The musical brought in all the stops with unique music and lyrics by Elton John and Tim Rice, with additional music from esteemed composers, including the legendary Hans Zimmer. The musical has captivated fans, young and old, across the world. It has a story reminiscent 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!

And now that it’s on its 26th year since premiering in 1997, it remains one of the must-see 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 seeing 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 gorgeous and awe-inspiring sights theater can offer from before and behind, so eyes in the back of your head will come in handy.”
