I saw the Lion King tour last night, and noticed that the song "The Morning Report" had been cut from the show. It seemed really well-received last time I saw the tour (probably around six or seven years ago), and I haven't seen anything about it being cut. Does anyone know when/why they chose to no longer include it?

What production was this (I'm assuming the tour)? I hate to hear it's gone. Will miss it when I see the tour come fall.

Yes, it was the tour. Overall, the performance was not as good as I remember the last touring cast I saw. We had quite a few understudies though, so maybe that was why. Taking out "Morning Report" removes what I see as an important bonding moment between father and son. Without the pouncing "lesson", we don't get to see nearly as much of the playful side of Mufasa and Simba's relationship, which weakens the overall relationship in my opinion. It's not a major cut, but it seems like an unnecessary one.

They cut it in New York too. I hate the song, but I would have loved to see it because the Zazu actor was so good.

Maybe they cut the song to reduce the duration of the show. Or there must be some problems between the producers. I am not sure about this but one of the above reasons should be responsible for the song to be cut off.
