This July I went to see the Lion King musical with my mom, aunt and friend Nick. We met up for some drinks and food first at the Shark Club and then headed over to the Queen E.
At the beginning of the show all the animals walk in from the back for when they first present Simba, and I was sitting there with a wide-mouthed grin like a 4-year-old. There was even a huge elephant with a little kid elephant holding its tail. So cute!
The costumes were amazing... the actors were dressed up as everything from zebras, to antelope, to tall grass.
The music was obviously good... especially when you know all the words to the songs... except they threw in a few new songs in for filler. Bullshit! I was joking with Nick that maybe Elton John would pop out for a surprise performance, to which he replied that he wanted him to do: "Saturday, saturday, saturday!"
The show was actually funnier than I thought it was going to be, too. Good ol' Zazu.
This show gets two lion paws up from me, and is definitely worth the money if it comes back to Vancouver!
