    It may be encouraging but when youre trying to sing yourself or play an instrument I dont want a spontaneous “WOO” ruining my concentration. Thats? why you cheer at the beginning then at the end. In classical music its considered impolite to clap during the song or scream throughout the entire thing.

  13. Milomia9 says:

    Especially in instrumental concerts. In one of the recordings for Final Fantasy Distant Worlds some guy kept going “WOOOO” in the middle? of the song.

  14. springfairy556 says:

    I think this goes for any performance, I hate when I go to see a live show and you have to clap after each song.Hold the clapping till? the end.

  15. Ingeborg1990 says:

    This is such an amazing production and performance that the audience does not need to be told to? clap!! 🙂 just saying

  16. BusinessDog2000 says:

    The audience does what it’s told. I’ve been to a few recordings of these sorts of shows (X-Factor, Australia’s Got Talent etc.) and the crowd warmer/stage director runs through it all with you? before the actual performances.

  26. TheZaccrazy says:

    OK Dudes You Missed one Charater. Sirabie Mufasa? wife

  27. LifeActingSinging says:

    I agree 100%! The children? are very important! Maybe they were at school, I guess they have to go when they’re not performing in a huge musical 😉

  28. bunnehlover13 says:

    Being a teen/kid and not getting to know the children role’s and who plays them sort of? upsets me. They are equally import as Zazu or Scar…I think they should of had an interview that made it on this clip.

  30. Dinker27 says:

    I thought it was because the archetype of? the healer-priest(ess) in some parts of Africa, a sangoma, is oftentimes female?

  31. GodofBrownies says:

    Was that Paulette Ivory in the West End??

  32. FellowLad says:

    I just watched the musical and I was blown away! But I would have never expected that under the makeup, “Scar” is whiter than the other lions, and “Pumbaa”? is thinner than “Timon”!

  33. falakalak says:
