The Lion King. Before you ask, yes I went alone. If I had waited for people to have enough time or money to join me, I would have missed it (that’s how I missed Wicked). I had so much fun. The costumes were amazing. The choreography was spectacular. The actors (especially Nala and the cheetah) moved in a way that demonstrated power, elegance and royalty all at once. I also have to say it was refreshing to see so many talented black actors on stage. This cast and crew took my favorite childhood memory and elevated it beyond my imagination. I was blown away.
