I defy anyone not to get emotional within 60 seconds of watching the start of this show. I was blessed to be amongst a lucky few to witness the unveiling of this world acclaimed show at QPAC on Friday night. I knew it had rave reviews but unless you see, hear and feel the show in the ‘flesh’ then a review is just a review.
I was in awe at the costuming, stage design, dance choreography, storyline and cast as they transported us across the African savannah into Pride Rock. I remember watching the movie with Sir Elton’s famous soundtrack. Now, as a more mature man Disney took me back to those magical movie moments shown on the big screen.
The cast was amazing. Rafiki was my favourite simply because her voice carried you through the show. The dancing was choreographed to match the animals movements and in keeping with the storyline and placement of the production.
I can’t pick any faults. Credit must be given to all involved for bringing this marvellous show to Brisbane. Please support the show. Sell anything you don’t need and buy a ticket. It’s an experience of a lifetime.
