About Disney's The Lion King

Be prepared for the arrival of The Lion King to the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco. The multi-award-winning hit Disney musical welcomes West Coast audiences into the circle of life with mesmerizing staging, iconic music, and a soaring story for people of all ages.

Three years after Disney released the classic Lion King film in 1994, the musical adaptation debuted on the New York stage and has ruled everything the light touches ever since. The story of Simba, a young lion cub who must learn how to become the rightful and honorable ruler of the African Pridelands, proves timeless, touching generation after generation.

That's due in large part to the stirring songs by Elton John and Tim Rice, which roar to life on stage more spectacularly than ever. Hear all the classics from the movie, like "Can You Feel the Love Tonight," "Be Prepared," and "Circle of Life," alongside equally touching tunes unique to the stage show.

The Lion King highlights

The Lion King, directed by Julie Taymor, won six Tony Awards upon its 1997 Broadway premiere, including Best Musical. That same production is the one at the Orpheum, now featuring a fresh cast, but still with the music, story, and stagecraft that continue to win over generation after generation of audiences.

  • The circle of life shows no signs of stopping. The New York production is the third-longest running show in Broadway history, and the London one is the eighth-longest-running show in West End history.
  • Puppetry brings the wilderness alive. Director/designer Julie Taymor won awards for creating the intricate puppets, which evoke African animals while still showing the actors' faces and bodies. The visuals are like nothing else on stage before or since.
  • BroadwaySF is king of musicals. BroadwaySF, the organization putting on The Lion King at the Orpheum, is known for staging Broadway's most celebrated shows on multiple Bay Area stages. If you're looking for high-quality entertainment in San Francisco, you're in good hands.
