Lion King

We went to The Lion King last night. While it was impressive in all the ways Broadway musicals can be, I left just a little disappointed. I enjoyed it, but I wasn’t wowed for a number of reasons.

1. I didn’t enjoy it as much as Phantom of the Opera or Les Miserables. I guess I don’t like the musicals that you can bring your little kids to as much as the ones that feature darkness, death, action, and a whore house.

2. I enjoyed about three songs.

3. I got sick of the fart jokes. If you’ve seen this production you know what I mean.

4. I feel bad about this, but at the start of Act III, I just wanted Simba to kick Scar’s ass already. The end barely came soon enough.

Was it worth seeing? Yes. I might not opt for eleventh row seats next time. Something in the balcony would have been fine.

We send mics to them. Actually. I send mics to them. I hate blogging right now. Its weird but I cant get myself to write even though there is a lot to write about.

Les Miserables is one that I need to see, I heard it is astounding. Have you seen Wicked yet? The story line is pretty cool, I recommend it for sure.
