THE KING HAS RETURNED! This week has been very emotional and exciting as the companies of some of the hottest tickets on the Great Bright Way (all fully vaccinated) have reunited IN-PERSON to begin rehearsals to relaunch their Broadway runs. One of those notable shows was the New York company of Disney’s Award winning phenomenon The Lion King.
For the first time since being in isolation for 17 1/2 months, here is longtime cast member Tshidi Manye as “Rafiki” and the Broadway cast bringing that magic of the Savanah back to life. From their 1st day of rehearsals back in the lobby of the Minskoff Theatre, here they are going full out singing the musical’s powerful opening number…… CIRCLE OF LIFE. It also includes an inspirational opening remark from the show’s director, creator, and designer Tony winner Julie Taymor.
Tissues ready before watching.
The Broadway company of THE LION KING is set to make audiences ROAR again at the Minskoff Theatre starting September 14th, 2021.
It marks as the 2nd company to open following the show’s London production last month.
The show is also expecting to relaunch its ongoing North American National Tour later this Fall plus its various companies around the world.
Our hearts are beating!!!
Who is ready to once again FEEL THE LOVE TONIGHT?!!!
