Big day/night today--Friday--with a full schedule. Will be going to see “Selma” in the afternoon then a late light lunch bite before we are off to see “The Lion King” at the Broward Performing Arts Center.
This show based on the animated film has been playing on Broadway since 1997 and after more than 6,000 plus performances is still playing to full houses and has been touring all over the world for 16 years now.
“The Lion King” has made history in becoming the top earning title on stage earning way over $6 billion surpassing the production of “Phantom of the Opera”.
The puppetry is staggering as they take up a semi-truck as they move from city to city of which there are 200 puppets showing 25 different animal species. There are 18 trailers transporting the show and the number of people involved from behind the scenes to the cast to the musicians number over 130!
Between Audra and Seth last night, “Selma” and “The Lion King” today not to mention eating out plus getting ‘normal’ chores like food shopping for the week, picking up my laundry, writing reviews, etc., I have a feeling I may collapse Saturday but, oh, in a great way!
I won’t be on the computer much for 48 hours but I will be catching up over the weekend.
I still don’t know how I worked and had a life--retirement sure is busy!
