"The Lion King" musical breaks records in Oklahoma City
The touring production of “The Lion King” that closed May 24 in Oklahoma City brought more than 90,000 people out to the Civic Center Music Hall.
Julie Taymor’s blockbuster, award-winning adaptation of the Disney film broke records in Oklahoma City.
“With total box office sales exceeding $5.6 million, this engagement of ‘The Lion King’ is the highest grossing theatrical production in Oklahoma City’s history,” Larry Payton, president of Celebrity Attractions, said in a NewsOK story.
“Breaking the record for the number of people to see a Broadway show shines a great positive light on all of Oklahoma City.”
The musical also had a multi-million-dollar economic impact on the city. And I can attest from my own experience seeing it that “The Lion King” undoubtedly sparked imaginations and made lasting memories for the people who went to see it.
