The award-winning musical grossed over $2 million during the week of November 21, making it the highest-grossing week of any theatrical production in the venue’s history.

This is the Lion King’s third visit to Denver. The North American Tour launched in Denver in April 2002 where it played a sold-out 10-week engagement at The Buell Theatre.

The report states that on average, Broadway tours contribute to the local metropolitan area’s economy an economic impact 3.5 times the gross ticket sales.

“The return of The Lion King to Denver and its overwhelming success is a tribute to the entire Disney Theatrical team and the incredibly talented people involved in the creation of the show,” said President and COO of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Randy Weeks. “Additionally, it is a testament to the ongoing commitment of the Disney company maintaining their productions at the highest possible standards. Is it possible that Lion King is better now than it was when it first opened here? I believe so.”
