The Lion King Back in Toronto

Journey to the African savanna with this groundbreaking adaptation of Disney's The Lion King. Devised by Tony winner Julie Taymor, this musical brings the story of Simba and co. to life with sumptuous costumes and choreography, complex puppetry, and all the songs you loved from the movie, plus some new ones! Described as 'Hamlet with fur', The Lion King is an epic adventure about a young lion cub who must return home to reclaim his destiny, after he is forced into exile by his villainous uncle. 

The Lion King opened on Broadway in 1997, and has been running ever since. It has six Tony Awards to its name, including Best Musical, and has earned over $6 billion from all of its worldwide productions. With Disney's new live action version hitting screens July 2019, there's no better time to experience this Broadway blockbuster on the stage!

9 to 5 - The Musical

The characters are each flawed and foolish, hopeful and determined. All of them are given moments of ignorance and moments of revelation.

Rich in atmosphere and buoyed by a seductive score that ranks among the best composed by a rock or pop figure for Broadway!
