Mufasa Mask - One of a few Lion King Masks displayed at a local furniture store
(1 of 7)

The Lion King has roared onto the stage here in Honolulu.

The traveling Lion King production is in town until December. I just got a chance to see the show last night and it was great. It was a visual and aural feast rich in aesthetically pleasing African themed visual design and music. It was an interesting and beautiful interpretation of the Disney animated movie brought to the stage in a Broadway style unique unto itself. It would have been wrong (and difficult) to have taken pictures of the show as it was going on. I was able to take pictures of the outside, however, as well as the lobby. There was also a display of some of the masks at a local furniture store.

Jimm, Yes it is the same Lion King that Garth Fagan won his "Best Choreography" Tony Award for in 1998:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lion_King_%28musical%29#Tony_Awards

The Broadway show also won other Tonys including "Best Musical", "Best Costume Design of a Musical" and "Best Direction of a Musical" the last two both won by Julie Taymor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Julie_Taymor

Granted, this traveling production is not itself the one that was on Broadway but a very close reproduction of the Broadway version, from a company based out of Washington state I believe.
