We're not going tell you about how watching The Lion King at Minskoff Theatre will make you feel like a kid again. You're old as hell, and we both know your innocence is gone for good. But you will smile a lot. And feel suitably wowed at the intimate theater, where the sets are elaborate and the costumes wild and gorgeous. Watching Simba dance will make you feel something weird you can't quite describe. It might be called happiness.
