Adapted from the beloved Disney film, The Lion King is a musical theater production that tells the story of a lion named Simba whose life takes an unexpected turn after his father, King Mufasa, dies at the hands of Simba's power-hungry uncle, Scar. Unable to deal with the tragedy at such a young age, Simba runs away from home believing that he is responsible for his father's death. When a chance encounter with an old friend reminds him of the importance of family and his responsibility to the rest of the lion pride, he finally returns home and faces the truth about his uncle's part in his father's death. Packed full of the film's renowned songs, including "Circle of Life" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", Disney's The Lion King quickly garnered critical and commercial acclaim for its visually stunning rendition of the classic story.
