Let me start with one simple question here. Do you believe in magic?
Well if you have been to Broadway I am sure, you do!
I have been fond in a very cheesy and annoying way, since I was little to Musicals. They were huge for me, the acting, the songs..the characters… how the entire world can fit in one simple stage was amazing! Plus this was something inevitable since in my family everyone is into performing arts…
But enough talking about me, as you all may know the kingdom of all musicals is obviously Broadway, and probably everyone needs to experience it “live” at least once in a lifetime..
The last show I saw, was for sure the most incredible and legendary of them all!
Already, in love with the Disney cartoon since I was 9, my expectations were very high for this one!
I heard the soundtrack before and fell in love with it! .. the new “added” songs too, they are really, really good!
But seeing live the Musicals was incredible, everything was yet the same, but so creative so perfect and brilliant in its own way …. the scenography, the effects, the lights, the movements of the dancers… and my God those costumes were the most beautiful thing I have ever seen!
but really the Lion king is now my fave! I just surrender … hands off… this show is Magic!
I cried, I laughed, I followed every single detail and fell in love….
I am not sure if you have ever heard any of the songs, but if you did not you should definitely check it out, at least a bit on “you tube” or “spotify”… try with “He lives in you”, or “Circle of live cast version”, or also “Shadow land”… and let me know!
Also in the halls of Minskoff Theater there are wonderful wax statues of the characters so you can have a closer look at those amazing costumes that are truly a piece of art!
Next time I’ll be in broadway, I wanna see another!I mean the second on my top list. Can you guess? …
This other Musical, I wanted to see it last March but had no luck in finding tickets for the days I wanted…I was really sad.. also because I had listened to its songs like crazy… and saw a few sneak peek that seemed really cool!
Yes I am talking about Wicked!
Hope that day comes soon!! I already know it will be a magical experience!
