The theater is a gem, it is giant and beautiful. The acoustics is very good. The musical of the Lion King is utterly incredible.

This was my second viewing. First was a gift from my daughters. Amazing seats near the front by the aisles so the opening scene with the characters walking by was awesome. Simply outstanding performances. My husband was pleasantly surprised at how much he enjoyed it....More

Fabulous evening. Beautiful costumes, amazing vocals. We chanced it and turned up on a Saturday night 20 minutes before the performance, managed to get 2 seats, different rows but very close at a really good price of around £45 each. Would recommend this show.

Yep, the British version in my opinion was much better than the AMERICAN, better acting, better vocals, better props. Definitely would recommend the show, for all ages. I can say, after PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, saw it four times, LION KING is the next best.
