When The Lion King Musical premiered on Broadway in 1997, the audience was stunned by how the musical made the 1994 animated film into an epic show fit for both audiences of all ages! The music, based on the compositions from the film, has exponentially left its contemporary music origins. The musical has reimagined the tracks, giving them authentic African music influences.

After all, the Lion King’s story was set in the vast savannas of Africa. Besides the change of music structures, the costume and puppet designs were also breathtaking. Just how do you portray large wild animals on stage without making it cartoonish or almost childish? Apparently, Taymor has excellently realized this and won multiple awards for her vision. The New York Times was prompt to commend this achievement. “Ms. Taymor's vision, which is largely rooted in ritual forms of theater from Asia and Africa, collides with that of Disney, where visual spectacle is harnessed in the service of heartwarming storytelling. There will inevitably be longueurs for adults and children attending this show. But it offers a refreshing and more sophisticated alternative to the standard panoply of special effects that dominate most tourist-oriented shows today. Seen purely as a visual tapestry, there is simply nothing else like it.”

This 2023 at the Minskoff Theatre, you can look forward to the same level, refinement, and excellence as The Lion King’s 1997 Broadway production. As mentioned by a critic from Entertainment Weekly, “The Lion King can make you develop a deep affection for theater, no matter what theater it's in.”

Indeed, no matter how long the production has been ongoing, The Lion King remains one of the most popular musicals of all time. It’s currently recorded as Broadway’s time-honored show, surpassing over 1 billion dollars in ticket sales. It has also been recorded that the musical has been enjoyed by over 112 million people worldwide. That number is constantly expanding due to musical enthusiasts flocking to the theaters to catch The Lion King!
