Giraffes strut, birds swoop, gazelles leap - the entire Serengeti comes to life. And as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly rises from the stage. This is THE LION KING. A spectacular visual feast, this adaptation of Disney's much-loved film transports you to a dazzling world that explodes with glorious colors, stunning effects and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba, and his epic journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.

The Lion King won six 1998 Tony Awards: Best Musical, Best Scenic Design (Richard Hudson), Best Costume Design (Julie Taymor), Best Lighting Design (Donald Holder), Best Choreography (Garth Fagan) and Best Direction of a Musical, making Taymor the first woman in theatrical history bestowed with the honor. The Lion King has also earned more than 70 major arts awards including the 1998 NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, the 1999 Grammy for Best Musical Show Album, the 1999 Evening Standard Award for Theatrical Event of the Year and the 1999 Laurence Olivier Awards for Best Choreography and Best Costume Design.

THE LION KING Will Launch Digital Lottery Starting Next Week!THE LION KING Will Launch Digital Lottery Starting Next Week!
by BWW News Desk - November 12, 2015

According to the New York Times, The Lion King is about to launch an online lottery, giving fans a chance at $30 next-day tickets.  Disney Theatrical Productions' Andrew Flatt, told NYT: "For many years we have explored ways to make more affordable tickets to The Lion King available to the public, but when we've tried a student rush in the past, some ticket brokers purchased the tickets at the rush price and resold them for much more than their face value." To participate, fans can enter starting the day before a performance (at lionking.com/lottery) and will receive an immediate notification if they have won. They then will pay online and collect tickets at the box office before the show. (more...)
