The Lion King on Broadway

“Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase!”

This weekend, I went with my family and a friend to see the Lion King on Broadway. It was, of course, fantastic. I appreciated that they used the original score but added authentic African music to the performances along with traditional African dress. The character costumes were incredibly creative as well. This performance is great for kids and the kids get a little culture at the same time. Perfect.I must make a special note regarding the actress that plays Rafiki; her voice… was… stunning. It gave me goosebumps every time.

During the opening act, Circle of Life, my 9 year old daughter said, “It’s so beautiful, I kind of want to cry.” Awwww…I knew exactly what she meant with that comment.  Inside I was secretly elated hoping she really will be a lover of the arts! She already loves music, plays, dancing, and drawing…and now she can appreciate the performances that same way.

I’ve always hoped my kids would share my passion for the arts.
