We were excited to learn that Disney’s The Lion King will be coming to Vancouver’s Queen Elizabeth Theatre this Summer. This 6 time Tony Award winning show has been running for 18 years and is still one of the most popular stage musicals in the world.
I am looking to taking a night off and reconnecting with my husband. We are looking forward to spending an evening with some our favourite characters, Simba, Mufasa, Rafiki, the Hyenas. And of course we cannot forget the carefree Timon and Pumbaa that will always remind us to Hakuna Matata (it means no worries)!
ABOUT THE LION KING
In its 18th year, THE LION KING remains ascendant as one of the most popular stage musicals in the world. Since its Broadway premiere on November 13, 1997, 22 global productions have been seen by more than 75 million people and, cumulatively, run a staggering 112 years. Produced by Disney Theatrical Productions (under the direction of Thomas Schumacher), THE LION KING is only the second show in history to generate five productions worldwide running 10 or more years. Translated into seven different languages (Japanese, German, Korean, French, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese), productions of THE LION KING can currently be seen on Broadway, London’s West End, Hamburg, Tokyo, Madrid, Sao Paulo, Sydney, Australia and on tour across North America, the U.K., and Japan. The Australian production marks the tenth concurrent worldwide production of THE LION KING, the highest number of productions running at any one time in the show’s history. Having played 19 countries on every continent except Antarctica, THE LION KING’s worldwide gross exceeds that of any film, Broadway show or other entertainment title in box office history.
