The Lions are Coming! The Lions are Coming!

The Lion King started out as a Disney movie back in 1994.  No one thought it would do that well.  They were wrong.  It's become one of the most beloved Disney's classics and was hailed as "the greatest wonder of all" by the Los Angeles Times.  Books were developed, sequels were created, and now there's a magnificent Broadway version of the movie.  And better yet: it's here in Minnesota!

The Lion King show was developed in 1997 by Julie Taymor, who also is the director of the show.  It opened on July 8, 1997 in Minneapolis at the Orpheum Theatre, and 15 years later, it's returned to the same theatre, same town, same state this very month!

This is the official promo video that gives you a glimpse at just how spectacular and stunning this show really is.

Now then, if you're interested in checking out this great show, I've found the sites where you can buy tickets online.  Check them out, and enjoy the show!
