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

I was really proud to see the level of performance of these fine actors, child and older. The story and music are timeless. The realization is outstanding. These actors, singers and dancers must be proud of what they deliver and the joy and tears they bring to us.

The Lion King at The Lyceum was one of the few places which succeeded in entertaining... More

Great show costumes staging animals etc were all fantastic. Rafiki was very funny. Even though we were in the Grand Cirlce we had a great view of the stage and could hear everything. The children loved it and the aduts loved it.
