After 20 landmark years on Broadway, THE LION KING continues ascendant as one of the most popular stage musicals in the world.  Since its premiere on November 13, 1997, 25 global productions have been seen by more than 95 million people.  Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions (under the direction of Thomas Schumacher), THE LION KING has made theatrical history with six productions worldwide running 15 or more years.  Having been performed in eight different languages over the show’s life (Japanese, German, Korean, French, Dutch, Spanish, Mandarin and Portuguese), productions of THE LION KING can currently be seen on Broadway; London’s West End; Hamburg; Tokyo; Madrid; Scheveningen, Holland; Singapore; and on tours across North America and Japan, for a total of nine productions running concurrently across the globe.

Having played over 100 cities in 20 countries on every continent except Antarctica, THE LION KING’s worldwide gross exceeds that of any film, Broadway show or other entertainment title in box office history.

 THE LION KING won six 1998 Tony Awards®:  Best Musical, Best Scenic Design (Richard Hudson), Best Costume Design (Julie Taymor), Best Lighting Design (Donald Holder), Best Choreography (Garth Fagan) and Best Direction of a Musical.  THE LION KING has also earned more than 70 major arts awards including the 1998 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the 1999 Grammy® for Best Musical Show Album, the 1999 Evening Standard Award for Theatrical Event of the Year and the 1999 Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.

The show’s director, costume designer and mask co-designer Julie Taymor continues to play an integral part in the show’s ongoing success.  The first woman to win a Tony Award for Direction of a Musical, Taymor has in recent years supervised new productions of the show around the world.

The Broadway score features Elton John and Tim Rice’s music from The Lion King animated film along with three new songs by John and Rice; additional musical material by South African Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin, Julie Taymor and Hans Zimmer; and music from “Rhythm of the Pride Lands,” an album inspired by the original music in the film, written by Lebo M, Mark Mancina and Hans Zimmer.  The resulting sound of THE LION KING is a fusion of Western popular music and the distinctive sounds and rhythms of Africa, ranging from the Academy Award®-winning song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” to the haunting ballad “Shadowland.”

The book has been adapted by Roger Allers, who co-directed The Lion King animated feature, and Irene Mecchi, who co-wrote the film’s screenplay.  Other members of the creative team include:  Michael Curry, who designed the masks and puppets with Taymor, Steve Canyon Kennedy (sound design), Michael Ward (hair and makeup design), John Stefaniuk (associate director), Marey Griffith (associate choreographer), Clement Ishmael (music supervisor) and Doc Zorthian (production supervisor). Anne Quart serves as co-producer.

Chicago Sun-Times

 LES MISÉRABLES originally opened in London at the Barbican Theatre on October 8, 1985, transferred to the Palace Theatre on December 4, 1985 and moved to its current home at the Queen’s Theatre on April 3, 2004 where it continues to play to packed houses and is the only version of the original production left in the world. The original Broadway production of LES MISÉRABLES opened at the Broadway Theatre on March 12, 1987 and transferred to the Imperial Theatre on October 17, 1990 running for 6,680 performances.  The original US National Tour began in November 1987 and visited over 150 cities before closing in St. Louis, MO in 2006.  Broadway audiences welcomed LES MISÉRABLES back to New York on November 9, 2006 where the show played the Broadhurst Theatre until its final performance on January 6, 2008.

The new production was conceived in 2009 to celebrate the 25th Anniversary, with record-breaking productions in the U.K., Australia, Korea, Japan, Spain, France, Manila, Singapore, São Paulo and Dubai. The North American Tour traveled across the U.S. for two years then played a five-month engagement in Toronto before returning to the Imperial Theatre on Broadway in March 2014 for over 1,000 performances.

One of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s finest works, THE KING AND I boasts a score that features such beloved classics as “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Hello Young Lovers,” “Shall We Dance” and “Something Wonderful.” Set in 1860’s Bangkok, the musical tells the story of the unconventional and tempestuous relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King, in an imperialistic world, brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children.

In the words of Bartlett Sher, director of the 2015 Broadway production and the first national tour, “Great classics come back to us when we need them the most. In order to live up to the scale of its ambition, we have to go both backward and forward in time. It’s like having one foot in the past as deeply as we can, one foot in the present, and our eyes looking out as far ahead as we can to see how it resonates.”

