EMOTION TWISTER SHOW

My kids grew up with the movie, watching them now as teenagers enjoy the show the way they did was quite an experience. Greatest show ever! We are looking forward to watch it once again.

THE LION KING - BREATH TAKING

My 24 year old daughter and I decided to see our first Broadway show and we picked The Lion King in NYC at the Minskoff Theatre. The Lion King has always been a family favorite Disney film. We bit the bullet and got seats up front. It was expensive but worth every penny. The opening act, Circle of Life, was the most spectacular thing we have ever seen. We both cried through it. Listening to the music and seeing the animals walk down the aisle gave us goose bumps. The costumes were engineering marvels and the actors who wore them were in character the entire time. There were so many small children in the audience and I was concerned that maybe might hear fidgeting and crying. You didn't hear a peep from anyone. Young and old were totally mesmerized. Thumbs-up for this day out. It will be one we will remember as one of those great “moments” in life.

OUR FIRST THEATRE DATE ! 2006

This was the best first theatre date EVER ! My then boyfriend/now husband took me to see this play. Words could not describe how beautiful we both felt it to be ! We had both recently lost our fathers, so this play could not have been more poetic. It really touched our hearstrings ! Thank you!

MOVING!

I sit here composing this review in the final hours before going for my THIRD time! Only this time, I am taking my 5 & 3 year old daughters who are absolutely so excited they can barely keep it together. This show is the most absolute amazing collections of costume, cast, music, and story telling I've ever seen. This is a show that I tell everyone about, beg them to go see and think to myself why anyone wouldn't want to see it! The first time I went, like most men ("stereotypical" men) didn't really have a strong desire but now I sit here awaiting my third show, and couldnt be more excited than a 6 year old on Christmas Eve!
