The Lion King has returned in a burst of glorious musical colour after the pandemic, and a few months ago WhatsOnStage was lucky enough to head backstage and find out more about what goes on behind-the-scenes!

Julie Taymor's adaptation of the iconic Disney classic film first opened on Broadway in 1997, coming to the West End two years later. The record-breaking piece has been closed since the onset of the pandemic, but reopened in late July 2021, when the government's roadmap permitted.

Tickets for The Lion King are on sale now.
