Most have already seen The Lion King as a Disney film. But if you haven’t seen The Lion King in the form of a musical, complete with stunning costumes, wild choreography, and the kind of spectacle you can only find in theater, you’re seriously missing out.
The critically acclaimed musical is set to premier in Manila, March 2018. The show, which is also set to land in Singapore, Korea, Taiwan, and South Africa, is being launched in celebration of two anniversaries: its 20th year on stage and its 25th year as a global production. Having debuted on Broadway in November 1997, its longevity is a clear indication of how awesome this show has proven itself to be over the years. What also makes this show special is that audiences in these countries will be able to see performances by a new South African cast.
