My boyfriend and I saw the Lion King on January 5th, firstly, an AMAZING show. Unfortunately i wished we'd paid an extra £10 to sit in more comfort. My knees were round my ears. The poor bloke sat next to us was ver 6foot and got really bad leg cramps. If you struggle with heights or walking up VERYsteep narrow steps do not book the upper circle.
It was absolutely boiling which you have to expect. Seating is crampped and the lighting is hot so even with aircon it would be no different. It's a very old theatre with a lot of character. Toilets need to be better signposted.
The actors did an amzing job but i might pay extra to see it in London on a bigger stage :)
