It’s a mainstay on Broadway and now The Lion King has proved to be a king on the road, too.

Disney Theatrical Productions said Wednesday that the show’s total touring box office gross in North America has reached $1 billion. Producers estimate that more than 15 million theatergoers in over 70 cities across North America have seen the show since 2002.
