And Now without further ado....
Ok, so... I have just returned from what may probably have been the FUNNEST afternoon of my life!
For christmas my grandparents decided to get me tickets to go see the Broadway Production of Disney's The Lion King, which was coming to Austin from January 16th, through February 10th.
I went today for the afternoon Matinee showing of it and well, my mind was completely blown, everything about the show was absolutely stunning, the costumes, the props, the puppets, ALL OF IT....
I sat in Orchestra Section Row J near the inside aisle, so i was literally within touching distance of over half the cast as they walked right by me to get to the stage!
The Movie rendition of the animated film lasts somewhere around an hour and a half I believe if memory serves correctly...
The Musical Production however lasted 2 and a half hours with extra songs, extra content and a more in depth story!
There is not a single negative thing I could EVER say about the production of the lion king musical and it has all of my praises, given the chance I would go and see it again in a heart beat.
As a memento to the occasion i spent roughly 100$ on merchandise
I got a Tee shirt, a musical Snow globe, a Beanie Nala, and A tote bag to carry it all in.
I was so excited that I put the shirt on right there on the spot.
I was later even more surprised when my grandfather went to get gifts for everyone else in the family who couldn't be there with us, and returns to me with a Limited Edition plus size Simba Plushie.
All in all this made for one HELL of an awesome afternoon that I will NEVER forget.
