Hit broadway musical The Lion King is set to make its Bangkok premier this September.
If you’re anything like me and Circle of Life just started playing in your head, you know that Thailand is in for a treat.
The musical is being brought over by BEC-Tero Public Company Limited, the Thai entertainment conglomerate that’s previously brought such headline acts as Elton John, Ed Sheeran, Maroon 5 and 50 Cent to the kingdom.
Exact dates, location and ticket prices have yet to be revealed.
Adapted from the 1994 Walt Disney Animation Studios’ feature of the same name, The Lion King is Broadway’s third-longest-running show and the second-highest-grossing show in industry history, according to Forbes.
The musical has earned numerous awards and honor, including six Tony Awards, and features music by Sir Elton John and lyricist Tim Rice.
The musical’s Bangkok debut will follow the release of the new live-action production of the movie scheduled for release on July 19.
Guess it’s the year of the lion in Thailand.
