The Lion King Musical Roars Into The Broward Center Thru 2/1

The Lion King is the most popular stage musical in the world! Now in its 18th year, The Lion King is a part of the The Broadway in Fort Lauderdale 2014-2015 subscription season.

The Lion King Musical Fort Lauderdale Broward Center

We are truly fortunate to have The Lion King return to Fort Lauderdale for the 2014-2015 Broadway in Fort Lauderdale subscription season at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts. The Lion King wants you to journey with Simba through this touching and unforgettable Disney tale, but you can only do so for a limited time during its engagement running from January 7 – February 1, 2015.

THE LION KING is only the second show in history to generate five productions worldwide running 10 or more years. Translated into seven different languages (Japanese, German, Korean, French, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese), productions of THE LION KING can currently be seen on Broadway, London’s West End, Hamburg, Tokyo, Madrid, Sao Paulo, Sydney, Australia and on tour across North America, the U.K., and Japan.

Experience the phenomenon of Disney’s THE LION KING. Marvel at the breathtaking spectacle of animals brought to life by award-winning director Julie Taymor, whose visual images for this show you’ll remember forever. Thrill to the pulsating rhythms of the African Pridelands and an unforgettable score including Elton John and Tim Rice’s Oscar-winning song “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and “Circle of Life.”

“A landmark event in entertainment” says Newsweek.

The New York Times says, “There is simply nothing else like it.”
