Those of you who have read my past blogs know that I am not the biggest Disney fan in the world. The truth is I have never seen The Lion King. I take that back. I saw Act One although to be honest I don't remember much about it except for the animals coming down the aisles during the first ten minutes of the show.That being said the show is here to stay my friends. No matter what I think of it. Which brings me to the reason for today's blog. At exactly 2pm today The Lion King will celebrate it's 6000th performance. Not only that but last week the show became the highest grossing Broadway show of all time surpassing Broadway's longest running show The Phantom of the Opera. The show which won six 1998 Tony Awards including Best Musical of the Year opened at the New Amsterdam Theatre on November 13. 1997 prior to moving to the Minskoff Theatre in June of 2006 where it continues to play to packed audiences eight times a week. Get your tickets to see The Lion King on Broadway. Oh sure it may not be my cup of tea but it just might be yours.
