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 supervises new productions of the show around the world.
AFM Publisher’s Note: We attended this show and it was definitely a must-see, even if you have seen it before. The choreography, costumes, talent and music were all outstanding. It was great being back in Bass Concert Hall again. I would highly recommend this show.
