When I first heard that my group that was traveling to NY was going to the Lion King, I was a little nervous, becasue I figured it would be a childrens type play. But as soon as the show started, I knew that I would enjoy it. Some of the scenes were so breath-taking and amazing that tears came to my eyes, and I got goose-bumps. The whole thing just went by so fast, but it was still, by far, the best musical that I have seen. The cast did an great job, and I have been telling everyone that I know that they have to see it for themselves. Thank you so much... for the preformance... a memory that I wil never forget.

To The Cast of The Lion King on June 4, 2008 @ 2pm. My daughters 8th grade class came to see the Lion King for their graduation from Phila. I had never seen or had ever been to a play in my life. When you came to philadelphia I did not get a chance to come so being an escort for my daughter and her friends was my excuse to come. I can trully say i am a big kid at heart and the Lion King was one of my favorite movies. What I am trying to say is that when I looked up and saw the cast members coming down the isle at the start of the show I actually started to cry, that was how touched I was. I am so blessed to have been given the opportunity to see this remarkable play that I would suggest it to anyone. On top of seeing the lion king coming to New York was my first as well so I did not know where to start and not enough time. I only wished that I had gotten a chance to meet a couple of cast members so they could have autographed my program. Words could never express my heart Chell

New York was a brilliant experience as a whole but The Lion King was the highlight of my holiday. The first scene is just out of this world, it gave me goose bumps and tears in my eyes. I new the show would but good but it was excellent!

From first note to last this was a spellbinding show. The costumes were amazing and so cleverly designed. The music, dancing and singing was out of this world. New York was the cake and the Lion King was the cherry on top. What a night!!
