I saw the musical version of The Lion King for the first time yesterday. We were running a little bit behind schedule, so we basically ran to our seats. Well, we ran to the WRONG seats (thanks a lot, guy in the suit that directed us the wrong way, you fail) and then ran to our correct seats. We had a few minutes to take in the 428190583403086046023850 children that had been bused in for school field trips that we were sharing this experience with, and then the lights dimmed.

Then the curtain opened, and Rafiki started singing The Circle of Life, and I was completely entranced. Tears filled my eyes with how absolutely beautiful everything was.

I sat leaned forward, elbows on my knees, hands on my chin, for the entire 3 hours that we were there. I loved absolutely every second of it.

I'm currently searching for tickets to go again.
My mom and sister HAVE to see it.
