It’s a different kind of joy [than doing the show]. It is breathtaking. It made me tear up when I started thinking how lucky we were to be part of this. It’s fabulous that the show has been on Broadway for so long—we just celebrated our 18-year anniverary—and it has sold billions. Now to be a part of this! Can you imagine? I mean my grandchildren and great-grandchildren are going to see this.”To experience The Lion King’s “Circle of Life” from the actors’ point of view, click below.
