On Sunday we took Maddie to see the Lion King at the Bushnell. This was the broadway production. It was an AMAZING show and at 2 hours and 45 minutes a bit long. But Maddie thoroughly enjoyed it !
The show did make her ask a lot of questions. We had to explain what happened to young Simba and young Nala when they “grew up” (older actors took over the roles). And she wanted to know if Simba’s daddy had *really* died. She felt better knowing it was all pretend. She watches mostly cartoons and very little live action shows.
She felt better at the end of the play to see that everyone was still there. It was a great time for Arnie and I to spend some one-on-one time with her.
