When you think about the stage version of Disney’s “The Lion King,” what first comes to mind?
For some, it might be Elton John & Sir Tim Rice’s terrific score. While others might talk up the brilliant job that Julie Taymor did with staging this Tony Award-winner. Which Newsweek magazine called “ … a landmark event in entertainment.”
But – me personally – I feel what makes Disney’s “The Lion King” stand out from all of the other Broadway shows is its elaborate make-up & costumes. I mean, check out the get-up that Buyi Zama has to wear when she’s playing the role of Rafiki in this show.
