Here is why we at Broadway Inbound think it's a perfect show for groups:
Welcome to the Pride! Follow the adolescent lion cub Simba on his coming-of-age journey following the tragic death of his father, Mufasa, at the hands of his treacherous brother Scar, who seeks to usurp the throne. Growing from a brash, arrogant youngster to a courageous and clever leader, Simba has to fight his own shame as well as his cruel adversaries. The Lion King offers an entertaining, touching, and exhilarating experience perfect for a group outing, ideal for all age groups.
Two legendary artists, Elton John and Tim Rice, present 18 original compositions, including tunes that have captured people’s hearts worldwide decades ago. The energetic and uplifting "Hakuna Matata," the enchanting "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," and the signature "The Circle of Life" are all showcased to their best, as well as numerous other remarkable songs. The Lion King tugs at your emotions, prompting you to cry, laugh, and lean forward in anticipation as Simba contends for his rightful place as the king of Pride Lands. It’s the perfect musical for Disney fans and Broadway lovers alike.
But The Lion King is not simply a musical for kids. While it undoubtedly captivated children of all ages when the film debuted in 1994, the vivid tale also resonates with adult viewers. Simba's journey has evolved into a timeless classic, and its Broadway rendition adaptation breathes life into cherished characters through a brilliant, melodious, and emotionally stirring spectacle, matching the influence of the animated film.
It is a touching show about family, friendship, and finding your place in the world. The Lion King is a fantastic chance for groups to experience theatre together and relish in the wonderment on stage and the circle of life we are all a part of.
