The Lion King breaks box office records | Highest weekly gross in Broadway history

Jenifer

The Lion King breaks its own record with a whopping $4.3 million gross over nine days, setting a new record for the highest weekly gross in Broadway history.

Reaching greater heights than ever before, The Lion King surpasses its records and makes its mark with a whopping $4.3 million over nine performances at the Minskoff in December. This is the first show to breach the $4 million mark since the pandemic-induced shutdown and the highest weekly gross in Broadway history. It is also the show’s highest-grossing run in 25 years.

On the path unwinding, The Lion King continues to soar

The Lion King is no stranger to box office records. Whether it be the stage musical version or a live-action remake, the franchise continues to find new ways to retell its Shakespearean tale. The 2019 film, a reimagining of the 1994 animated film, had the biggest domestic opening of all time for a Disney remake.

The musical, having staged over 8,500 performances, continues to break records, seemingly finding competition not in other productions, but with itself. It stands now as the third-longest-running show on Broadway and the highest-grossing Broadway production of all time, grossing nearly $2 billion on Broadway alone.

Witness The Lion King in all its immersive glory. Make use of the Minskoff seating chart to book your seats and experience this iconic musical firsthand.
