Disney’s Award winning smash hit The Lion King – Musical celebrated it’s 20th Anniversary with a special gala performance at the Minskoff Theatre for family, friends, Disney alumni, veteran cast members, and more.

The audience last night got the surprise shock of their life when the musical’s co-composer Award winner Sir Elton John made a surprise appearance during a special ENCORE finale to perform CIRCLE OF LIFE with the cast.

Happy 20th Birthday THE LION KING. Here’s to 20 and many more years of FEELING THE LOVE TONIGHT and HAKUNA MATATA!!!


Tonight we celebrated 20 years on Broadway with some of our closest family and friends, including Julie Taymor and the entire creative team, over 100 cast alumni and a surprise performance by the one and only Sir Elton John.

We send our love and gratitude to all of you who helped get us to this moment. #lionking20
