Friday and Saturday I was at the Cadillac Palace Theatre and got to see Disney’s THE LION KING. What a treat, to watch the opening number and see everyone in the audience with faces of astonishments of the ingenious work of Julie Taymor’s Giraffes, Elephants, a whole world come to life, an audience transformed, an experience not to be missed.

And one of those moments where the critics all agree – check out these amazing reviews:
