    Success of The Lion King Musical

    The Lion King Musical, which is based on the 1994 movie of the same name, has now become far more successful than the movie it’s based on. The musical production opened on Broadway back in 1997 and found its way to the West End in 1999, where it has been running ever since.

    The musical is directed by Julie Taymor and in 2010 more than 820,000 people saw the London show. Worldwide, 70 million people have now seen and experienced the musical production. With our Edinburgh Lion King offer, you can see the theatre show and join this list of 70 million delighted fans.

    The Lion King Musical in Scotland

    It’s now Scotland’s turn to experience the musical spectacular. The Lion King Musical makes its way to the Edinburgh Playhouse for a run over the Christmas and New Year period. Watch over 50 actors as they bring The Lion King to life in the Edinburgh theatre show.

    When the musical arrives at the Playhouse theatre, it will be the biggest audience that has ever seen the Lion King in one sitting anywhere in Europe. This is possible thanks to the Playhouse’s 3000 capacity theatre.

    It will be the only Scottish date for the musical so grab your tickets while they are still available.
