Lion's Share of Applause for Lion King Tonight?

I've heard so much about the musical version of The Lion King.  I remember enjoying the movie, but I'm still not sure how it will translate on the stage.  I've had several family and friends who have seen the production in New York City and Chicago.  Apparently, the production here at Overture Center is supposed to be just as good. As you may know, I went to school here at the UW, but lived for several years in Houston before coming back here in 1999.  When I did return here, I was disappointed the city didn't have many  "big city" theater productions.  Some shows would come, but they would only be here for two or three days and then be gone. Now we have a "big city" production here in Madison.  It's here for several weeks and it should be amazing.  I'll let you know tomorrow if it's really worth seeing.  My guess is YES.

Olivia Newton-John was all over the radio in the 1970s, with hits that included "Have You Never Been Mellow," "If You Love Me (Let Me Know)" and of course those songs from the movie "Grease." But not a lot of people had good memories about "Please...

Mayflies: faschinating, or horrifying? You decide.
The mayflies were out in full force over the past couple days. Now I've heard about these insects over the years, but have never experienced a mayfly swarm. I think I'm pretty happy about that. Apparently the mayflies were so thick they...
