As kids we all remember Timon and Pumba singing to Simba “Hakuna Matata” which means, no worries for the rest our days. However it was allowing him to feel the need to express himself freely throughout the Serengeti in hopes of following his dads legacy which was left behind. Here we have Giraffes strutting. Birds swooping. Gazelles leaping. The entire Serengeti comes to life as never before. And as the music soars, Pride Rock slowly emerges from the mist. This is Disney’s THE LION KING. Winner of six Tony Awards, including Best Musical, THE LION KING brings together one of the most imaginative creative teams on Broadway. Tony Award -winning director Julie Taymor brings to life a story filled with hope and adventure set against an amazing backdrop of stunning visuals. THE LION KING also features the extraordinary work of Tony Award -winning choreographer Garth Fagan and some of Broadway’s most recognizable music, crafted by Tony Award -winning artists Elton John and Tim Rice.
