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

The Lion King is nostalgic though I must say I still find it a little strange the 'actors' have 2 faces (their own and of the animal they're pretending to be).

Loved it all. Would go again. Ticket prices are expensive but we had very good seats, (3rd row). It is possible to get much cheaper ones but where you have less choice where you sit.
