Description:

You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING....

You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING. Brilliantly re-imagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands. 'There is simply nothing else like it.' The New York Times

We went to The Lyceum to see The Lion King initially we were surprised how small the venue was but I have to say this did not take anything away from this amazing production I had an aisle seat and because the show was very interactive it made it more special that they came down the aisles on to the...

Staff at the theatre were rude there was a young girl who appeared to be a manager hurrying people to their seats, shouting at customers and talking to the bar staff extremely abruptly. There was a young boy that worked there walking up and down the aisles also which was very distracting! Apart from this... wow what a show. The... More

Fun for all the family, kids loved it. I enjoyed the costumes and the stage decorations as much as the sense of humour and the well known songs!

I'm not a huge fan of musicals but I was impressed by this. How the stage moved and worked was spectacular. The voices of some of the cast members gave me shivers. Parts of the script were funnier than I expected. All-in-all it was captivating and I would recommend. I do however think the theater it self could do with... More

Went to see this wonderful production this evening with my husband. We found it both stunning and mesmerising. The costumes, scenery, singing, dancing and staging were very clever. The 'drummer', although that title doesn't do him justice, was located in one of the boxes overlooking the stage and it was totally fascinating watching him move from playing the bongos to... More

Two and a half hours of excitement, thrills and amazing acting. A wonderful adventure for all ages, it kept the children wide eyed with the colours of the costumes, and with the same songs as the Disney production,the children loved being able to sing along.
