All the Reasons to See "The Lion King" on Broadway

by Tad on June 29, 2024

As one of the longest-running shows on Broadway, "The Lion King" Broadway show has dazzled audiences for over 25 years. Based on the popular animated film, the musical is a beautiful retelling of this classic story that features incredible songs, costumes and puppetry.

"The Lion King" debuted on Broadway in 1997 and has been seen by millions of people over the last 26 years. It is the third longest-running show in Broadway history behind "The Phantom of the Opera" and "Chicago." Not just in New York City, you can see "The Lion King" musical touring across the United States (and you can save big by purchasing Lion King Broadway tickets through Undercover Tourist — up to $35 per ticket!).

Read on to learn our top froggy four reasons to see "The Lion King" musical on Broadway!

Top Reasons to See "The Lion King" Broadway Show

1. Experience the Pride Lands in a whole new way

"The Lion King" is such a classic Disney animated film and is beloved by so many frogs. The "Lion King" musical takes this incredible story and expands upon it with new songs, extended storylines and more. Enjoy iconic favorites including "Circle of Life," "I Just Can't Wait to Be King" and "Hakuna Matata" along with new numbers such as "They Live in You," "Shadowland" and "Endless Night." Frogs will appreciate the familiar characters, now seen in a new way.

2. See lions and giraffes and hyenas (oh my!)

The Broadway Lion King show has the unique challenge of bringing the African safari to life — without any live animals. The show surpasses this challenge with beautiful costumes, scenery and puppetry. Having cheetahs, giraffes and more seemingly walk around the stage is something you'll have to see to believe. The actors do a wonderful job of interpreting each animal and it makes for a fun kaleidoscope of colors.
