Celebrating its 14th year at London’s Lyceum Theatre and now on its first tour of the UK and Ireland, Julie Taymor’s reimagining of Disney’s beloved animated film The Lion King is a theatrical event you will never forget.
Based on Disney’s 1994 animated feature film, the stage adaptation opened at Broadway’s New Amsterdam Theatre in November 1997. Julie Taymor’s production transferred to the West End in 1999, opening at the Lyceum on 19 October 1999 (previews from 24 September) and it soon bacame London’s Greatest Family Musical/Show. Now all that majesty and awe is about to hit Manchester for a short run at the Palace Theatre in Manchester. In a press statement about the tour Disney Theatrical Group president Thomas Schumacher said: “Following years of planning, and after receiving the counsel of some very smart friends in the British theatre world, we are delighted to be launching a production that conveys Julie Taymor’s epic vision and at a moment that feels absolutely right.” Although there are currently 19 global productions of the The Lion King, with the show having been seen by more than 65 million people in 15 countries across five continents, this will be the first time the show has hit the road in the UK. The Lion King features 15 songs, including the five from the film and new songs by Elton John and Tim Rice, with additional numbers by South African-born Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Hans Zimmer and Julie Taymor. The book is by Roger Allers and Irene Mecchi.
