“Most surprising and exciting play in a long while”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

This is no kids play. The interpretation of the animated film into theater is superb and riveting. The costumes and set handling are siimply amazing, and the cast is fantastic, both in singing and dancing. I was riveted.

“Great Experience for the Family!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

It is the story we all know from the Disney movie, with some extra songs, and a wonderful display of puppets, costumes, masks, and other marvelous sites. It was very easy to get to the theatre, get tickets, and had wonderful seats for a reasonable price. Overall the show was amazing, and I highly recommend it to all.

“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 via mobile

Very nice show, maybe the dance and music wasn't on the same level as other musicald, but Lion King is rather known for the amazing show, and that's what you get!! I think especially the kids will go crazy... but not being a kid I aldo enjoyed it enourmously! Yeah, the ticketd could be cheaper but it's a once in a lifetile experience, and in my opinion well worth it!

“Amazing Entertainment!!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

I booked with Ticketmaster in advance and found this very trustworthy and printed our tickets to take with us. We saw the afternoon session and it was packed. Nice big theatre with helpful staff. Had great seats on the mezzanine level. Was amazing and entertaining from start to finish. Great actors, songs, make up, sets and costumes. Very much like the movie but acted out in front of you. Their vocals & acting was amazing. This is good for all ages and would recommend to anyone to see. One of my top 3 musicals to see.
