THE LION KING

star ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar ratingstar rating

Theater to roar for. From the very first minutes of The Lion King you feel yourself on a whole new ground - no - in a whole new world.

USA Today

The Lion King is on tour and hits the Andrew Jackson Hall in Nashville, TN, Ended 2 Jun 2013.

Disney presents a musical that brings THE LION KING'S wildly popular story, the Oscar winning Elton John / Tim Rice songs, and an entire African landscape to the stage.

Directed and designed by Tony Award winner Julie Taymor, THE LION KING fills the theatre with sights and sounds of one of Broadway's most imaginative new talents - all to bring new life to Disneys crowd pleasing story of a young princes adventure-filled journey to adulthood - and the throne.

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.
