PostHeaderIcon Lion King Visiting Schenectady, about to Roar in Proctors

Lion King will be Visiting Schenectady’s Proctors Theatre from February 22, 2011.

CEO Philip Morris predicted in December that “The Lion King” would sell out Proctors in Schenectady NY —a first for a month-long run at the theater. Now, with less than two weeks to go before the curtain rises on the Disney spectacular, Morris is not backing away from his prediction even though about 5,000 seats are still available.

The Lion King opens its 32-show run in Proctors Theatre on February 22, 2011 and Perform thru March 20, 2011.

The show should be a good antidote to the winter doldrums for downtown restaurants and other businesses.

Still, the term “sellout” isn’t always what it seems in the theater world, which seems appropriate for an industry built on illusion.

Because of obstructions in the extravagant show, Proctors cannot sell every seat in the house. Some seats are also held back in case of a last-minute problem, like a seat breaking after a matinee.

All told, Morris said there are 80,100 seats for “Lion King” over the course of 32 shows (were it not for obstructions and reserves, 84,544 seats would be available).

Even if not all 80,100 seats get snapped up, Morris said it would still be considered a “sellout” in the theater industry if Proctors comes within a percentage point of the total.

Stage hands have been busy stripping the historic theater of hanging lights and screens to prepare for the show. Trucks carrying props and other equipment are expected to roll into town on Sunday, Feb. 12.
