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

In view of the fact that the majority of reviewers have afforded the show a 5* rating, I appreciate that this review bucks the trend and may appear to be negative when compared with other reviews. On the positive side, I must say that the production was absolutely stunning – brilliantly choreographed with magnificent staging, but the show itself was... More

beautifully produced and enchanting. A magic show that plays on the success of the film but is truly beautiful in its own right.

The Lion King has always been one of my favorite movies, and when I got to see the musical I was amazed!!! Watching it in London completed my trip! The choreography, and music, actors/actresses developed an amazing roll! I loved this show!

I wasn't especially overwhelmed by seeing the musical but I was blown away! Everything from the costumes to the music was fantastic. There was SO much to look at and I would definitely recommend it

I've been to see it three times and would go again - I have had a variety of different seats from the cheapest to one of the highest priced and I was happy with the view from all seats. It's a definite :)

No Words to describe this. We had just one show to choose and we went for the Lion King , which turned out to be a fantastic decision. We are not really fans of drama, but this performance blew us all away. The magnificent sets, music and the performance of the stars were impeccable. Highly recommended to anyone visiting London....

Having been to a few west end shows I know the standard of performances to be very high, but after crying at the opening scene I knew that I was in for a great show. The costumes are out of this world and the actors incredibly talented. I would highly recommend this show to any one!

The Lion King is not something that I would have chosen to see. However my daughter had a great yearning to see the show so we took her as a birthday treat. It is truly a fantastic performance.

Very enjoyable. Different from the film. Lots of African chants. The puppetry is great. Great songs. Second half much better than the first half. Well worth the money.
