There are no words that give justice to the amazing performance of this show. Left speechless from start to end with fantastic customer designs, great audience interaction and an astounding atmosphere. We have been three times now and still can't get enough! I didn't think I'd like anything as much as the DVD, but this performance is 1000x better! A... More

We sat on the stalls section row x, right on the edge it was fantastic with the cast entering through the crowd with ridiculous voices and costumes. Worth every penny.

We upgraded our tickets to use the Ambassadours Lounge which was a lovely touch, the service in here was excellent and the private facilities made for a very relaxing interval and total experience. The show was unbelievable from start to finish, we enjoyed it so much we were tempted to see it again the next day. We could not imagine... More

Marvellous performance! Very interesting to see the techniques and how they've adapted it for the theatre. The only thing is the seats are extremely uncomfortable and very close together. Other than that, the whole thing was brilliant.

This show is incredible! The songs, costumes, music, acting... Everything! I'm a Disney fan and it lives up to the film, in fact I'm not sure I'll watch the film the same way again. We had Royal circle tickets and there was an overhead obstruction but it didn't impact the show and there are binoculars available. However the costumes are... More

The puppetry in the show is fantastic. You get a wonderful feel for the African savannah and it was just brilliant. One of the best shows in London. The costumes and puppetry really reflect the animals they represent and the African culture

Beautiful performance. It remained true to the original script and had songs I did not remember from the movie. incredible how they were able to manage the move the stage to represent the animals and the action. The voices of the actors were spot on and songs fabulous. We had Grand Circle tickets. In front of your seat are binoculars... More

The lion king is amazzzzzing and is a definite must watch. From start to finish I was gob smacked and was almost drawn to tears at the opening song. The only thing I would recommend is that the staff would be more helpful with getting people to there seats because there not clearly marked.

My first theatre experience. It was truly amazing! The performance was magical! We paid £70 for a seat in the Grand Circle. It was expensive for the quality view but definitely worth it! The theatre was extremely warm and began to smell from everyone sweating. There were a few rude people who got there phones out during the performance and... More
