the lion king.

posted on: Friday, 28 December 2012

last night i went to see the lion king in manchester. i knew it was supposed to be amazing but was never overly interested in seeing it. but when it came to manchester, we booked tickets - it's here til april, apparently - and i decided to bring along my friend, beth, as it was her birthday on christmas eve.

it is honestly without a doubt the most beautiful musical i have ever seen. first off, the costumes and puppetry is outstanding - my personal favourites were the hyenas, giraffes, elephants and little simba and nala. and the thing that made me absolutely fall in love with it was the lighting. the colours were breathtaking and really made it. i couldn't stop looking at the backdrop - the blues and oranges couldn't have been more perfect.

i would seriously recommend going to see it if you can. i believe it's in manchester until april and is touring around the country. (please correct me if i'm wrong)

what's your favourite play/musical, do you go to the theatre often?


p.s i know you're not supposed to take photographs but i just couldn't not capture something so beautiful. plus, beth's nan really wanted to see what it was like.


  1. I've actually seen this musical and it is my all time favorite! It's so fun and lively the entire time, I was engrossed right to the end! I'm glad you had a nice time!
