Disney’s massive The Lion King tour – apparently the largest theatre prodution ever to make its way across Europe – stops in Liverpool in May, and to whet our appetites some of the cast took to the Empire stage tonight for a taster.
Liverpool-born Ava Brennan as Nala, Nicholas Nkuna as Simba and Gugwanan Diamini as the scene-stealing Rafiki showcased some of the musical’s best known tunes, including Circle of Life and Can You Feel the Love Tonight. It all looked and sounded stunning. The show – now an unbelievable 17 years old – is an international smash hit that has grossed more than $5 billion, so someone’s laughing. But tonight’s snippet showed that is all not without good reason. Here’s some pics from the exclusive preview event:
There are still tickets available for the seven week Liverpool run – from May 15 to July 5. See lionking.co.uk for booking and more info.
