Broadway Show: The Lion King
About Broadway Show: The Lion King
Disney's beloved movie comes to brilliant life through the magic of Julie Taymor.
Giraffes strut, birds swoop, gazelles leap! The entire savanna comes to life and, as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly rises out of the stage. This is The Lion King.
The winner of six 1998 Tony Awards, including Best New Musical, it is the story of a young lion cub named Simba who struggles to accept the responsibilities of adulthood and his destined role as king. To bring the classic 1994 film to life, Disney turned to the story's roots, its rich mythology, powerful human drama and primal African rhythms to create a fantastic new musical unlike anything Broadway has ever seen.
Marvel at the breathtaking spectacle of animals miraculously brought to life by a cast of over 40 actors in what The London Daily Telegraph calls "a blaze of fabulous imagination." Wonder at the inspiration of award-winning director/designer Julie Taymor, as one of the most successful films in history is stunningly recreated live on stage. Thrill to the pulsating rhythms of the African Pride Lands and an unforgettable score including Elton John and Tim Rice's Oscar-winning "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" and songs by South African composer Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Jay Rifkin, Julie Taymor, and Hans Zimmer. Treat yourself and your friends and family to a memory that will last a lifetime at the musical Time Magazine calls "awe-inspiring" and "a gorgeous, gasp-inducing spectacle!" The Lion King is an adventure into another world.
