The Lion King: On Broadway | Review

Disclaimer: My review of The Lion Kong is solely based on a personal opinion.

Hakuna Matata, it means no worries. Who has heard that phrase before? Probably everyone…I hope. Well if you don’t know this phrase, then you should go to your local public library to pick up a copy of The Lion King and watch it ASAP.

Recently, I got a chance to watch The Lion King live on broadway at Minskoff Theatre in New York City (NYC) and here’s what I have to say about the experience. Initially, when you get there, you wait in a line outside. The line wasn’t too bad and it went by fairly quickly. They check your bag and jackets prior to entering so it made me feel safe(r) being in a dark theater. The theater itself is 3(?) stories tall and there are theater staffs at every floor to help navigate you to the proper seating area. Outside of the theater is a little concession stand with alcoholic beverages, snacks, and soft drinks. The pricing of the items are a little expensive, but that was predicted. (Imagine the movies, but a little bit more expensive.)

After getting my drink, I walked into the theater and a theater staff helped me find my seat. The whole process was pretty smooth and it was enjoyable. The theater itself is a decent size, I sat in the orchestra section towards the left. I could see basically the entire stage and the seats were comfortable. The theater wasn’t too cold or hot throughout the whole show, it was the perfect temperature.

The show itself was great, the costumes were amazing and the actors/actresses were awesome. But, I would still personally won’t recommend this as a “must-see” broadway show. Here’s why. The beginning of the show is incredible with great songs and acting. However, as the show goes on, it gets more…boring. It was hard to adjust from cartoon characters to real life people with masks on top of their heads. Even though they sang each and every song flawlessly, the show itself as a whole was just not as enjoyable as I imagined so. The beginning of the show is the most exciting part, the middle and end are the most “ehh” parts.

If you have seen The Lion King on broadway as well, what were your thoughts on it? Do you agree with my opinion or do you disagree? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

Much Love,

Livin’ that High Line Life


  

“Let’s go to a historic railroad in NYC, and walk around all day in the blazing hot sun!!” – my mom. As those words were coming out of her mouth, I remembered my dad, sister, and I looked at each other, then looked at her, and said “NO” But, somehow she convinced us to all go and…it was fun!

The scenery is beautiful, from the historical railroad to the magnificent art on buildings. Did I also mention that it’s definitely a place where every instagrammer should go?

Have you ever been there? If so, what did you do?
Much Love,

Give me some love!

Fresh & Co Review 

 
Chicken fresco & Thai turkey quinoa bowl 

Delicious AND healthy?! That’s the best kind of food combination out there, and I cannot agree more. Fresh & Co is the place to go, in New York City if you want that food combo. They have fresh salads, sandwiches, soups, and quinoa bowls. I picked the Chicken Fresco sandwich and the Thai Turkey quinoa bowl, both very delicious.

The Chick Fresco has slices of chicken with avocado and cheese, the combination is just mouth watering. The items inside were so fresh and you can definitely taste it, it’s something you could make at home. The Thai Turkey quinoa bowl is made with thai turkey pan fried with a ton of different veggies, on top of brown organic quinoa. Both very healthy, and the size is pretty big as well.

The environment of the store can be described in one word – welcoming. You get that “farm to table” feeling when you step inside of the store. You can smell how fresh everything is and you can see how everything is being made. There were a good amount of people there, not too many seating areas, but the store itself is pretty long. The staff is very friendly, it really puts that cherry on top of a great overall experience.

I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a quick, healthy meal in NYC. Have you ever tried this place? If yes, which is your favorite item on the menu??

Much Love,
