The Lion King at the Fox Theatre, January 10-28

Don’t miss the musical sensation of The Lion King this month at the Fox Theatre. Based on the classic 1994 Disney animated film, the musical Lion King is brought to life with a cast of more than 40 actors, playing animals from giraffes to gazelles. Loosely based on Shakespeare’s Hamlet and circled around the savannah of Pride Rock, The Lion King features a struggle for power between young Simba and Mufasa. This Tony Award-winning show features music from Elton John and Tim Rice, including the Oscar Award-winning song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” and “Circle of Life.” As the New York Times says, “There is simply nothing else like it.” Get your tickets now!
