    Fun but hard to understand the singing
    Great theatre, good actors. Difficult to understand. I had seen it in the states so knew the story. Those 1 st timers could not follow it. Singing was not clear and not loud enough. Would not recommend for 1 st time

    Incredible!!!
    Absolutely amazing!! The acting was incredible, the storyline itself was perfect. Full of Stranger Things nostalgia and had me in tears at multiple points (mostly from pure happiness). Highly recommend!!

    Okay but no Myles!
    Shame they won't tell you if lead is on or not. They advertise it with Myles Frost as the lead and that's why I went there...to see him as MJ. Unfortunately we got a standby as MJ who was okay but felt misleading. Great show either way but would not go again unless I know when Myles is on! Grand circle with great views, get row K-H.

    AMAZING
    It was absolutely amazing. It’s my second time but I followed the auditions on tv last year and loved the new Sky and Sophie so went to watch them, but sadly Stevie the new Sophie was away, so it was her understudy who doesn’t have the voice and character that Stevie has but the whole show was amazing and I will just have to go again to see Stevie.

    Shouldn’t be called ‘dance floor’
    Ahhh… you approach the arena from the station, sun is shining and the excitement building as you see lots of others dressed in sparkling clothes, with smiles on their face. You enter into the common area, it’s packed but looks amazing. But you forgive the tight space as surely soon people will be let into the arena. You buy a drink and bear with it for a while. It gets to the start time and you’re still waiting to go in (the show is late, it’s hot and crowded, and there’s zero communication what is happening), but still you’re excited. Finally the doors open. And what a space! Fantastic arena. The excitement builds. The dance floor continues to get fuller and fuller and fuller. There can’t possibly be more people. But yes, you are stood there squashed, no room to ‘dance’. Could easily be re-named ‘standing like sardines floor’ It’s hot, overcrowded and you can hardly see a thing due to the huge people in front of you. What a disappointment. Should have gone with seated. Pros: the show is amazing. Visuals are stunning. Life like. Not to be missed Cons: crowded, hot, sound system is suffering. No crowd control. A girl fainted next to us and had to be carried out. You should be ashamed. Losing the magic so you can cram as many people as possible. No The way of dancing, breathing. Anything. Choose seated or don’t come. Utterly disappointed on what looked (from what I see behind people’s heads), as an amazing experience.

    Very disappointing - expensive sound induced headache but with great visuals.
    The visual experience was pretty amazing but the sound was appalling and headache inducing - too loud and no balance. I'm not a major Abba fan, but was looking forward to the concert as I enjoy their songs - catchy tunes, close harmonies and the quality of the girls' voices. All of this was missing in most of the songs as the low / mid range accompaniment was so loud; at one stage I had to look at the screens to tell whether or not anyone was singing. This concert was great for Abba enthusiasts who were happy to hear all of the songs in their heads, but not for anyone who actually wanted to hear the music. In fact, about the only songs where the voices were properly audible for the most part was 'Thank you for the Music' as the accompaniment is sparse - and also, as my wife has just pointed out, 'The winner takes it all ' With so much money spent on the technology for the show, you would have thought that they could have ensured that the sound balance was good and did the tunes and the voices proud - sadly not.

    Fantastic show
    So we went to the 3pm show. We don’t experience the food or drink at the venue as we ate and drunk else where. The staff were friendly and was very organised in getting us through the security and scan tickets. I had mobile tickets and reception was great. We were on the dance floor standing. 90mins was enough time to enjoy the show. It was incredible. They really looked like they were on the stage. Music and singing sounded alittle off in the opening but it soon got better and you could hear the lyrics very well. All lightening effects were brilliant. All visuals were a show on their own highly recommended. The only down side is I brought Bottle of water which was a refillable bottle but the cap was so flimsy that soon as I opened it I now can’t reuse it as the cap leaks.

