London's Lion King Roars On

News   London's Lion King Roars On Mega-musical The Lion King has extended its booking period from April 1 to June 29, 2003.

Mega-musical The Lion King has extended its booking period from April 1 to June 29, 2003.

Although very much an American show — produced by Disney Theatricals and based on the Disney box-office hit film — the show has music and lyrics by two British knights, Sir Elton John and Sir Tim Rice, respectively.

A triumph of stage style and design, this story of a young lion cub coming to maturity — and into the animal Kingdom that is rightfully his — continues to be one of London's most consistently full musicals and is a suitably epic production for the vast Lyceum Theatre, in which it plays.
