Currently playing at the lovely Minskoff Theatre on Broadway in the heart of Times Square, The Lion King is an unforgettable stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film. The winner of six Tony Awards®, including Best Musical, The Lion King has wowed audiences worldwide!
At TicketsatWork.com, we’re ready to make the lights of Broadway just a little bit brighter with show tickets for The Lion King, and here are 5 reasons to get you excited to see the show we absolutely love:
1. Music – If there’s one element of the show that stays with you long after the curtain comes down it’s the wonderful music – highlighted by the magnificent score crafted by the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Elton John and Tim Rice. And the songs! The performance is stocked with memorable show tunes like “Circle of Life” and “Can You Feel the Love Tonight,” among many others.
2. Characters – See the beloved characters of Simba, Mufasa, Nala and Rafiki come to life on the Broadway stage. It’s exciting to see the talented cast step into the roles of these popular characters as they tell the epic tale of Simba and his journey from wide-eyed cub to King of Pride Rock.
3. Set Design – Tony Award-winner Richard Hudson spectacularly recreated the African Savannah for the Broadway production, setting the stage (literally) for an exciting production of puppetry and dance. The centerpiece of the design being Pride Rock, which rotates as it rises up through the stage floor.
4. Costumes – Helping bring to life characters like Scar, Rafiki and Simba are the dazzling costumes from Tony Award-winners Julie Taymor and Michael Curry. It’s impressive to see these intricate costumes designed to best personify the actors’ role on stage. You’ll be amazed by the incredible transformations the cast of The Lion King goes through for each performance.
5. Choreography – We love the fluidity and strength of the dancers in the show, courtesy of Garth Fagan, the Tony-winning choreographer of The Lion King. The show features an entertaining blend of global dance traditions, each character matched to a specific style of movement.
The list of Broadway shows ‘you just gotta see’ is a distinguished collection, and Disney’s The Lion King is one of them – for sure!
