The dazzling London show is mesmerizing theatre lovers of all ages successfully. The brilliant onstage presentation makes The Lion King delightful experience. The building of Lyceum Theatre had been used as a circus between the years 1794 and 1809. It was brought by Philip Astley after his amphitheatre was burnt to ashes at Westminister. « less

It was my second musical and if it was my first ever- i would have never went to another one in my life. The production part was AMAZING, but the vocals were really weak. Even the main characters and choir

This show is amazing. It is for the whole family. The costumes, sing and sets were truly unforgettable. I have seen it twice and will go again.

I have wanted to see this for a long time and I was not let down!! The performances and stage was INCREDIBLE! It was a truley great afternoon. My only faults is that it was a bit slow at places and there was a 'techinal difficulty' at the start. I understand that this happens in theatre from time to time... More

This show of Lion King is almost the same as the the one on the Disneyland Park in Hong Kong. As we have seen it twice in Hong Kong, this show is not enjoyable to us. But I see amost all the people who are seeing for the first time enjoyd the shyow.

We've been to many West End productions, and The Lion King never fails - we've been twice, it's that good. Tickets are pricey and hard to come by, so book in advance. The TKTS booth in Leicester Sq is one of the reliable outlets to buy from, as there are some outlets who try to push fake tickets.

Technically brilliant, I loved this but it's definitely one for the children. It's totally amazing and I wouldn't have wanted to miss seeing it.

Lion King is a favourite movie of mine. I loved the musical as well. What made the whole experience was the theatre. Really loved it - and it was a big part of the experience!
