I SAW IT AGAIN!!

wow. last night i saw the lion king (again) at the opera house in boston. i just wanna say, IT WAS AMAZING!!

review:
got to the theatre to find there were three understudies:
- nala
- pumbba
- zazu
i really liked the three i saw before, but i was glad to see new people. they were all incredible.
nala was the best. her vocals were awesome and her "shadowland" and "can you feel the love tonight" were perfect. almost a good, if not better, than the OBCR.
the pumbba was great. i like the other one better, but this one seemed to be a little more into the show.
the zazu was the perfect understudy, and fit the category of understudy. his singing was a little weak, but his lines were AWESOME!!
there was a new simba: wallace smith. he was perfect, his "endless night" was better than the OBCR's. and his was just perfect.
then there was the rest of the cast i saw:
- scar was amazing, and he fit the role perfectly.
- mufasa was the same as before: great singing but a little choppy on lines.
- shenzi, banzi and ed were AWESOME!! i loved the first two, and ed kept on making me and dana crack up!!
- rafiki: I LOVE RAFIKI SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!! SHE WAS AWESOME AND I WISH I COULD HEAR HER EVERDAY!!
- the ensamble: great vocals!! i was so moved and impressed.

i wanna see it again before it leaves... someone take me!!

that's so great!! I'm going to see TLKoB for the first time at the end of Nov. in Seattle...I've been dying to see it for years, so this is incredibly exciting. Hearing people talk about how great the show is gets me even more pumped up for the event. :)

(I'm particularly excited to see the "Endless Night" scene...that's one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard).
i'd love to see it again. enjoy the show... i cryed during one part... in act two. you'll know when you see it!
