Disney's The Lion King Is Still A Crowd Favorite

Can you believe it's been almost twelve years since The Lion King first burst onto the scene? Back in 1994 Disney made their first foray onto Broadway with Beauty and the Beast which ran for over thirteen years. Not too bad for a show no one ever thought would make it in the first place. Following that triumph they embarked on what would become their biggest hit too date. Once again no one though that The Lion King would be come the worldwide hit it has become but Disney proved everybody wrong. Not only that but it beat the odds-on favorite Ragtime for the Tony Award for Best Musical. Which by the way is returning to Broadway this fall. Maybe it will win for Best Revival next June. That is of course Disney doesn't bring Aida back. I seriously doubt it but stranger things have happened. Regardless The Lion King should be here for a very long time and continue to delight audiences of all ages for years to come.
