5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,555 libraries worldwide
Max Bialystock was once the king of Broadway, but now he only seems to be able to produce flops. Things turn around for Max when he's visited by the neurotic accountant Leo Bloom, who proposes a scheme tailor-made for producers who can only make flops: raise far more money than you need, then make sure the show is despised. No one will be interested in it, so you can pocket the surplus. With this in mind, they decide to produce a musical called 'Springtime for Hitler' written by escaped Nazi Franz Liebken. Then they get the insanely flamboyant Roger De Bris to direct and hire the loopy Swedish bombsheel Ulla as the lead actress.

The Pridelands are a small slice of heaven, ruled by Mufasa, the Lion King. His son Simba is preoccupied with life and all its potential, and neglects the lessons Mufasa tries to impart. Scar, Mufasa's brother has lived his adult in the shadow of his better looking, more successful, universally adored sibling. Capitalizing upon Simba's youthful exuberance and reckless abandon, Scar manipulates his nephew into playing the key role in his ascension to power, and believing himself guilty of Mufasa's death. Simba flees from his home and family in shame and disgrace, never to return. Years of abuse and neglect under King Scar begin, and the Pridelands are devastated, and lionesses are hunting far outside their boundaries. One such is Nala, who discovers the exiled Simba, who must face the ghosts and demons of his past to save the ones he loves.

Love's labour's lost a romantic musical comedy ( Visual )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 712 libraries worldwide
The handsome young King of Navarre and his three friends -- Berowne, Longaville, and Dumaine -- make a pledge to retreat for three years to study literature and art, depriving themselves of all comforts, including the company of women, for the duration. The pledge survives intact for exactly as long as it takes the beautiful Princess of France and her three friends -- Rosaline, Maria, and Katherine -- to travel to Navarre on a diplomatic mission from her father. Shakespeare purists will probably be horrified that Branagh has juxtaposed the Bard with classics by Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, and George and Ira Gershwin, in a loving homage to the great musicals of the '30s. He has also thrown in every cliché of said musicals, reviving the abandoned genre with 90 minutes of elaborately staged flossy, frothy, campy, cotton-candy fun.
