The Lion King
The Lion King is an award-winning Disney musical based on the popular 1994 movie. The touching story takes place in Africa, about the adventures of the lion, Simba the destined King of the Pridelands. Rafiki, the wise mandrill, Simba's father, King Mufasa, Queen Sarabi all play a part in Simba's growth. Mufasa teaches Simba the responsibilities of life, until Mufasa's life is cut short by his evil brother, Scar. Scar deceptively takes over part of Simba's upbringing until all is revealed and the “wool” is uncovered from Simba's eyes.
Graced with the visual effects, beautiful, bright colors, and the rhythmic African music, the Lion King will keep you moving and singing the familiar songs, including music by Elton John. It also features an array of masks and attention-grabbing costumes. Directed by Julie Taymor, the show has been seen by over 65 million people worldwide and continues to play at the Lyceum Theatre in London.
