The Lion King

We took the munchkins to see the live performance of The Lion King this afternoon. It was an excellent production…for a Broadway play. For children's entertainment, it left a lot to be desired. I do not know if the producers advertised it as suitable for kids, but we had heard from many other parents that their children enjoyed it.

I have no idea what production they saw. We saw a production that was exactly what you would expect from a Broadway production company taking on The Lion King. For example, the performance was almost three hours long, about twice as long as we can reasonably expect our youngest to sit quietly.

I strongly recommend that only those who have seen and enjoyed a Broadway musical previously spend the money to see The Lion King.
