But I think I liked The Lion King-the musical-more than I liked Wicked.

Because in spite of microphone problems, and a couple of things being deleted, I loved it!

This is coming from someone who really didn't care for the movie.

It was visually stunning, riddled with Christian and LDS symbolism, funny, and deep.

I can't wait to see it on Broadway some day.

    So, where DID you see it? Inquiring minds needs to know.

    I bet it is so gorgeous. I have heard that from multiple friends. After spending a couple of summers in London heading the theater study abroad program, we fully expected decently priced tix in NYC when we were there visiting family. We wanted to take the kids to the Lion King matinee. 300 a seat was the best we could find. Yipes!

    I'm not sure if that makes me happy, or sad. I REALLY want to see Wicked, but was unable to secure tickets last year. I've been more excited to see it than anything else. Now I wonder if I've blown it up too big in my expectations.

    However, we were able to go see Lion King last week, but we decided to get the balcony seats and take the kids. Really liked it, but had a hard time seeing around all the heads and couldn't really appreciate the costumes so far away. Some day I will get to see it right down close and have the full experience (and won't be trying to keep a 6-year-old quiet).

  4. I have always wanted to see this show, and now you have just solidified this desire :) !!

    P.S. Thanks for the laughs you mailed me. You are a gem!

    Yay! So glad you got to have such an enjoyable experience!

  6. LOL. That's funny. We're seeing it this Saturday and I'm sooooooo excited!!!! Don't know if it will beat Wicked in my book, but I know it will be a visual delight!

    I think I liked Wicked better. I've seen both on Broadway but to each her own. I really really really wanna see Marry Poppins on Broadway!
