THE FOURTH WALL

Broadway Across America Presents

Disney’s THE LION KING

 

Fifty years ago a New York vocal group called The Tokens took a song called “Wimowe” based on an old African legend and transformed it into a #1 hit, “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” Half a century later the lion awakens in New Orleans for a five-week run as Disney’s THE LION KING.

The long-awaited multi-award-winning musical based on the animated Disney movie of the same name opened March 14 at the Mahalia Jackson Theater for the Performing Arts. It is the final production of the 2011-2012 Broadway Across America season in New Orleans. Single tickets are on sale through the theater box office and website, and through the Broadway Across America and Ticketmaster websites for the entire run which wraps up on April 15.

Drew Brees is making New Orleans Saints fans pretty nervous these days.  It's bad enough that the team lost All Pro Carl Nicks offensive lineman to a team it will play twice per season, the Tampa Bay Bucs and that Robert Meachem is now a San Diego Charger.  

But, according to rumors flying around the Internet, Brees wants 23 million and the Saints are at 18 and if he doesn't get what he wants, he will hold out.  Can anyone spell Bobby Hebert, the former New Orleans Saints darling QB who spent a year out of football and donned a n Atlanta Falcons helmet after not getting what he wanted.
