The costumes were out of this world, the cast had wonderful voices and the acting was great. I could not fault this in anyway shape or form. A must if you haven't already seen it.

We loved the show. The singing, costumes, set are all brilliant. No surprise it has been running with sold out shows for many years.

We LOVED this! It was the highlight of our vacation. The costumes, the singers, the scenery, the music, and more all came together for a fantastic experience.

Stunning, funny, breathtaking and the power of the music pulls you into the show from the very first note. This was our first broadway show and it has set the bar pretty high for any other. We sat in ZZ 101 row and they were great seats. My 10 year old was glued to the show. Our favorite character was rafike because she is an amazing singer and funny too. She has a powerful voice, one that gave me goose bumps because you know you are listening to a God given gift. An everlasting family memory for all.

Saw the Lion King for my daughter's 16th birthday. We loved it!! SHe loved her! Her friend loved it! Amazing show! Amazing cast.

We finally saw this show all these years it is on Broadway, wish we had gone sooner! We had excellent seats, cast was wonderful. Pretty much word for word from the movie. Thought cast members holding up animals would be silly, but it works ! and it is a great show! Deserving of every award!
LOVED IT!!! If you think this will only appeal to children, you are wrong. Wonderful story line, songs are so catchy, and upbeat! Got to say Hakuna Makada!

Go see it! If you have kids they will be singing and dancing!
