The Lion king is so cool!

Hey kids! Did you see the Lion king? It’s a Broadway show! Broadway show are so fun! It’s in New York! The monkey is funny! The monkey has a stick. The monkey is beautiful. The monkey lives in the tree. Scar is not nice. He is a lion. He is a bad guy that makes the show fantastic! Did you see Scar before? He is beautiful. He does not like the Lion king’s dad. Also, the hyenas are not nice. They make the show sad. The hyenas are beautiful! They have sharp claws! The Lion king is so cool! You should seat next to the aisle because you can see the characters when they are going to the stage. I give the Lion king 5 thumbs up! Matthew, 6 years old

Lion of a Time

This was my wifes pick as a cornerstone activity for our recent trip to New York. We loved the stagecraft and even the music. Our 11 year old son said it was the best thing on our trip. Dad and mom agreed. Broadway play is a reason for us to come from so far away. And why risk going to something 2nd rate! No. Buy the best tickets in the house and enjoy.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
