Simba’s rise to greatness

The Lion King Broadway starts off when Simba is just a small lion cub. He is unburdened by the affairs of the jungle while growing up, relying on his father Mufasa to make the important decisions and lead the animals of Prideland. As the prince, Simba is in line to be the next ruler of the jungle. However, a series of tragic events lead to Simba fleeing from the kingdom to save his hide.

After the passage of many years, Simba is all-grown-up. He realizes his true destiny and returns to Prideland to claim what is his. What trials and tribulations lie in his way as he makes his glorious comeback? Can Simba assume the role of the king with ease or will he face new challenges instead? Book a date at the Minskoff Theatre to find out the answers to these questions.

The story is especially appealing to children, showcasing an adventurous tale full of the various animals. Avoid missing this production at any rate.
