Exhibition on The Lion King to open on Regent Street
Monday, 23 August 2010
An exhibition dedicated to West End musical The Lion King is to open at the National Geographic Store in London, it has been revealed.
Set to run from September 21st until October 17th 2010 on Regent Street, the display is the first in the country to be based entirely upon the stage show, which is currently showing at the Lyceum Theatre.
It aims to show the inspiration behind the lavish production, as well as sketches, props and models to illustrate how it went from an idea on the page to a musical enjoyed by millions.
The display is free and will also feature video screens to show interviews with the cast in order to gain even more insight into the show.
In June 2010, it was revealed that two costumes from The Lion King were to go on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum.
The masks and outfits worn by Scar and Sarabi were donated by the musical and are to go form part of the permanent collection alongside 3,500 other costumes.
