King of the Stage
You haven’t truly experienced Disney’s The Lion King (refer to listing, page 22) until you’ve seen Simba, Scar and Rafiki sing and dance their way across the Serengeti live on stage. The national tour of the musical blockbuster roars into the Boston Opera House beginning September 9. Broadway’s highest-grossing show has been hailed by Time magazine as “A gorgeous, gasp-inducing spectacle.” Whether this is your first time or your eighth, this breathtaking extravaganza—complete with an outstanding score by Elton John and Tim Rice and innovative direction and costume design by Newton, Mass. native Julie Taymor—will have you humming “Hakuna Matata” all the way home.
