The Lion King
The musical The Lion King holds a special place in my heart. The first time I saw it was not on Broadway but here in Atlanta. When I lived in New York I just thought it might be corny and didn’t bother to see it. Once I had my son, I wanted to expose him to the arts and see what the hoopla was all about. My moms group had a trip and although I missed the group purchase, I got a seat (which by the way was awesome and up front) for my son and I. We both loved it! My son stayed awake for the entire thing - which is saying a lot because he was only 1 at the time.
Fast forward to last week and we once again had the opportunity to enjoy the musical but this time I knew he’d be better able to appreciate it. Since that first show he has been exposed to the Lion King, there was a run of the Lion King experience at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom that we’ve seen a few times, but quite frankly nothing compares to the show.
We both loved it! I know I had a childlike cheesy grin on my face the entire time and although it was a late night for us and my son was a little tired, he stayed awake again and had a ball. The Lion King is here as part of Broadway in Atlanta and if you haven’t seen the show I highly recommend it. The show is running until April 27th so hurry up and get your tickets, you won’t regret it!
Disclosure: I received media tickets for The Lion King but all opinions are my own.
