Read more about the show on PXP:
We were both so excited and this production exceeded our high expectations. I knew that I wouldn't be able to put my feelings and thoughts into words so I had to document this experience in a vlog to illustrate the joy and happiness we both felt.
My favorite song was "Shadowland" which took place when Nala was about to leave after Scar tried to make her his wife. It just told a story of remembering who you are no matter what path or what journey you take in life. It's about remembering your family, and everything that makes you - YOU.
Outside may have been raining literal hell on 42nd Street, but inside my soul was raining childhood memories. After arriving at the theater through the blistering rain, my heart couldn't help but to feel like it was at home again. Its theater home. The audience was diverse, the food was reasonably priced - like what more could you ask for during a Broadway play?
As I watched, I paid keen attention to the character of Simba. I found that we shared a lot of similarities. Like him, as I grew up I had to find my own way. My parents hadn't yet immigrated, so I had to live with other relatives. And as a child growing up, I felt like I needed my parents to be there, physically. Just like Simba after his father's death.
