Award-winning West End musical, The Lion King, celebrates its 12millionth visitor to performance at Lyceum Theatre.

Award-winning musical, The Lion King, has firmly secured its place as the West End’s best selling stage show after celebrating the arrival of its 12millionth visitor (that’s four million more than the entire population of London). Tickets are currently on sale for the production, to be performed at the Lyceum Theatre until March 29, 2015.

Julie Taymor’s stage adaptation of Disney’s much- loved animated film premiered on Broadway in 1997, and has since been seen by more than 70million people across six continents. In addition to the record-breaking productions in London and New York, The Lion King can be seen in Hamburg, Madrid, Tokyo, Sao Paulo and Sydney, with tours around the UK, North America and Japan.

Future productions were announced, including Mexico City and Shanghai Disney Resort. Elton John and Tim Rice have added three new numbers to the five they originally wrote for the animated film, resulting in the fusion of Western music and the distinctive sounds and rhythms of Africa.
