Morning Report scene cut off!
Today my son and I went to see the Lion King for the 7th time in one year, as it is his favorite show and to our great disappointment the Morning Report scene has been cut off! Also the scenes where Nahla and Simba are falling in love have been shortened. I asked one of the Minskoff theatre staff on our way out why all this, and he told me that these cut offs took place a month ago because the show was too long and now they have shortened it about 15 minutes. People who never saw the show before were happy as it was but we were very disappointed and will think twice before going to see it again or recommending it to friends, what a shame! The show was PERFECT as it was, there is no need to shorten it! It must already be evident in the ticket sales as to my great surprise when we arrived to the will call to pick up our pre-booked tickets there were still tickets available for last-minute sale, Ive never seen that before for the Lion King show.
