Owner description: 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

Excellent stage production.
I think adults will enjoy this too (you don't need to take a child with you as an excuse!)

“Don't understand the hype!!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

If we had left after the opening sequence we would of left happy!!
Took my two children aged 7 and 11 for their birthday's at nearly £300.00 for four of us didn't expect to be BORED... Once the visually exciting opening had finished it was replaced by a lacklustre performance with actors who came across to us as to be as bored as we were.
The child actors couldn't sing very well couldn't even hear the girl at all when she was singing.
The character of the baboon was just annoying, Just seemed an extravagant Panto with poor humour. Very disappointed family. Have never clock watched during a West End show before.

“Had high expectations”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

This was a great show though I heard too much about it that I was expecting a little more. Great show if your with kids, it does have a little bit of humour, which kept me awake. I am not a Musical fan but I would go and watch this again if I needed too...
