    ...I don't know if anyone's around NYC December 1-16, but I heard on the radio this morning they're putting up a free little exhibit of some of the puppets & things at 42nd St & 6th Ave by Bryant Park.

    I'd check it out, but it's a $28 dollars for a round trip train ticket & train station parking plus the subway fare. If I had something else (affordable) to do in New York once I got there it'd be one thing but that's a little salty for one quick excursion :-/ I dunno.

    It's there though, and something to see, if someone else is passing through in the next 2 weeks!

    Personally, I'd be willing to pay $28 to travel to see that exhibit, but that's because I would love to be able to see some of the costumes and puppets up close. But that's just me.

    Hopefully you can find something else to do in New York so you can go.

    I've never been to New York, but I would like to go there some day...

    I was honestly thinking of going up there just to see that. There aren't any good weekend airfare deals from here right now though.

    You guys are good for me <3 I'll see if maybe I can lure someone into going to see the Rockefeller Center christmas tree along with, or play hooky from work one day during the week when the crowds are less & just go myself.

    New York is cool, but it's also overwhelming and exhausting, and when you live in the suburbs an hour outside of it, it's easy to loose sight of how much it's worth it sometimes.

    Wooooooow, $28+ doesn't sound so bad now!! I almost wish you could, if there is a best person who should get to to see something like this you're it!

    That sounds sooo cool! I wish I lived closer to new york I'm really lucky though, as the time that I saw it in New York I got to go to all the backstage rooms/on stage so at least I've seen a good part of what they might show. I hope all of you who are trying to get down there are able!

    Gaaaaah, so close....but...NYC is quite exhausting, especially during the holiday season - I can barely stand being there when it's not the holiday season. Though, if I did go, I could hit up the AMNH too. I've been meaning to go there for a while.

    I shall have to ponder this.

    Maybe I'll flip a coin.

    I managed to get backstage at the Dutch production, and we were all allowed to touch a mask, lol.
    We were on stage aswell, to see where Pride Rock pops out and stuff, and where the chorus is sitting behind the scenes.
    Was really cool.

    No pics allowed then though

    I've heard about this exhibition too. I'd really love to go, but, alas, New York is a tad far away... xP If any of you end up going, I'd love to see some photos...

    So I'm listening to the South African cast right now (Thanks again Nathalie!) and I'm just now noticing, possibly due to the huge amount of caffeine I've had today, that Endless Night's tempo is significantly faster in this than any other recording. Anyone else notice this? It's literally 23 seconds shorter than the OBC.

    Also, Andre Jackson accepted my friend request on Facebook.

    Ah sorry just saw this!

    I was very fortunate - when I went to NYC they were having a once a year fundraiser where if you donated some money to AIDS research you could go on a backstage tour. It was very extensive and one of the conductors lead my tour, which had only one other person besides my dad and I in my group. I got to see everything, touch the fabrics and the mask and (my favourite) hold rafiki's stick! It was really really cool.

    Wow, SimbaSpirit, that was a freakin awesome tour :O

    And HasiraKali, that's really cool. I can't say I think a little zippy-er verion of Endless Night would hurt sometimes on occassion, I get impatient at the very beginning of the song every once in a while listening to the OBC recording sometimes.


    ....Well, I was able to go to the "Inside the Lion King" free exhibit, and took *some* pictures before my phone ran out of juice (I didn't want to lug a regular camera around on the subway,) but I still have to import them, I'm terrible with posting pictures in a timely fashion.

    The one thing that disappointed me was that the actual named character costumes, with the exception of the Adult Simba mannequin at the entrance and a wax figure of Rafiki, were all IN THE WINDOWS, that is, facing outward from the display room, and on the other side of partitions for the sake of the window display. So if you wanted to see those you had to stand out in the 30-40 degree weather and squint/peer through the tinted windows and sun & glass glare made it difficult to see and impossible to photograph. I would have really loved to see those much better and as close as some of the other props :C

    Did you know though, the big elephant puppet's name is Bertha? Probably old news but <3, I love it. XD I guess what else does one name an elephant? XD

    I haven't heard anything about a cast recording either. It's possible.

    Thiago, if they should have it by then, feel free to pick up a copy, hehe.
    (or a double disc if they got one, France and Holland made a double disc version with a bonus DVD)
