I watched The Lion King musical this weekend and was blown away. The Lion King was always one of my favorite Disney movies, and to see it on stage was amazing! The singing was superb, especially from the woman who played Rafiki. The costumes were so creative and colorful (though I could’ve gone without seeing Timon’s actor in that green suit…it didn’t really serve its purpose).
Something else that bothered me was the added Nala/Scar overtone…I think I could’ve done without that, but I suppose it added an extra nuance to the story that would’ve been inappropriate for the movie audience.
All that aside, it was a spectacular musical. If you haven’t seen it, I strongly recommend it! I mean, this was Tammy’s THIRD time watching it. That says something right?
