Phantom of the Opera and The Lion King!!
I just saw the lion king this year for the first time, it was sooo great. I can't wait until it comes back to my area. I'm sure broadway would be better though. Next time I want to sit up high to see the animals better!
Sara, where did you see it? I just saw it in Las Vegas a few weeks ago, and I was completely blown away. African culture was well incorporated in the entire show, if anything. I really love the rearrangement of the music, and the props were gorgeous. I wish I could have seen it on Broadway, too. The stage would be much bigger. More space = greater show.
