Disney’s The Lion King: Broadway at the Eccles

The Lion King holds a special place in my heart. Back in 2011, I was invited to walk the “green” carpet in Los Angeles for the re-release of The Lion King in 3D. I was treated to some phenomenal experiences, which you can read all about here. I, however, have yet to see The Lion King on the stage! I can’t wait to remedy that when Disney’s The Lion King comes to Salt Lake City at the end of the month. One of the add-ons to the Broadway at the Eccles 2022-2023 season, we are fortunate to get the opportunity to take our families and see this epic tale. Just looking at the costumes and sets gets me excited to experience it for myself.

A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, THE LION KING is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands. Born into the royal family, precocious cub Simba spends his days exploring the sprawling savanna grasslands and idolizing his kingly father, Mufasa, while youthfully shirking the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king. A vibrant and exciting tale from the great creatives at Disney, THE LION KING is a story of love and redemption that nobody should miss.
