The Lion King Manila

The Lion King Manila

“Hakuna Matata!”

I have been defiant to see The Lion King on stage, I have qualms as to how they will translate scenes from the jungle to the stage. Though I remember being astonished when I watched “Phantom of the Opera” and didn’t expect how they did magic on the boat on the water scene.

But then, one of my favorite characters is Simba and Rafiki. Not to forget these cute tandem: Timon & Pumba! =)

So after seeing it, I just kept on admiring the brains behind all the stage plays I’ve seen. How they bring scenes to life. How they evoke emotions. How they attain recognition with so much ease.

We weren’t able to squeeze ourselves to those huge posters for our souvenir photos, we’re in a hurry to get home because my mom is sick. I almost couldn’t post this.

PS

There was a standing ovation. Kudos to everyone who made this show possible. We’re looking forward to the next!
