The theatrical production of The Lion King has made history as one of the most impressive theatrical projects of Disney Theatrical Productions. The musical brought in all the stops with distinctive music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice, with other music from esteemed composers, including the legendary Hans Zimmer. The musical has wowed fans, people of all ages, across the world. It has a story akin to the 1994 animated movie, but the stage adaptation has an enhanced depth, the music has been given an African music approach, and the costumes are breathtaking!

For this reason, it would almost be a shame to miss this outstanding musical, since it’s coming to San Francisco this winter! That means you get priority on tickets, and instead of catching this Broadway legend in New York, you’re watching it right in your city! Mind you; the show never comprises quality. The Broadway critic of Entertainment Weekly wrote in his review, “The Lion King can make you fall in love with theater, no matter what theater it's in.” Indeed, the production has traveled all over the world. And now that it’s on its 26th year since premiering in 1997, it remains one of the top musicals.

“Where are you, really, anyway? The location is supposed to be a theater, a thoroughfare never thought of as a gateway to Eden. Yet somehow you have fallen into what appears to be a primal paradise,” says the New York Times’ Ben Brantly after attending the Broadway production in 1997.

Another critic, John Simon wrote, “Come to The Lion King with two pairs of eyes, one ear, and half a brain. You will be bombarded by some of the most stunning and spectacular sights theater can offer from before and behind, so eyes in the back of your head will come in handy.”

This winter, the Orpheum Theatre welcomes the touring story of The Lion King! The show on Friday 1st December 2023 is guaranteed to deliver all the wonderful things mentioned by critics.
