Back in 1994 Disney upped their live-theater game with the Broadway debut of Beauty and the Beast, their first big theatrical adaptation of a film. Since then, they’ve expanded their offerings and spread their Broadway-style goodness across the globe. The below list is intended as a resource for Disney lovers on their mission to see every live Disney musical EVER!

The Lion King

Originally making its Broadway premiere in 1997, The Lion King boasts itself as the highest-grossing Broadway show of all time. This show, based on the animated film of the same name, features a unique artistic vision of puppetry and animal-inspired costumes from Director Julie Taymor and production designer Michael Curry. Curry went on to work on a number of Disney projects including Finding Nemo – The Musical, Rivers of Light, and all stage versions of Frozen.

The Lion King features songs from the film with additional music written exclusively for the show by Lebo M, Mark Mancina, and Hans Zimmer including Morning Report, Shadowland, and One by One. The original Broadway cast recording is currently available on iTunes and Spotify.
