From The Phantom Opera to West Side Story, musical stage entertainment as we know it has been around since the 1700s. I spent a lot of time on the stage in high school, in plays and musicals myself. I have always wanted to take my kids to see the Lion King on Broadway. A few weeks ago I found out that I won't have to make the trek to New York after all because the show is finally coming to us! Here's all the details on seeing the Lion King this year as well as some other fun musicals coming our way in 2018:
