The Lion King
I had seen this show before but had forgotten how amazing it was. The opening scene really sets the mood for the rest of the play, as people are transformed into magnificent African animals. We had great seats as the creatures walked rights passed us in the aisle all throughout the play. The show was a literal feast for the eyes. I could not figure out how these costumes where made. Not only were they beautiful to look at, but it blew my mind how they flowed so seamlessly with the actor.
I was unaware throughout the play if Pat was enjoying himself. However, I was so excited that when it ended he said he really enjoyed it and was blown away by it all, just as I was.
I am so glad that we were able to see this play. It was so fun to finally experience our first Broadway show together in NYC.
