Behind-the-scenes video from London's biggest theatre shows
We go backstage at the city's top plays and musicals to meet the people who give the West End its sparkle
Disney's The Lion King
Director Julie Taymor’s ‘The Lion King’ is now in its fourteenth year at the Lyceum Theatre and is still one of the West End’s most popular shows. This has much to do with the heart-rending story of Simba, made famous by the 1994 Disney animation, and the famous score penned by Elton John and Tim Rice. Head of production Richard Oriel, who has worked on the show since its arrival in London, takes Time Out on a backstage safari, introducing us to some of the team responsible for the costumes and innovative puppetry techniques that bring the savannah to the stage in such breathtaking fashion.
