“A little disappointed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I was so looking forward to this production as I missed it the first time around years ago. I have to say that I was left a bit flat. The backing props were a bit basic however the ensemble cast props were brilliant. The dancing seemed a bit flat, but the story was still as good as the Disney movie. I will go and see it in Australia when it comes out just to compare the difference,

“Fun time with family!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

For a fun time with family (preferably older kids maybe 10+ so they will also enjoy and remember the performance) you can count on this show! The music, the performances and the experience is wonderful and uplifting!! It's certainly time well spent if you want to go for a good broadway show with family! If you are looking for a more romantic time out, maybe choose some other broadway show - it's fun with a loved one as well, but better if you go with kids - they will enjoy the story and the characters even more!

“Classic Broadway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

A classic Broadway experience. Fantastic settings. Strong vocal performances and a classic play
We had seats on last row on the mezzanine and view was still good. Facilities were nice and clean and organisation worked well
We can recommend both the play as well as Minskoff Theatre

“I would go again!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I took my 12 year old daughter and her friend to see the Lion King last may. Our ticket price was almost two hundred a piece which I was a little uncomfortable with due to the fact we could have seen two shows for the same price. I however do not regret going and would pay to see it again. The music, the set and the actors/actresses were wonderful!

“Good for children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Was nice, good actors and a great scenario but a little bit expensive for a whole family. May be we expected more for the price and critics
