If you've seen this production of The Lion King on stage either in Broadway or the West End or on a tour then I would definitely recommend you buy this CD if you liked the show. It has all the songs from the show (including one that was in the show originally but has been cut, called "The Morning Report"). I always buy the CD for musicals that I have enjoyed so that I can listen to the music to remember the show, that way the enjoyment can continue long after you've seen the show. My favourite song is "They Live In You".
This version also includes a DVD, with a half an hour long documentary showing behind the scenes of the show in London. I watched this the day after seeing the show, I found it very interesting but it would have been nicer if it was a bit longer. If it was sold as a standalone DVD you would be disappointed but as it stands it's a welcome bonus to what is already a worthwhile purchase.
This recording is excellent and the additional DVD describing how the production is put together is facinating.It is a real eye opener of the details the production team and the cast address to produce such a fantastic show.
Hello everyone! I just made my dream come true and I went to see this fantastic show yesterday; however I couldn't buy the DVD there ( I had already bought a lot of memorabilia) so though I am almost sure this is the same DVD they were selling there I just wanted to make sure it is... Thank you! :)
