<B>Disney takes 'The Lion King' out on the road across America</B><BR>By Robert Weller / Associated Press<P><BR>DENVER -- Even for the wizards at Disney, moving a mountain from city to city is a tall order. The problem is to avoid the trap ... door, that is. <BR>No theater is the same, as The Lion King tours America. Pride Rock can pop up at different spots on the stage in each city, so actors have to be alert. It's also prohibitively expensive to try to move the 10,000-pound set piece up through the stage floor of the 11 cities on the tour. And it would take at least two weeks to fit such a platform in each city, making an efficient tour impossible. <BR>Not to mention that the show "can't go ripping everybody's theater apart," says Thomas Schumacher, producer of the movie and the musical. <P><A HREF="http://detnews.com/2002/entertainment/0205/01/d06d-478274.htm" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>
