I love ebay

I've seen The Lion King on Broadway. (After standing in the cancellation line for 3 hours)
I've seen The Lion King in London (strange, those british accents when you're used to the Broadway soundtrack :) Thanks, afya!)

And on May 21st, my parents and I are going to .....

The Lion King in Holland!

Someone had to sell his top-seat tickets (with dinner included!) on Ebay, because he has to go on a businesstrip. I won the auction :) And with a very good deal, I might add.
So... in 3 months from now, I'll be having dinner in The Lion King restaurant (in the theater) before sitting down in my (somewhere in the front-rows) seat and enjoy the show for the third time. (In dutch this time o.O)

s'Avonds bloeit de liefde op, lalalala

Re:
Actually, Disney never meant to bring TLK to Holland. There's one in London, one in Germany, and it wouldn't be very profitable to put another production in between those two.

However, Mr. Joop van den Ende, one of the most influential TV-producers our country has ever seen, wanted to give something back to the people. He's out of the TV biz now, and into the musical biz. As a gift for the 100th birthday of the Circustheater in Scheveningen, he pulled out his big fat wallet, and pulled some strings at Disney. And so, TLK came to Holland.

The show will probably operate at a loss, but Joop has promised to pay all the costs needed to keep the show running. It was his dream to bring TLK to Holland, and so he did.
