The Broadway cast of Disney's The Lion King recently boarded the A train at 59th Street in New York City and caught subway riders by surprise with an impromptu performance of "Circle of Life."
Cast member Jamal Lee Harris, who posted the flash-mob video on YouTube, wrote, "The Broadway Cast of The Lion King took a break between shows on June 28th and took over a NEW YORK CITY subway car to give riders a little surprise. Last year the NYC subway served over 1 billion riders, and last year The Lion King became Broadway's first $1 billion show. Broadway's Tony Award winning musical comes to life 8 times a week in the heart of Times Square at The Minskoff Theatre."
