Young Oscar nominee Quvenzhane Wallis is gearing up to star as little orphan Annie in the star-studded, contemporary movie remake of the Tony-winning musical. Before she begins filming, Wallis made a trip to the Great White Way to check out some musical stars in action. On August 1, Wallis took in the evening performance of the long-running, Tony-winning Disney musical The Lion King, and after the show, she went backstage at the Minskoff Theatre to meet the stars, Andile Gumbi (Simba) and Chantel Riley (Nala). Luckily, Broadway.com photographer Bruce Glikas was on hand to capture the moment. Check out the photo above, and don’t wait until “tomorrow” to check out The Lion King on Broadway.
