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

This is the third time I've seen The Lion King and it was every bit as magical as the first time. A must see show.

This show has to be the most exceptional and professional show ever. The quality of the singers, their voices and performance is fabulous, the costumes are wonderful. Obviously, tickets for decent seats are very expensive but well worth it in this case, especially for a good family show.

We went & saw this recently and the stage adaption is fantastic but the bar prices through the roof. A few people behind us mentioned that if they sang a few more hit from the film the second half would be better. I think the words "Stange" & "Adaption" are not in their vocabulary but they were from a more... More

The Lion King is a magical show. You cannot say too much otherwise the element of surprise would be spoilt. Adults and kids alike love the score and the book.
