Phenomenal London musical, The Lion King, is running with packed house at the opulent Lyceum Theatre London. 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.

Honestly, it's just a wonderful production. Our seven-year-old was captivated every second. Our 14 and 12 year-old (all boys) thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a beautiful evening spent together watching a magical show.

Took my Mum (70+) for her birthday with our son (6) and we all enjoyed the show. I confess that the Lion King was not on my bucket list of shows to see, and I wouldn't necessary go again, but I thought the staging was great - the costumes etc were a study in how to give the impression of... More

Staging, sets and puppetry is superb. The stand out role/voice for me was the old lady who plays the monkey/baboon. The voice of the grown up Simba was a little strained perhaps from overuse. My teenage daughters had a wonderful evening and all in all was an excellent choice.

It is very amazing to see the transformation of Lion King from movie screen into theatrical entertainment. The show is simply splendid. Attended the Sunday afternoon show is also great. The vibes from the crowd; in particulars - family with children, create an enthusiastic atmosphere. One caution should you want to ride the underground at the Covent Garden station, it... More

Bought tickets to the show as a birthday treat for my partner. As two mid 50 year olds, who are still living in their teens, this was a wonderful evening from the moment we arrived at the front door of the theatre. We were met by a cheerful friendly usher who asked if we'd like to pop up to the... More

This is quite a wondrous performance. The sets are good, the costumes fabulous and plenty masking the African savannah come to life on stage. It's really worth going if you can. Children will love it.
