Disney’s The Lion King

Lyceum Theatre - 21 Wellington St, London, WC2E 7RQ

£33

Starts at
08/24/2021 - 04/03/2023

Disney’s The Lion King is the much-loved musical stage adaptation of the hugely successful animated film. Disney’s award-winning musical is now in its 20th triumphant year at London’s Lyceum Theatre, having entertained over 15 million theatregoers and become the West End’s sixth longest-running musical of all time. Set against the majesty of the Serengeti, the awe-inspiring musical is directed by Julie Taymor, who also designed the Olivier Award-winning costumes that transform the stage and auditorium of the Lyceum Theatre into the African plains. Occupied by lions, giraffes, birds, zebras, hyenas and even a stampede of wildebeest, the show is perhaps most famous for its Circle Of Life opening number, which provides one of the most spectacular sights and atmospheres in the West End. When the young lion prince Simba is born, his evil uncle Scar is pushed back to second in line to the throne. Unimpressed with his future prospects, Scar plots to kill both Simba and his father, Mufasa, becoming king in the process. Young Simba survives the heinous plot but is led to believe that his father died because of him. Devastated, he flees the kingdom and soon finds a carefree life. But without a real king, the pride soon falls on hard times and a hero is needed to bring back prosperity. Released in 1994, The Lion King quickly became one of Disney’s most popular modern movies. At the 1995 Oscars it won the awards for Best Music: Original Score for Hans Zimmer’s score and Best Music: Original Song for Elton John and Tim Rice’s Can You Feel The Love Tonight. Two of the film’s other songs – Circle Of Life and Hakuna Matata – were also nominated. Both score and songs feature in the stage musical adaptation, along with some new material. The musical adaptation debuted at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis, Minnesota, going on to win six Tony Awards when it opened on Broadway at the New Amsterdam Theatre in 1997. The show transferred to the Lyceum Theatre in October 1999, where it was nominated for eight Olivier Awards, and it participated at the Royal Variety Performance in 1999 and 2008 in the presence of the Royal Family. A spectacular stage production in which astounding spectacle, uplifting heart and beloved music and lyrics combine, Disney’s The Lion King is not to be missed.

£32

Starts at
08/24/2021 - 06/26/2022

From humble beginnings in Nutbush, Tennessee, to the global Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Tina – The Tina Turner Musical is the new biographical musical which follows the story of a global icon, featuring her much loved songs. Presented in association with Tina Turner herself, Tina-The Tina Turner Musical was nominated for Best New Musical at the Olivier Awards 2019 with Mastercard. Throughout her career, Tina Turner didn’t just break the rules, she rewrote them. This new stage musical, directed by the internationally acclaimed Phyllida Lloyd, reveals the untold story of a woman who dared to defy the bounds of her age, gender and race. One of the world’s best-selling artists of all time, Tina Turner first rose to fame in the 1960s, partnering with her then-husband Ike Turner, achieving great acclaim for their live performances and catalogue of hits. The duo’s releases at the time included the likes of A Fool In Love (1960) and River Deep – Mountain High (1966). Divorce from Ike followed in 1978, with Tina Turner going on to enjoy an international solo career which saw her win 11 Grammy Awards. Her string of hits included Let’s Stay Together (1983), What’s Love Got To Do With It (1984 – Tina’s biggest hit, winning four Grammy Awards, including Record of the Year), The Best (1988), I Don’t Wanna Fight (1993) and the Bond theme tune GoldenEye (1995). A Tina Turner musical has long been suggested for the theatre – her biographical film was released in 1993, and she has also starred in numerous major movies, including opposite Mel Gibson in the 1985 action film Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. The revered singer was introduced into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1991 and has often been voted as one of the most successful female Rock ‘n’ Roll artists of all time. Her live shows have been seen by millions, with more concert tickets sold than any other solo performer in music history. Tina – The Tina Turner Musical made its stunning world premiere at the Aldwych Theatre in April 2018, written by Olivier Award-winning playwright Katori Hall, and continues to have West End audiences revelling in Simply The Best iconic sounds.

The Book Of Mormon

Coventry Street, London, W1D 6AS

£23

02/11/2022 - 05/28/2022

The Book Of Mormon is a nine-time Tony-winning, multi-Olivier awarded and Grammy-getting musical. Playing at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre, it continues to have West End audiences knocking on its door. Have you joined the mission? Written by the animated sitcom’s creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, along with Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez, The Book Of Mormon is a satirical musical that takes shots at everything from organised religion to consumerism, the state of the economy and the musical theatre genre itself. The show tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries who travel to Africa to preach the Mormon religion, only to discover they have a lot more to learn about the real world than they have to teach about Mormonism. When the pair of opposites land in a poverty-stricken, crime-riddled and disease-filled village in Uganda, the enigmatic over-achiever and prideful Mormon Elder Price learns that charms and good looks don’t get you far. As for his awkward and enthusiastic partner Elder Cunningham; well, he’s just happy to have a friend and be included in something. Thousands of miles from Salt Lake City and facing the biggest of reality checks, Elder Price’s faith is shaken. He must convince himself of the scriptures he’s preaching before he can convert any of the locals who are more concerned with war, famine, and AIDS than Mormonism. However, armed with his own interpretation of the Book and an innocent disposition, Elder Cunningham thrives… sort of.

Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cinderella

166 Drury Lane, Holborn, London WC2B 5PW

£25

Starts at
02/11/2022 - 05/29/2022

Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cinderella, is a new romantic musical comedy featuring an original story and book by 2021 OSCAR winner Emerald Fennell (Promising Young Woman) and lyrics by Tony & Olivier award winner David Zippel (City of Angels). Laurence Connor (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, School of Rock) directs with choreography by Joanne Hunter. Welcome to Belleville! The most aggressively picturesque town in the history of the world, populated exclusively with gorgeous townsfolk who stop at nothing to achieve perfection. Belleville is fairy tale come to life: a place where you can’t move without falling over a wishing well or a quivering milkmaid. Maintaining this façade is a full time job, and one that is taken very seriously indeed. The only person steadfastly refusing to live in the fairy tale is Cinderella, loud-mouthed, dripping with disdain, and more likely to roast Hansel and Gretel for dinner than play the demure and downtrodden maid, Cinderella is desperate to escape. But underneath it all, the loneliness that comes with being the town pariah is wearing on her. It doesn’t help that her only friend, Prince Sebastian, has suddenly become the heir to the throne after the mysterious disappearance of his elder brother: sex god and charisma machine, Prince Charming. Suddenly thrust into the spotlight, the formerly shy and somewhat-less-sex-goddish Sebastian seems to be quickly growing into his brother’s enormous britches, and out of his friendship with Cinderella. But this change of circumstances also introduces something else to the relationship, a new spark which neither of them quite know what to do with. Could it be that these two old friends mean more to one another than they are willing to let on? After a devastating PR disaster for Belleville, and with the threat of the guillotine glinting on the horizon, the Queen decides that the only thing to save the town (and her pretty neck) is a Royal Wedding: something colourful and distracting so the peasants don’t get too revolution-y. All looks lost for the blossoming romance, until Cinderella meets The Godmother, who can fix any problem with a little incision and a couple of broken ribs. Maybe the answer lies where Cinderella has been refusing to look: in becoming the identikit beauty that everyone has always told her to be.
