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.

Even in our seats which were the worst in the theatre (ie back row, end of the row) we had an excellent view of the stage and all the action The costumes were breathtaking and the first scene brought tears to my eyes in the emotion it stirred up inside me. Now I have seen it in the worst seats... More

We booked the tickets in Denmark 30 days before and there were no problems, everything went 100% trouble free. The show were very nice and our 10 years old son could also be inspired by the nice outfits and songs well performed.

The Lion King an amazing visual spectacle, the music was fantastic. It played to a full house. The theatre was well situated for restaurants and bars for those pre and after show meals and drinks. Handy for tube as well. We both really enjoyed the whole evening. Fantastic.

Well worth the money. It's worth paying for stall seats as you will form part of the show. a little pricey.

A very clever idea of transferring an animated film to a 'real life' stage performance. For me It was more of a novelty value - to see how they can capture the action and the story line - from the versertality of a film to the limitations of the stage.

The Lion King is a very entertaining and fun show. I took my mother as a birthday present and she loved it too. It was great to sing along to all the familiar songs from the movie and to watch the story play out. Highly recommended to anyone who is thinking about watching it :)
