The costumes were fantastic and the movement of the 'animals' was very life like, the songs were well known and performed with gutso and went down very well with the audience. We were in row C (3 from the front) and you had to look up all the time and some of the action on the floor you could not... More

Maybe im expecting too much or sth else, I don't go to theatre a lot but I do go once in a while. However, the Lion King its really just so so. It was great in the beginning, however it fell apart after that. It can defiantly be better than that. Disappointed.

Very easy to by tickets online. No waiting in line outside the theatre. Worth every cent! Great songs and beautiful stagework. Nothing negative to say really.

Me ,My son (7 years old ) and my wife were mesmerized . It was just fantastic. We were so spellbound by the show . Set design, Music, Lights , stage craft, choreography and acting and singing will cast a spell on you. It is to be seen to be believed!!!

By this time, most people reading these words may have already seen the show. It was such an enjoyment at the show the other night, again. Having seen it early, and now a 2nd time, one never becomes amazed at the show. Humans mimicking animals running around onstage, WOW, I thought. The design is so ingenious. Thoroughly enjoyable show.

First, I loved the movie, so I wanted to know how this play would take that story and wow me. They produced a wonderful play, all the characters looked real and they were colorful and moved around like the animals they were supposed to depict. I would recommend to families with kids that it may not be for children under... More

I didn't understand why it is announced as number 1 broadway show. Yes it is very good, especially visual and sound effects, but overall it is kind of boring for adults. For kids maybe it is the best show. Drink your water before you get in the theatre because they sell small bottle of water for $5
