'The Lion King' Poised to Become Broadway’s First Musical to Bank $1 Billion. I just want to post so we can talk in billions! That doesn’t happen a lot in live entertainment, so congratulations to Tom Schumacher and the rest of the Disney gang. Things like this don’t happen easily or automatically or because of the automatic imprimatur of the Disney brand. They happen because the organization involved is delivering for audiences in special way. Well done.
