My husband and I recently visited New York City for our 10 year wedding anniversary.  One of my favorite parts of visiting the city was taking the subway, I LOVED the entertainment you would see on the trains and in the terminals.  Well, this video beats them all!  How exciting would it be to have the actually cast of the top Broadway musical The Lion King entertain you on your subway ride?  These people got a huge treat!!
