The Lion King opened on Broadway in 1997 under the direction of Julie Taymor, who won the 1998 Tony Award for Best Direction of a Musical, becoming the first woman in Broadway history to win the category. The musical received six Tony Awards in total and continues to play Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre. Aladdin, which opened in 2014, continues to play the New Amsterdam Theatre. Completing its run in 2020, Frozen played 825 performances at the St. James Theatre and is currently touring the U.S. and playing London’s West End.
