The Lion King, the musical created by Roger Allers and Irene Mecchi, continues to maintain its success, not only in our country but even in 19 countries on five continents. And this work – the lion king book, which has been translated into 7 different languages, has captured the attention of an audience really varied, leading him to become the highest grossing show in history last September 2014, with $ 6,200 million worldwide.
Despite being released in 1997 in the famous New York Broadway Street, it was not until October 20, 2011 when The Lion King arrived at Madrid’s Teatro Lope de Vega, with an extraordinary team of 130 workers. Since then he has not stopped growing different successes, making the show even more revenue earned in the world, beating film productions as well known as Titanic or Avatar, or renowned musicals as The Phantom of the Opera. Its weekly average revenue is about a million dollars.
