Showtime: Wishes on Broadway

For my birthday one year, I saw The Lion King during their national tour. Seeing my favorite Disney movie on stage was completely unforgettable. While I don’t remember every bit of dialogue, I do remember every song lyric and how I felt during and after the show. People around me were crying, and I’m pretty sure I was too.

Broadway is still on my bucket list. New York City is the hub of professional theatre, so a fanatic like myself has to go. But there are three wish kids that have already taken in the wonder of this.
