Locals Jim and Mary Phillips submitted this photograph of New York City's New Amster- dam Theatre, located on Broadway and 42nd streets. The theatre was recently remodeled and rennovated by the Disney Corporation and is currently featuring "The Lion King." Cape Region couple takes in Broadway version of 'The Lion King' Locals Mary and Jim Phillips recently returned home from a trip to see the New York City's Broadway musical "The Lion King." The couple was so im- pressed by the powerful produc- tion that Mary Phillips said she wishes everyone in the Cape Re- gion would take the opportunity to visit the New Amsterdam Theatre to see it. "It was just unbelievable," she said. "The costumes, the music, the whole show was magnificent." Mary said she and Jim didn't expect to get tickets for the show and were surprised to see that they were, indeed, available at the inti- mate New Amsterdam Theatre. She said that not only were the hosts at the theater able to accom- modate hers and Jim's request, but also gave them complimentary tickets for another musical, "Side Show." "It was absolutely phenome- nal," said Mary. "I'd do it again tomorrow." With the brilliant music of Elton John and Tim Rice, including the powerful "Circle of Life," and "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?", "The Lion King" movie has been touted as a mod- ern masterpiece.

Add a dazzling array of cos- tumes, masks and special effects, and the audience has an unforget- table experience on its hands, said Mary. "I would recommend that everyone go to see it," she said. The New Amsterdam Theatre, recently transformed by the Dis- ney Corporation into an impres- sive showpiece for 42nd Street, was built in 1903 as Florenz Zeigfeid's flagship for his follies; it closed in 1985 after 50 years of shameful abuse as a movie house. The theater is now Disney The- atricals' proudest attraction. For tickets and more informa- tion, call Ticketmaster at 800-755- 4000.
