“The Lion King in Bristol”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Having not seen the show in London, we cannot compare the two. BUT we thoroughly enjoyed this performance in the Hippodrome, Bristol.
In advance I was told that after a while you could not keep in mind that the animals on stage were actually actors. Well, that was very true. I was really taken with the actors ability to portray a wild?? animal like this. Very well done to Actors and the whole company.

“Top entertainment”

Brilliant show even for a 4 year old who was fixed to her seat the whole time. Brilliant show, the sort you want to see on several occassions

Just as good as the London version. I would highly recommend seeing this whenever you get the chance.

The set, and music are brilliant.

“3rd time of watching the Lion King”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

My husband and I have both seen the Lion King twice previously in London, but it was even better in Bristol. The Hippodrome is a wonderful theatre and the cast were excellent, they even tailored some of the story to involve Bristol. Well Done Bristol - let's have more top London shows in our own Hippodrome - There shouldn't be a problem in having a packed house! And bring back The Lion King gain next year - we queued for 105 minutes to get our tickets (we took family so had 8 of the best seats) this time and would do the same again next year if did return to Bristol.
