The Lion King now enjoys world acclaim for its use of Japanese Bunraku puppetry, a style that incorporates puppets and puppeteers into the performance for an experience that welcomes audiences to push the boundaries of their imagination. Although based on the original Disney animated picture, Broadway's Lion King is more than just another Disney scheme to cash in on its well-received ideas (see: the Lion King sequels). This production incorporates the culture of Africa, the versatility of theater and a lot of spandex. Take the safari at 8 p.m.
