STAGE TUBE: THE LION KING Pays Tribute to Nelson Mandela on GMA
As the world continues to mourn the loss of Nelson Mandela, the cast of Broadway's The Lion King performed a special tribute to the legend on today's 'Good Morning America.' Watch the full performance below.
Disney's landmark musical event, THE LION KING, played its 6,681st performance on Saturday evening, November 30th, surpassing the original Broadway production of LES MISERABLES (6,680 performances) to become the fourth longest-running show in Broadway history.
Having recently celebrated its 16th anniversary on Broadway last month, THE LION KING finds itself in a position unprecedented in the history of Broadway. Already the highest-grossing show in Broadway history, the show is routinely the #1 Broadway show in a given week, a feat previously unimaginable for a show at this stage in its life.
THE LION KING moved in its entirety, including all 52 cast members and the entire 24-member orchestra, from the New Amsterdam Theatre on June 4, 2006, and began performances nine days later at its new home in the Minskoff Theatre on June 13, 2006.
