Backstage at The Lion King – Inside the Puppet and Mask Workshop

For all you Lion King on Broadway fans – I’d like to share a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity I got a few months ago – This is an exclusive backstage interview with Willie Wilson, the longtime Puppet Supervisor for The Lion King’s touring cast, conducted in the actual puppet and mask workshop. I was fortunate to catch Willie during the show’s run in Seattle last February and get to see the masks and puppets up close and ask him a few questions to do a news story for the local paper, which can be read here. www.pnwlocalnews.com Enjoy the video, and hopefully you can learn a little about this amazing production and the intricate masks and puppets that grace the stage.
