Written by Chief Editor.

In celebration of the 20th anniversary of The Lion King on Broadway, and to thank the city of New York for being its home for the past two decades, the show is giving away every ticket via a free lottery to the evening performance on Wednesday, November 15th, at 8 p.m. at the Minskoff Theatre.

On November 12, those interested can enter the lottery via a celebratory event in Times Square, as well as at New York Public Library, Queens Public Library, and Brooklyn Public Library locations across the five boroughs.

10 a.m.–6 p.m.: Times Square, on the plaza between 45th and 46th Streets. At the Times Square celebration, attendees will also have the chance to participate in a number of Lion King-themed activities, including a sharable photo-op inspired by the show’s “Circle of Life” moment on Pride Rock, autographs with current cast members, and an up-close look at the musical's award-winning masks and puppets.
