“Go before it goes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2014

I've been wanting to watch the Lion King Musical for the longest time and I finally got to do it here in Sydney. What an amazing show. I felt like I was a kid again. The show's pretty emotional with their moving songs with magnificently choreographed dancing. I could watch it over and over and over again

****FLAWLESS
Has to been seen to believe. Words can not describe how amazing the show was. Great cast and the costumes were out of this world.

“Best musical ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Probably the best musical I have ever seen and I have seen quite a few!!! Would love to visit again so will probably do a trip to Melbourne or Brisbane next year just to experience it all over again.

“Spectacular colour, music, costumes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

What a wonderful production. The vibrant colours, spectacular puppetry and the brilliant music all combined to make this a memorable musical. Just one small detail I was a bit unhappy with was that the music was really loud throughout. Not much light and shade there, which detracted from the wonderful arrangements. But overall, a brilliant spectacle. I just loved the elephant puppets!

“Brilliant show-don't miss out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Went to this show yesterday with wife, daughter and 2 grand daughters. A totally magical experience- words can't express the brilliance of the costumes, sets, singing, music , choreography etc- the total package. We were all in awe. And I agree with Britt A- seats in the stalls near the aisle where the performers enter. Not long left in the Sydney run, but moving to Brisbane and Melbourne, so don't let anything stop you from seeing this spectacular production. Fantastic, talented cast who obviously live the roles. Right up there with the best of theatre experiences!
