    I thought about starting it.... but I knew it would just get me in trouble You're the best person to start it anyway

    Really hoping to see it again. I've seen it twice now, over here in Melbourne when we drove eight hours each way to get there just to see it (birthday present!) and in Orlando, when I went with Pat and we got lost on the way home in some seedy neighbourhood If our planned roadtrip goes to plan, should be getting to see it in Vegas Thank goodness they extended the season there!

    I don't think I'm ever gonna get the chance to see this show. It's always so far away in other states and such, time and money would play a big part of that too. Maybe some time it could be on dvd.

    I've seen it twice now. The first time in London for the Lea meet in 2006, and the second time with Leor last June, also in London. It's a real awesome show, and I would definitely see it again at some point. I would recommend it to anyone, not just TLK fans.

    EDIT: Oh, and first post here! Yay!

    I saw it in London 2006.
    I thought the first have was "boring", not really boring, but definatly not as good as the second part.

    Mainly because of the youngsters who played Simba & Nala.
    Nala totally had an attitude, haha, probably because of the Brittish accent she had, lol, and the singing wasn't all that eather from those 2.

    But the second half had all the beautiful songs in it

    Lea Members I've met...
    LKD 1x, Sharifu 2x, STM 2x, This Land 8x, Lucy 11x, Amy 1x, LKS 2x, KanuTGL 1x, Dani 2x, Dan 2x
    Shadow 1x, King Simba 2x, Nephilim 1x, Naline 1x, jazzybbunny 3x, cleargreenwater 1x, HasiraKali 1x, Vidan 1x

    With his mouth closed, he's actually a handsome guy ...

    But when smiling, he freaks you out

    I've been lucky enough to see it three times the first time, my family and I drove 8 hours to see it - we saw it that night and drove back the next day. The second time I saw it in NYC and was extremely lucky - I got to go on a backstage tour! I help Rafiki's stick, sat on the sets, all sorts of stuff, it was awesome and very thorough. The costume rooms are stuffed! Most recently I saw TLKoB in Vancouver, where I live, and it was amazing as always, however they did cut out the morning report for some reason, probably because it was a smaller stage. I've noticed differences in every performance, which is kinda cool. Hoping to see it again in about a year in NYC again when I go visit there with my boyfriend

    When did you see it in Vancouver? They recently cut Morning Report from Las Vegas and Broadway.

    They did whaaaaaat?

    Why did they cut it? I mean, it wasn't my favorite scene or anything, but do you know what made them to decide to remove it? I saw it in August so that's probably the reason why.

    I don't think they ever said exactly why it was cut. I remember reading about them wanting to keep it "fresh" and, for some reason, cutting Morning Report was the way to do that.

    huh. That's kinda strange. Everytime i've seen the play, they've choreographed the fight scene differently, but I guess more change was wanted. I don't really see how the removal of a song is keeping it fresh though - especially one they went and put into the movie's revised version :P

    I saw the show once on Broadway in Detroit. My host mom got the tickets as a Christmas gift. It was amazingly awesome, and I'm happy I got to see it at least once. I don't hold high hopes about being able to see it again.. But given the chance I almost certainly would.
