CIRCLE OF LIFE
THE LION KING
This weekend the family and I went to see the New York Broadway play, The Lion King. The play is a musical based on the 1994 Disney animated film of the same name with music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice. The musical features actors in animal costumes as well as giant, hollow puppets.
The performance was magical and awe-inspiring. The audience were captivated immediately as the character danced down the aisles in the beginning of each act. The colorful display of costumes and scenery were a delight to the eye. Excitement radiated from the audience as we interacted with the scenes occurring on stage.
The Broadway production opened at the New Amsterdam Theatre on November 13, 1997 and moved to the Minskoff Theatre in 2006. The production is one of the top 10 longest running musicals in Broadway history.
There were no photography allowed inside the theatre, but they were allowed in the lobby and outside. Below are a few of the ones I took. In some cases the lighting was not too great. Hope you enjoy them.
It’s been a long weekend with traveling to New York City and moving my granddaughter home from college, so it will take me a couple of days to recuperate and catch up on your post and comments.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
