So it’s almost time for Simba and co to come to Birmingham! The Lion King opens at Birmingham Hippodrome next Friday (the 28th June). It’s the big summer show this year, running until September 28th. Having seen the show in London I can assure you that it is a fantastic production that brings the classic film to life. I still need to get my tickets for the tour (hint, hint to any generous readers!) but let me know what you think if you see it.
I came across this video on YouTube – it’s by an amazingly talented guy called Nick Pitera who has done several videos in which he performs as multiple people – including a lot of Disney. In this video, made to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the Broadway production, he got a little bit of help to make a special Lion King video…. Enjoy!
