This week, On Stage celebrates the 20th anniversary of “The Lion King” on Broadway.

  • Disney Theatrical Group President Tom Schumacher gives Frank DiLella a backstage tour at the Minskoff Theater. 
  • We profile “Lion King” director Julie Taymor; talk to members of the current and past cast, including one member who has been in the show all 20 years; and we sit down with Lebo M., the African musician who wrote the original music and arrangements and performed in the original cast of “The Lion King.” 
  • Plus, NY Post theater guru Michael Riedel talks about his first time seeing “The Lion King” out of town – an experience he described as the single-most exciting moment he’s ever had in the theater - and Roma re-reviews the show 20 years after doing the same for NY1.
