Wonderful musical that the entire family will enjoy. The voices and music were great and it is a classic. Anything Disney does is high caliber.

The coordination of movement between character and costume is mind boggling. Wonderful music, stupendous staging, spectacular costuming and a heart warming and wonderful production that should be seen by all.

The Lion King is the best show I have seen on Broadway and I have seen quite a few. The customers and scenes are amazing. They stayed true to the movie scenes. They got a standing ovation at the end

I've seen the show twice and was impressed both times (as were my kids/grandkids). The opening is unbelievable, as the large animals parade down the aisles. The music is non-stop and all very enjoyable (thank you Elton). The stage moves in every direction, the dancing is uplifting, and the costumes are fantastic. Most plays I have been to have their...
