Join us for The Actors Fund Special Performance of The Lion King!

Experience the stunning visual artistry, the unforgettable music and the exhilarating choreography of this musical theater phenomenon—one of the most awe-inspiring productions ever brought to life on stage. A remarkable tale of hope and adventure, THE LION KING has found its way into the hearts of millions. As The New York Times says, “There is simply nothing else like it.”

Winner of six Tony Awards® including Best Musical, Disney’s THE LION KING showcases the talents of one of the most acclaimed creative teams on Broadway. Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor reimagines the popular story using some of the theater’s most extraordinary stagecraft. THE LION KING also features the exceptional work of Tony Award-winning choreographer Garth Fagan and a glorious score crafted by the Tony Award-winning songwriting team of Elton John and Tim Rice.

We are delighted to acknowledge, with deepest appreciation, the ongoing support The Actors Fund receives from the Broadway community.  Please join us in giving a round of applause to the unions, producers, theatre operators, and members of the following organizations who make Special Performances possible by waiving their compensation to help The Actors Fund continue its vital work:

  • Actors' Equity Association 
  • Associated Musicians of Greater New York, Local 802 AFM
  • Association of Theatrical Press Agents and Managers
  • Society of Stage Directors and Choreographers 
  • United Scenic Artists Union


Actors Fund Special Performances have been thrilling audiences for more than 80 years with an electric energy unlike any other night of theatre! What makes a Special Performance so "special"? Each year, Broadway companies, in New York and on the road, generously give their time and talent by adding a performance to already rigorous schedules to benefit The Actors Fund.
