Lion King at Historic Orpheum Theatre

Lion King revisits the Twin Cities this fall with more than one month of performances at the Historic Orpheum Theatre downtown Minneapolis. The shows start this week and are basically sold out through Ticketmaster. However, it is still possible to buy tickets online from Ticket King. There were VIP seats available in the first ten rows of the main floor that come with some sort of souvenir. The face value of that type of seat is $140/ticket. Ticket King is currently selling those for around $250/ticket. It is definitely expensive but it is the price that you have to pay if you want to see this Broadway classic in your home town. I did notice that you can get a bargain on Orpheum Theatre Tickets for Lion King this weekend. Maybe by holding out, the prices will also drop on future performances?
