The most awesome experience,
Nov 22, 2006
reviewer: from Virginia
My daughter and I experienced New York for the first time Nov. '06 I have been on a high since I came home. I never knew the musical The Lion King would have such a profound affect on us. We will never forget that show or the lights of New York City!! It's another world with an atmosphere of greatness. Thank you for the 'Awesome' experience of a lifetime. Cathy Walker

My Favorite Film is also my Favorite Broadway Show,
Nov 18, 2006
reviewer: from Ann Arbor, MI USA
Ever since I was a little girl, The Lion King was always a favorite. When I heard Broadway made it into a show I was tickled pink. But then I realized it may never come to my town. However three years ago, my dream had come true. And it wasn't quite what I expected. It was phenomenal. The first thing that catches the audience's eyes are the costumes, puppets, set, choreography, and make up. While all of these are beautiful to behold, the best parts in my opinion are the songs and score. All of the singers, dancers, and actors. And of course the ever-lasting story. The music is exotic, energetic,powerful and at times even spiritual. The performances are full of joy, passion, and heart. They all bring to life the characters we know and love. And last but not least the story. The tale of a naieve but energetic child who has everything but is soon shattered. Now he must face his responsability and take his place in the Circle of Life. Get ready for all your emotions to pour out. A must see

This musical was he best thing I have ever seen. I went to New York for a funraiser for school, and got to see it. The cotumes, scenery, sets, and especially the specil effects were awesome! The actors did an excellent job. My main opinion: Perfect!

Theater charity pleas,
Nov 05, 2006
reviewer: from Garden City, NY USA
Yesterday I took my family to see ‘The Lion King’. It was a truly exhilarating experience. The creativity of the costumes, sets, choreography, and acting absolutely blew us away. All of that exhilaration was immediately dampened at the end of the play when we were held captive for 5 minutes by several actors making a plea for contributions to the Theater’s favorite charity. We lost the ‘buzz’ that cost us almost $700 (6 tickets) to achieve.


I have nothing against charity pleas; but do it before the play begins so that it doesn’t interfere with the real reason we attend theater.
