About the Event
Prepare to roar out your approval as the Circle of Life is completed in Disney’s spectacular live-action production of ‘The Lion King’. A classic film reborn for the stage, ‘The Lion King’ is one of the most successful musicals in the world, and has been playing without pause on Broadway since 1997. A joyous celebration of life, this explosion of colors and rhythms is an experience to remember for the whole family.
Directed by the acclaimed Julie Taymor, and with six Tonys in its paws, ‘The Lion King’ utilises phenomenal costumes and choreography to enact this classic coming-of-age story. With iconic songs by Sir Elton John and Tim Rice, an evening with the Lion King is one you’ll remember for years to come.
From its spiritual home on New York’s ‘Great White Way’ the Broadway musical has been packing the audiences in for over a century. Legendary writers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, and Stephen Sondheim, or partnerships like the Gershwins , Lerner & Loewe, Rogers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, and Boublil & Schönberg, have created spectacular vehicles for star performers – so-called ‘triple threats’, who sing, dance, and act with equal talent – and powerful ensembles alike. Running the gamut from spectacular to stark and restrained, musical theatre can be pure frivolous fun, but has a long history of tackling serious social and political issues. Always primed for reinvention, alongside Broadway’s perennial hits and classics, musical theatre has a new vigor in the twenty first century, as live-action Disney, rap and ‘jukebox’ shows light up new theaters, and attract new audiences. The Show will indeed Go On!
Disney’s The Lion King is suitable for children of all ages, and features amazing costumes and phenomenal dance routines.
