The dazzling London show is mesmerizing theatre lovers of all ages successfully. The brilliant onstage presentation makes The Lion King delightful experience.

I was pretty excited to see this show, and unfortunately I left the theatre feeling very under whelmed and quite disappointed. The acting was average, at best, with poor timing and delivery of crucial lines (consequently leaving the audience a little lost.

The first of our eyes shows while in London and our favourite. We had some doubts whether our teenage boys would connect with it but they loved it, the music is incredible and you leave with a huge smile on your face. 2 hours very well spent.

Stunning and brilliant. Way worth seeing! Make sure to not sit too far back on the top level, you'll miss the top part of the scene.

Was initially not sure what to expect (as were the teenagers!) but it was very enjoyable and polished. Loved the animals controlled by people!

The best show we have ever seen, the acting and costumes were amazing. Downside was we went to the 2.30 show during school holidays, there were lot of small children so it was quite noisy. We definitely intend to see this show again, but during the evening!!
