Lion King Goes To China

Disney will stage a full production of The Lion King in China. The show will take up residence in Shanghai. The show will be performed in English at the Shanghai Grand Theater, a city-owned operation. “It will require three Boeing 747s to move the set from its current home in Melbourne, and a team of 136 people to stage each show. ‘We expect over 150,000 people will see this live show in China. … We hope to sell out’.”
