After months of being closed, shows have started to reopen and return to Broadway.
We’ve already shared a look at the vaccination and testing requirements for Broadway shows, and the dates that 2 Disney on Broadway shows will return. But, what if you can’t make it to New York? No problem! You can actually be a part of the grand re-opening of one classic Disney on Broadway show right from the comfort of your couch!
The award-winning Disney musical The Lion King is set to return to Broadway soon! Want to join in on all the fun of this show’s reopening night? Then you’ll want to tune into @disneyonbroadway on TikTok for a LIVE event from the Minskoff Theatre.
On Tuesday (September 14th) at 7PM ET, head to the Disney on Broadway TikTok account for a LIVE performance of the opening number from the show — Circle of Life — in celebration of the show’s return to Broadway. There will also be a special pre-show hosted by Adrienne Walker (Nala), as well as an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the people who bring the The Lion King show to life!
It is time. Join us on September 14th for a special live stream of our first performance! 🦁 #thelionkingbroadway
The TikTok LIVE event is being held in support of The Actors Fund. According to Disney, The Actors Fund has actually “provided more than $22.6 million in direct financial assistance to more than 16,600 people since the beginning of the Broadway shutdown.”
So, if you’re a big fan of The Lion King, live theater, or just Disney in general, be sure to set your calendars for this special performance!
