Lion King San Francisco: A Magical Show In a
The Lion King is the Classic Hero's Journey Tale
It's the classic Hero's Journey: ousted from the kingdom, Simba
roams the world with happy-go-lucky new friends, ignoring his
destiny until he can ignore it no longer. Knowing he is meant to
become the Lion King, he returns to the Pride Lands and takes his
rightful place among them as leader, in the Circle of Life (made
famous in the tune sung by Elton John, "Can You Feel the Love
Tonight?") This is a journey we all must take at some point along
life's great wheel, becoming king or queen, as it were, of our own
omain-but how exciting to be able to say you're the Lion King,
Lion King Reminds Me Of A Show Called, "Queen for A Day"
In a way, the Lion King reminds me of an old TV game show, in
which less than fortunate women had a chance to win prizes they
really needed, such as a new washing machine (this must have been
in the very early days of television, when housewives were still
glorified.) The show was called "Queen for A Day." Wonder what the
prizes would have been if the show had featured men, and been
called, "King for A Day"?
Men Want to Be King Of All They Survey
Trouble is, men don't want to settle for being king for a day.
They want to be the king all the time. The lion of the house. The
lion of the workplace. The lion. The king. The lion king! And how
superb to be the lion king of the Golden Gate, the lion king San
Francisco! I'm being a trifle facetious here, but you can see why
the show is a hit with men, women and kids of all ages.
The Lion King Is A Great Excuse for A Trip to San Francisco!
If you do have children, it's a good excuse to go see a
heartwarming performance with an all-star cast and award-winning
music, with no questionable language, that the whole family can
enjoy. And there are so many advantages to seeing it on the
glorious West Coast. If you don't already live there, it's a
reason to take a trip to San Francisco (as if you needed one!) As
soon as you tell your coworkers you're off to see The Lion King,
San Francisco, they'll be envious. California, here you come!
After Seeing Lion King, San Francisco Offers A Wealth of Other
So let's assume you've already reserved those sought-after
tickets to see the Lion King. San Francisco itself is the next
step in your planning. Where will you stay? What attractions do
you want to see, outside of the theatre? There's Fisherman's
Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the famous San Francisco Zoo,
where you can see real lion kings any day of the week.
Digital Photos Will Keep Your San Francisco Memories Fresh
On the flight home, your kids will no doubt be talking non-stop
about the Lion King. San Francisco will be fading into the sunset
as you contemplate the work awaiting you back East. But hey, it
was a fabulous trip to California, and your San Francisco memories
will return once you get those digital photos into your laptop and
send them to all the relatives.
"We saw the Lion King-San Francisco!" you can casually note in
your e-mail. And you'll remember the story line for a long time to
come, as you take your own place in the Circle of Life.
