Broadway Buzz: The Lion King Kicks Off the Memphis Open Plus an Orpheum-Only Ticket Discount
The Memphis Open kicked off on Tuesday night with an exhibition match pitting Pro Tennis Hall of Famer and 1997 Memphis Open champion Michael Chang against former world No. 4 and 2002 Memphis Open finalist James Blake.
And to help get the festivities get going at this year's tournament, guests at the Racquet Club were treated to another world-class performance: cast members of Disney's The Lion King performing three of the musical's beloved songs.
Cast members Tshidi Manye (Rafiki), Blaine Alden Krauss (Simba) and Nia Holloway (Nala) will perform "Circle of Life," "Endless Night" and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" live on the court. Check on the video above!
Nia will return to the Memphis Open Friday to sing the national anthem. The tournament is celebrating its partnership with The Lion King with a special discount offer for Orpheum fans only!
