The Lion King Broadway Show at The Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Canada
When I went to see the presentation of the Lion King at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, I was amazed by the grandeur and the beauty of the show mixed with the endless songs of mystical sounds that was accompanied by the tribal drumming in the background that blended with the music in harmony and boundless symphony of the performers. The King, Queen and the puppetry of costumed animals by dancers in the jungle like the zebras, the lions and the hyaenas, all of them dancing in unison with the sounds of rhythmic drums and orchestra music.
It was a lovely scene to behold when Simba was presented to their world as the heir to the kingdom. Here’s a scene from the Lion King Broadway Show. Even if the Lion King Broadway Show that I’ve seen in Toronto was a performance in North America and Canada, it depicted the same story of the Lion King the world over.
