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

Had heard great reviews and were so looking forward to seeing The Lion King. The opening scene and first song was brilliant but it all went downhill after that. The singing was very second rate, the young Simba especially was poor and he even messed up his lines on two occasions. We were all bored before the interval. The effects and costumes brilliant as other reviews have said but nobody seemed to put their all into it and we came away feeling very let down and disppointed.

What a wonderful experience! The life size puppets were incredible and the music gave me goosebumps! I'm not a Disney fan in general but LOVED this musical! I took my son who was 6 and he was mezmorized as well, so would recommend for all ages.

Amazing show, with superb production this really is a must-see! Our seats were S43 &S44 and despite being situated a little to the left of centre provided us with a great vantage. Try a pint in the Wellington next door prior to the show... great ambience!

Went to see the Lion King with the family in May 2013.
The cast, costumes and production are first class and the experience memorable.
It is very pleasing to see that the entire cast were theatre specialists and the token TV star (who usually cannot sing) had not been brought in to sell tickets.
The show that we saw was completely sold out and you can definitely see why.
A definite must see.

Not much to say except I loved it! Great show and great atmosphere. Loved guy who played Mustafa and woman who played Rafiki, both had amazing voices.
