“Phenomenal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This performance absolutely blew me away from the opening scene! The costumes are amazing! So beautiful, so detailed, so elegant. The performers voices were outstanding. The way they moved with the costumes almost made you forget they were not real! Absolutely worth the cost of tickets. Also the theater it's self is just beautiful.

“Great Expectations unfullfiled”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

So much publicity and flashes for not even the 1/4 as good show as others since they put a lot on makeup and forget voices and scenario

“Amazing costumes!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

We had heard how good Lion King was and we were not disappointed! I was amazed at the costumes and how the actors gave the animals the correct mannerisms. You forgot they were humans! Love the music! It was an enjoyable afternoon.

“WOW!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

This was our first time seeing a Broadway Show and I am afraid that going forward we won't see a show that will surpass the Lion King.

The dancing, music and scenery as you'd expect with such a successful show is outstanding and mind boggling.

My family (wife and children 6 and 9) all loved the show and would recommmend anyway seeing a Broadway show to find a way to see the Lion King
