THE LION KING!!!

Let me just start by saying if you ever have a chance to go see Lion King on Broadway please take advantage! This was an amazing play from beginning to end.

We had even better seats then I remember purchasing, and were in the lower orchestra section in the 3 edge seats. This was made even more awesome when in the opening number "The Circle of Life" all the animals came down the aisle to the right of us... we were so close we could have touched them if we wanted to. As much of a nerd as I may be, I actually started crying during this song. The whole thing was just too wonderful to even begin to describe.

The costumes were so wonderful, and elaborate! I cant even begin to imagine who had the creativity to think those things up. The masks on some of the characters moved along with them, and were just incredible to say the least.

My favorites were Raffiki, and Zazzu... I think Raffiki had to have the most magnificent singing voice I have ever had the privilege of hearing, and Zazzu was just hilarious!

Needless to say we had a blast at the play and cant wait for all the new Broadway plays they are bringing to town. Some of the ones we are especially interested in are "Legally Blonde The Musical", and "The Wizard of Oz". I cant even tell you how excited I am for these to come to town. I can honestly say that I have no problem paying a high ticket price to see such an amazing on stage performance! I hope you all can have a chance to see this one day! It was completely and totally worth it in every single way!
