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

On an artistic plane, the Lion King is at best a good show but not one to completely blow your mind, especially if you have seen many musicals. The singing is good but no mind-blowing vocals in this cast. The more convincing acting came from Timon, Simba (the adult), Scar and Pumba. I really appreciate how child friendly they have made it. No amorous kissing between Simba and Nala, a nice hug instead. Some very good effort on props.
In certain scenes, I couldn't help feeling the cast is slightly bear. The celebration scenes at Pride Rock should ideally have more animals (actors) and majestic.
Overall one I would come back again only if I was looking for a great show to share with kids!

Second time we've seen this and just as amazing. Lovely touch bringing in some up to date twists (no spoilers)!
Kids love it, adults love it!
Even the cheap seats are not cheap, but still great view and you are immersed in the show from the beginning.

If you are in London and like theatre, this is a must watch. I was mesmerized by the show and the coming life of characters and environment. Worth the price & time :)
