Review: ‘The Lion King’ at the Hippodrome Theatre

The Lion King is epic. It is so full of throat-tightening spectacle and aural splendor that Baltimore’s grand Hippodrome Theatre can appear at times like a modest host.

As the ominous chords of the overture rumble, apostles shuffle and huddle in the shadows as machine guns erupt around the theater. […]
