The Lion King

Original Broadway Production (1997)

Trivia & History

Transferred to the Minskoff to make way for the Broadway production of Mary Poppins.

After a two-year battle, Actors Equity stepped in out of concern for the heavy costumes that the actors were having to wear. Several actors sustained chronic injuries because of the weight of the costumes. Disney was forced to rebuild some of the headdresses and puppets so that they were lighter.
