The broadway musical "The Lion King" is a combination of incredible musical talent and vocal performance. That is why it would be sad NOT to buy this cd. If you have seen the animated version of Lion King release by Disney, you will find all the great songs like "Just can't wait to be king" and "Circle of life" (here comes the lion). Yet in addition will find a very fun song in which the hyenas sing about there soon coming meal of Simba and Nala. Also included on the cd are fun versions of "The Lion Sleeps tonight" as well as songs found on Disney's sequel to "The Lion King", called "Simba's Pride". All the great ones and some new ones are found. If you have a choice between buying the original soundtrack and the broadway musical version...buy the Broadway version. The music is better and the vocal talent incredible!
