..comes to Tampa Bay. What I’m talking about of course is Disney’s “The Lion King” the musical. I went to go see it earlier this month at the Straz center and was blown away. It was a cornucopia of theatrical wonder that could be felt all throughout the theater. Now I had gone with what I like to think was a myriad of musical theatre enthusiasts (performers and audience alike).  They were all entranced by the     captivating costumes, that are so intricate in their designs to allow the members of the casts to use even the slightest movements of puppetry to bring the animals to life. The actors movements were all so in sync with the animals they were portraying. You really couldn’t tell the difference from where the actor ended and the animals began. Theimg_0589.jpg choreography was incredible with everything so on beat and the scenery coming to life right before your eyes, you really believed that you were on the pride lands of the African savannah. The acting was superb, the emotions and inflections showed by all the actors was mesmerizing. Even when the words spoken was not in english you could still understand based on the movements and emotion expressed by the actors. This being a musical we can’t leave out the mind-blowing musical score and vocals bring down the house and make you sing the songs long after you leave the theater. This is a musical that can resonate  with everyone of all ages. So if you get a chance to see The Lion King do it, you won’t regret it!!
