasa falls to his death. Simba survives so Scar implies that the stampede was Simba's fault and that the other animals of the kingdom would see it that way and will blame him. Simba flees the Pride Lands never to return and is found by his new best friends Timon and Pumbaa. While Timon and Pumbaa are telling Simba all about Hakuna Matata. In the Broadway play this is where Simba turns from a boy into a man.
Back at Pride Rock with Scar on the throne everything has gone wrong. There is scarcely any food for the lions and lionesses to eat and the water hole has dried up. Nala, Simba's childhood friend and betrothed went on a hunt beyond the Pride Lands and stumbles upon Simba's new home. Astonished to find him alive, she begs him to return to the Pride Lands, where Scar has reigned as King for years, and ruined everything. All of the animals will starve if Simba does not return. Simba eventually agrees to fight for his kingdom. Simba battles Scar, and learns the truth behind his father's death which was all Scar's fault, not his own. Simba wins the battle and, in the end he has his own child, continuing the circle of life. 2 Historical Events 1. On October 15, 1997 the same day The Lion King debuted on Broadway the NY jury awarded boxer Mitch Green $45,000 in civil lawsuit against Mike Tyson, for a street brawl in 1988.

2. Also on that same day the U.S. launched a nuclear powered Cassini to Saturn. Weather & Government I can't say what the weather was like for the specific day of October 15, 1997 but for the month of October its average high was 65°F and the average low was 50°F.
On the other hand in the government during this time we had President Bill Clinton whose term was 1993-1997, and his second term was 1997-2001.
Another thing that happened dealing with the government was launching Cassini–Huygens. Which is a flagship-class NASA-ESA-ASI spacecraft sent to Saturn. It has studied the planet and its many natural satellites since arriving there in 2004, also observing Jupiter, the Heliosphere, and testing the theory of relativity. It launched on October 15, 1997 on a Titan IVB/Centaur and entered into orbit around Saturn on July 1, 2004, after an interplanetary voyage which included flybys of Earth, Venus, and Jupiter. On December 25, 2004, Huygens separated from the orbiter at approximately 02:00 UTC. It reached Saturn's moon Titan on January 14, 2005, when it entered Titan's atmosphere and descended downward to the surface. It successfully returned data to Earth, using the orbiter as a relay. This was the first landing ever accomplished in the outer Solar System. 1900 – Forty Second Street reigns as the world’s entertainment capital. Oscar Hammerstein opens the Republic Theatre at 219 West 42nd Street. 1997 – The Ford Center opens December 26, with Ragtime, based on E.L. Doctorow’s novel of Little Old New York. 1953 – Postwar prosperity dosen’t help "The Duce". First-run movies play the grander movie places on Times Square. Legit theatre has also moved uptown, to new houses without second balconies, 42nd Street is a world of "grind" movie houses, penny arcades and crime. In the Film The Band Wagon, Fred Astaire, as a movie star returning to New York, has a little time to spare, and strools 42nd Street with friends Nanette Fabray and Oscar Levant. He laments the changes: "I just can’t get over it! This used to be the great theatre street of the town!" 1933 – On March 4, Franklin D. Roosevelt , promising a "New Deal" for America is sworn in as 32nd President of the U.S. On March 7, every bank in the country closes. 42nd Street the movie opens on March 9 at the Strand Theatre, Broadway and 47th Street. The ad in the New York Times promises "Hollywood’s 200 loveliest girls" on film, plus a live show from Bette Davis, Tom Mix and others. 1975 – The Backstage musical of the decade is Michael Bennet’s A Chorus Line, at the Shubert Theatre on West 42nd Street. In a time of recession, unemployment and "malaise", 42nd Street is saturated with crime, the theatres show second-run, adult and martial arts films. At times only a handful of shows are playing Broadway. A young auditioner in A Chorus Line sings "I need this job, oh God, I need this Show!"
1975 1933 Sadly I couldn't find a timeline for the Broadway The Lion King so I did what you said and did one on Broadway itself. One Dancer:
Max Casella One Choreographer:
Garth Fagan I personally love Timon from the movie The Lion King and when I watched the play it felt like it came to life. The actor that plays Timon was Max Casella, he was born in Washington, D.C. on June 6, 1967. In 1997, Max was casted for the original production of The Lion King. For his performance he was awarded a Theater World Award and received Drama Desk Award nomination. He also starred in t.v. shows like The Sopranos, Ed Wood, Analyze This, and voiced in The Little Mermaid 2; Return to the Sea. The choreographer behind this spectacular masterpiece is Garth Fagan, born in Kingston, Jamaica on May 3, 1940. Fagan's choreography incorporates elements of modern dance, ballet, Afro-Caribbean dance, and social dance. Many of his works are autobiographical or include themes of personal relevance. For his choreography for Walt Disney’s The Lion King, Fagan was awarded the prestigious 1998 Tony Award for Best Choreography. He also received the 1998 Drama Desk Award, 1998 Outer Critics Circle Award, 1998 Astaire Award, 2000 Laurence Olivier Award, 2001 Ovation Award, and the 2004 Helpmann Award for his work on the Broadway musical, which opened in fall 1997 to extraordinary critical praise. Fagan’s distinguished work in the theatre also includes the first fully staged production of the Duke Ellington street opera, Queenie Pie at the Kennedy Center in 1986 and the opening production of Joseph Papp's New York Shakespeare Festival's Shakespeare Marathon: A Midsummer Night's Dream, set in Brazil and directed by A.J. Antoon.
