Musical juggernaut Disney's The Lion King is so much a part of American culture that even if you've never seen it, you'll recognize most of the songs. Simba is a young lion who one day will be king, but his uncle Scar arranges the death of King Mufasa and convinces Simba that Mufasa's death is his fault. Simba runs away to live in the jungle with new friends Timon and Pumbaa. But one day he will return to claim his throne, won't he? The Elton John and Tim Rice tunes seem to imply he can do it. Disney's The Lion King is performed at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday (April 19 to May 7) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $55 to $199.
