The Lion King – Unbeatable, Unmissable, Unforgettable
Posted on 21 June 2013
14 years after opening, The Lion King is still a deeply felt celebration of life.
In London alone, 8 million people have seen The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre in the past 14 years; surely the buzz must be fading away? Surely it now falls into the category of “been there, done that”...
If you haven’t been there or done that, then you have most definitely missed out. The Lion King is an all-singing, all-dancing feast for the senses. Assisted at every point by the energetic contributions of countless performers, The Lion King's broad brushstrokes deliver nothing less than a sweeping panorama of a continent in dignified motion and a deeply felt celebration of life.
Set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to the evocative rhythms of Africa, Disney's multi award-winning musical The Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre will redefine your expectations of theatre. Based on the Disney animated film, The Lion King premiered on Broadway in 1997 and opened in London in October 1999, playing to packed houses ever since!
Given that acquiring the Disney film is practically a birthright now, a trip to the theatre to see how it all looks in the flesh almost counts as an inevitable part of the package.
