Missed the Monday Movie Review yesterday because, well, I didn’t watch a movie during weekend. Instead, I caught Lion King the Musical at Marina Bay Sands Theatre. Lion King is one of my favourite Disney cartoon and it was an entirely different experience catching it live on stage.
I was curious as to how they were going to bring the African experience out in full and they duly delivered. The production value of the entire musical was astonishing!
I wouldn’t say that the entire musical was top notch, although I would say 90% of it was. Some of the solos, although performed well, fell a bit short in terms of trying to awe the crowd. I guess they had to have ups and downs, else everything will be rather flat.
Some of my personal favourites were the opening number (a song I always loved) as well as the performance of Scar, Zazu and Timone. Those were just some of the top highlights for the musical but definitely worth every single cent of my SG$185.
So, remember, if you are in Singapore, from now until end of May, and you love musicals, don’t miss the opportunity to catch Lion King the Musical at Marina Bay Sands Theatre.
