Surely, if we told you that the Lope de Vega Theater is one of the most visited sites of Madrid, you would think that the person who wrote this article has no idea what they are talking about since the theater might be important, but there are other places with more history. However, we insist and tell you that in the last six years, three million people have passed by here – now you´re hesitating, right? We´ll stop messing with you and explain: the Lope de Vega Theater is responsible for taking on the musical of the day that is causing a frenzy in Spain, The Lion King.
Now you know what we are referring to, right? After more than 2,000 performances and already in its sixth season, this Disney work is one of the main attractions of Madrid´s Gran Vía, one of the busiest streets of the capital and one of the most difficult places to find a parking spot. In addition, the close vicinity of the Residential Priority Areas (APR), where you can´t leave your car if you aren´t a resident, reduces the risk of being fined, making parking the best option. In Parclick, you can reserve a parking space online in two minutes and choose the number of hours (or days) and the place where you want to leave your car well-looked after.
The front of the theater is one of the obligatory stopping points, and if you have the bad luck of being there when people are leaving from a performance, their delighted faces and the sensation that you are missing out on something magical will draw you in and bring you to see The Lion King. Here, you will quiet your anxieties and bring home a box of the most sought-after popcorn in Madrid.
Not everything in the Lope de Vega Theater is The Lion King, since in this 67-year-old theater has seen in its halls artists of the day and other grand musicals that have lasted longer that the announcements on TV. Before Emma Watson conquered the movie theaters, Beauty and the Beast was already a triumph in the Lope; this theater also progressed the careers of Amanda Seyfried and Meryl Street with years filled with Mamma Mia!; even Hugh Jackman and Russel Crowe were on the stage in performances of Les Miserables. Without a doubt, this model theater is not just The Lion King.
Besides performances, if you are lucky and there are few people on the street, going around Gran Vía is one of the most satisfactory madrileño pleasures. You are super close to as many fast food establishments as you can imagine; in fact, recently a business opened that serves the same hamburgers that Barack Obama scoffed down.
And since we at Parclick think of you and don´t want the mythic neon signs of Schweppes of Callao to surround you while as you curse your bad luck during a traffic jam on Gran Vía, we help you reserve a parking spot in a monitored parking deck for where and how long you need with only a click of a button.
