Broadway Spectacular Brings African Wildlife To Atlanta's Fox Theatre

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA, Ga. -

It's been called one of the greatest spectacles to ever grace the stage. And now, Disney's The Lion King roars into the Fox Theater, bringing with it some of the most recognizable songs of all-time.

The Lion King is a musical based on the 1994 Disney animated classic about a young lion who is destined to someday be king. The Broadway adaptation opened in 1997, becoming the highest-grossing musical of all-time and winning six Tony Awards. It features an instantly-recognizable score by Elton John and Tim Rice, including the songs "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" and "Circle Of Life."

For this musical version, incredible makeup and technical artists work to transform actors into African wildlife. Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken got the rare opportunity to go behind-the-scenes and watch that transformation up-close (he even got to experience one himself!).
