The Lion King

We went to see "The Lion King" today (the "real life" version, on stage). It was so much fun to see it through the girls' eyes. They were astounded by the animals and really enjoyed it. Yes, I know you're not supposed to take pictures and this is the only one of the two that turned out (if you can call it that). But, there it is.

It was an awesome production. The animals are unbelievable. It's amazing to think someone in some production meeting went "what if we make people to look like animals?" I think that production meeting went something like this:

Person #1: What if we use people to make the animals come to life? Elephants, giraffes, lions, etc? What if we have them walk down the aisles through the audience?

Person #2: Sure, we can do that.

Person #3: What if we make half the stage lift up?

Person #2: Sure, why not?

Person #1: What if we use people to make grass, flowers, vines, etc.?

Person #2: We can so do that!

Person #3: Person 2, are you on drugs, or can you really do that?

Person #2: Well, I just don't see why it can't be done.

That's how I imagine the production meeting going. I hope you enjoyed it.
