A week ago I went to London for my birthday to see probably the best show I’ve ever seen. It was amazing and the props were spectacular. I’ve never seen anything like it before. It was simply breathtaking.
Disney’s The Lion King was a film i watched lots as a child. I had an original Disney store soft Simba toy which you could turn from cub to an adult by pulling his hidden mane up which I loved. This was a perfect present for me.
I wore a bright orange off the shoulder dress with a Lion King necklace my sister brought me for my birthday from; https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SandyKissesUK. I was so happy with it.
We arrived thirty minutes early giving ourselves time to buy a drink, find our seats and visit the merchandise stall. I always buy a programme from every show I see so I knew I was getting one, I brought both the big programme with pictures and the little one with information. I collect magnets from places I visit so brought the golden lions head magnet. Also a beaker cup with straw, fleece blanket and a canvas bag.
We sat in the front row on the Royal circle in seats A19 and A20, it felt quite crowded and you didn’t have much leg room. As the show started I was unaware of how it would start and was totally blown away. I don’t want to spoil it for others so I won’t say too much. But I will say that I was so blown away I felt emotional and held back my happy tears. The beginning was definitely my favourite part of the show, it was magnificent. The costumes were amazing, singing fantastic and the whole performance was elegant.
The children playing Simba and Narla were amazing, such talent at a young age. My favourite character was Rafiki played by Brown Lindiwe Mkhize, she had an amazing voice and made everyone laugh. Also Zazu played by Gary Jordan he was brilliant.
Overall the performance was stunning. Its a must see show and I’d highly recommend it to everyone. I’d definitely go again to watch it.
