Disney on Broadway

By Beth Deitchman

It’s time for the show to go on! Our friends at Disney on Broadway have just announced that The Lion King will return to Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre on September 14, 2021, and will be among the first shows to resume performances; while Aladdin resumes performances at Broadway’s glorious New Amsterdam Theatre on September 28, 2021. Visit DisneyOnBroadway.com for all of the details and to purchase your tickets now.

As Disney on Broadway returns, guests will discover unprecedented new benefits and flexibility, including:

  • Disney pays 100% of Ticketmaster service and order fees.
  • Guests will enjoy the freedom to exchange or even cancel tickets at no charge up to and including the day of performance.
  • Disney on Broadway is introducing the two-show package, Double the Magic, which offers the greatest savings with tickets for both shows starting at $149 total.

“After 18 months of being apart we are thrilled to welcome our audiences back and are proud to introduce these unique benefits to make buying Broadway tickets risk-free, flexible, and affordable,” said Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer, Disney Theatrical Productions. “Broadway’s reopening—before tourists fully return—will be the perfect time for us tri-staters to attend Broadway as shows will be more accessible than ever.”

Disney on Broadway is also taking its shows on the road in 2021. The North American tours of The Lion King and Frozen and international productions of five titles will be among the 20+ Disney Theatrical productions resuming performances in nine countries on four continents in 2021.

The exciting news of the September 14 return of Broadway was shared this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, with The Lion King joining Hamilton and Wicked for the announcement. The three high-profile shows came together to underscore Broadway’s commitment to ending a devastating period of hardship for the tens of thousands who make their living directly on Broadway shows and the tens of thousands in dependent industries.

The New Amsterdam and Minskoff Theatres will follow New York State and CDC guidelines to ensure the safety of all actors, production staff, theatre employees, and audience members. As public health conditions and the State’s guidance for performing arts and live entertainment change, the theatres will remain flexible and adapt to applicable health protocols, such as face coverings, health screening, enhanced air filtration and ventilation, and rigorous cleaning and disinfection.