Tony Award®–winning director Bartlett Sher was reunited with the award-winning creative team from the Lincoln Center Theater Productions of South Pacific and The Light in the Piazza. The creative team for this new production includes direction by Shelly Butler, based on Bartlett Sher’s original direction, featuring sets by Michael Yeargan, costumes by Catherine Zuber (seven-time Tony Award® winner, including The King and I), lights by Donald Holder, sound by Scott Lehrer, musical supervision by Theodore Sperling and casting by Jason Styres, CSA. Tony Award® winner Christopher Gattelli’s choreography, based on the original choreography by Jerome Robbins, will be recreated for this tour. The production features the musical’s original 1951 orchestrations by Robert Russell Bennet with dance and incidental music arranged by Trude Rittmann.

He will play a one-week limited engagement at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County (@arshtcenter) until Sunday, May 13th.

Broadway History was made in 2016 when, for the first time ever, two Mexican-born actors led a Broadway musical! Together again – Latin superstars, and long-time friends, Jaime Camil and Bianca Marroquín (@biancapamelamarroquin) will appear on stage opposite each other reprising their Broadway roles as “Billy Flynn” and “Roxie Hart” in Miami’s limited engagement of only eight performances! Bianca Marroquín is a CHICAGO veteran having appeared in the Broadway cast off and on since 2002.

Broadway’s Longest Running American Musical
Ambassador Theatre, NYC
Pictured: Jaime Camil as Billy Flynn

Jaime Camil is one of the most well-known actors in the Spanish-speaking world and now the USA is welcoming him with open arms thanks to his performance as “Rogelio de la Vega” in the critically-acclaimed and multi-awarded TV show “Jane the Virgin.” He’s a Critic’s Choice and Teen Choice Award nominee and an Imagen Award winner for the role. He has starred in more than 20 award-winning films including Pulling Strings and 200 Cartas (alongside Lin-Manuel Miranda) and has won global and countless film and theater awards throughout his over 20-year career. Mr. Camil has led the most successful and highest-rated telenovelas of all time, including “La Fea Más Bella,” “Por Ella Soy Eva” and “Qué Pobres Tan Ricos.” He has recorded four platinum-selling albums and has led many musicals in his native Mexico City including West Side Story, Hook, Aladdin, El Diluvio que Viene and more. In 2005, he led the Broadway-bound musical The Mambo Kings, he previously appeared on Broadway in Latinologues and he also starred in a successful three-night only summer 2017 production of Mamma Mia! at the Hollywood Bowl playing the role of “Sam Carmichael” opposite Jennifer Nettles as “Donna.” Mr. Camil was also the voice of “Papá” in the Academy Award-winning animated feature, Coco, which is the top-grossing film of all time in Mexico. Mr. Camil is repped by Zero Gravity Management.

 CHICAGO also stars Bianca Marroquín as Roxie Hart, Terra C. MacLeod as Velma Kelly, Paul Vogt as Amos Hart, Jennifer Fouché as Matron “Mama” Morton and D. Ratell as Mary Sunshine.

With a legendary book by Fred Ebb and Bob Fosse, music by John Kander and lyrics by Fred Ebb, CHICAGO is now the #1 longest-running American musical in Broadway history.

Produced by Barry and Fran Weissler, CHICAGO is the winner of six 1997 Tony Awards including Best Musical Revival and the Grammy Award for Best Musical Cast Recording.

The national tour is directed by David Hyslop and choreographed by David Bushman. Walter Bobbie is the director of the original New York Production and Ann Reinking was the original choreographer in the style of Bob Fosse. CHICAGO features set design by John Lee Beatty, costume design by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Tony Award winner Ken Billington and sound design by Scott Lehrer and casting by Stewart/Whitley. The production also features orchestrations by Ralph Burns, supervising music direction by Rob Fisher.

Set amidst the razzle-dazzle decadence of the 1920s, CHICAGO is the story of Roxie Hart, a housewife and nightclub dancer who murders her on-the-side lover after he threatens to walk out on her. Desperate to avoid conviction, she dupes the public, the media and her rival cellmate, Velma Kelly, by hiring Chicago’s slickest criminal lawyer to transform her malicious crime into a barrage of sensational headlines, the likes of which might just as easily be ripped from today’s tabloids.
