Loved all the costumes and the way the actors moved in them. Their voices were amazing. I wish our seats were not so near the front though since we couldn't see much of what was happening on the floor of the stage. The view would have been better at the back and higher portion of the theater.

Great show! Basically the movie was presented on stage. The actors playing Scar as well as young Simba and young Nala stole the show! Great fun for any Lion King fans, and a great play for the whole family.

From all, the hype I was expecting more. Singing was poor. Visually it was quite good, but I simply expected more from a broadway musical.

A great performance for young and old. The performers do a fantastic job. The theatre is just the right size and the ushers are very friendly and helpful in getting you to your seat and offering cushions to the little ones so they can see over adults heads.

When we saw the show when it first hit broadway way before Oct. 2013 our last choice on the chart for a date, we had very high expectations because of all the hype at the time. It was a good show but not as good as we had expected. The music was good and the costumes were excellent as was... More

The fact that this musical has been running for so long speaks volumes. Great show, great cast, great theatre. Make sure you book early as it has the tendency to sell out.
