Can you believe it's been almost fourteen years since The Lion King opened on Broadway? Time sure does fly. Not only that but the show still sells out practically every night. How many shows do you know that still do that? Not too many my friends. Now those of you who read my blogs are aware that I have never seen the show. The truth is it doesn't matter what I think. The show is here to stay.
Now having said that I do recommend the show. It is great for kids. Heck it's great for the whole family. The show which opened in December 1997 continues to sell out almost nightly at the Minskoff Theatre and by all estimations should be around for a very long time. Look I may not like it but a show doesn't run all those years on Broadway without doing something right.
By the way beginning in September the Producers of the show have decided to lower the price for all Orchestra and Front Mezzanine seats. During the Summer both sections sell for the same price. However when the kids go back to school sales drop which means in order for the show to continue at full capacity they need to make the show more affordable.Makes sense to me. Get your tickets to see The Lion King on Broadway. The 1998 Tony Award winner for Best Musical.
