Fact: "The Lion King" has been more profitable than all six "Star Wars" films combined. But at first, almost no one thought it would work.
Well, if so then I got something for you! The Broadway musical the Lion King is here in Atlanta! This past weekend I got to experience something that I have never experienced before.
These are my top 5 reasons of why you should go see Lion King the Musical at the Fox Theatre:
- It feels like the movie itself has come to life right in front of your eyes! Everything feels so real. The actors come down the aisles in their costumes and just dance and sing right in front of you!
- The costumes, carved masks and intricate makeup are beautiful and it really transports you to the gorgeous vistas of the African savanna.
- It brings back childhood memories. Like I said before, childhood memories are a big part of your life. The things thatyou should cherish and love all start with your childhood.
- It is family friendly and children will definitely enjoy it. Parents, I highly recommend taking your children with you to see the show. It will give your child a fun brand new experience that he/she will have never seen before.
- The theme and moral of the story is something that every human being can relate. Life and all the changes we experience as we search for our place in life. The story teaches that no matter how much those changes may scare us, we can not run from our responsibilities forever. It is only by facing the past, ghosts and challenges and being brave that we may find true happiness.
