REVIEW: ‘The Lion King’ clearly rules at Bass Hall

  The Lion King musical has a legacy that precedes itself. There is no surprise that Disney’s commitment to this visual feast was above and beyond, but that never takes away from the actual experience.

Even with its quarter-century life on Broadway and two decades of touring, the show’s popularity has not waned. The proof shows how difficult it is to get tickets because shows have been selling out.

But it’s worth the effort to try to see the lush production live. For a musical production, the irony in The Lion King is that you go for the spectacle of it all.

The animal costumes and puppetry and set designs are all stunning and engrossing. When one of Elton John’s and Tim Rice’s songs come on, they are almost secondary to the visuals – or rather, they punctuate the visuals rather than being showstopping numbers.
