The Lion King

100_3923 Sunday afternoon I went to see The Lion King, the theater play from Broadway, although I didn't saw it on Broadway... I saw it in the "Auditorio Nacional" in Mexico City.

Back in 2005 when I went to New York City I tried to see it, but was not able to get tickets. So Sunday I've finally got my chance to see it.

The show was beautiful. Everything was spectacular, from the costumes, to the music, to the production. Even for a tour show, no details were left unattended. The show was presented in it's original language (thanks!) with Spanish subtitles on the video screens. The "Auditorio Nacional" it's a fairly large venue, it accommodates up to 5,500 persons for a theater play, so even if you don't get the same feeling you'll get in a smaller theater in Broadway, it was a very good experience.