    A Spectacular Show
    Make no mistake, this is a good show and the staging is spectacular. However, it is not without fault. Some of the acting is a little bit "stage school" not helped by a weak and poorly crafted script but the music carries it. The cast are generally very good but I couldn't help thinking that some of the lead characters came across as a little "forced", and over exaggerated particularly the roles of Zidler and Christian, the latter having a very good voice but seemingly very loud or soft with little "in between" vocal range . The female lead however was clearly a powerhouse with a wonderful range. The support cast were particularly good. The first half tends to drag a little and is slow to develop but the second half grabs your attention and carries you through to a truly moving conclusion.

    Best show in years
    Form the moment we arrived, about 15 mins before the show was supposed to start the cast came out creating an atmosphere. The sets were stunning and the cast, amazing. Had such a great night

    Amateurish main actor (Christian), but brilliant stage and other actors.
    The stage was beautiful and most actors were phenomenal. However during early May 2024 the main actor Christian was played by the understudy whose performance was amateurish to say the least. He was constantly out of tune and, in my view, did not have any chemistry with the show. I also noticed several other people complaining about him during the break (and asking why Satine didn’t prefer the evil Duke instead!) Unfortunately this brought the whole show down, and was unfair on the other actors who were very good. Satine, the Duke and Harold were just outstanding. Attending such shows in London one expects the very best especially given the high ticket prices. On this occasion it was a disappointment.

    Good night overall & glad I have been
    Overall had a really good night, it was a great experience but was disappointed all the main hits weren’t part of it, I feel it would’ve made the atmosphere better. When the newer songs came on not many people knew them to sing along to. Was also a little confused with some of the animations they were playing.

    Incredible, incredible!
    An incredible experience and it was hard to believe that ABBA were not stood in front of you. It was such a party atmosphere with people of all ages. Stayed at the snooze box hotel across the road where the party continued long after the event. My husband and I both agreed it was the best thing we’ve seen for a long time. Well worth the money

Amazing show, production, costumes and timeless songs to enjoy.

Given the ticket price, some of the performances were lack lustre which was a shame. One actor was decidedly off key. Nala, Rafiki and Mufassa were excellent.

Am also amazed that audience members are allowed to interupt viewing by leaving during the performance and then allowed back in again. Would be nice to see the theatre strengthen policy in this area as it ruins the experience for the rest of us. I'm sure that was never the case a few years back.

Was also fairly disgusted to see the state of the theatre after people had left - the floor is not a bin!

Myself and partner watched the show on Thursday 21st October and throughly enjoyed it. Watching this musical was one of the things I have on my bucket list and it didn’t disappoint. From the songs to the costumes and the actors it was fantastic. My partner is ‘new’ to the Lion King and also really enjoyed it. We sat in the stalls, row K seats 19 and 20 which were two in from the end of the row so to see the actors as they came down through aisle. We recommend the seats and the show but advise to arrive early as there was a big queue to get in and also queues for the bar and loos were long.

The show not just a show but an experience not to be missed.

Truly brilliant. Wow what a show. Really spectacular.
The performance and story adaption to theatre is fantastic. The costume design is really something else though.
Amazing show, I would love to go again.
There are a number of sites that sell tickets so it pays to shop around. We brought our seats a few weeks out direct from the theatre website and paid 20GBP/seat for a Friday evening sitting. Many tickets go for significantly more than this.
Our seats were in the third row of the grand (highest) circle) and I thought we had a really good view. Not sure if I would pay the typical 100-200GBP more for other seats.

Absolutely brilliant. A spectacle and a show. The child actors genuinely seemed to be having the time of their lives. And as for the woman that played Rafiki . Well worth going to see her alone. Superb. Fantastic

Such an amazing show! Zazou, Simba, Scar, Timone and Pumba were especially great with their comedic timing and every member of the cast were so fantastic to watch in their amazing costumes. A truly magical experience made even better by the announcement at the end for the centrepoint charity which was lovely. I highly recommend for adults and children!

OMG! My wife and I are in our 60's. And have been to the theatre many, many times, Now admittedly this time was with grandkids 8 and 10, and i was influenced by both who both raved about it afterwards but this was still the best show we have seen. Stunning from start to finish. Actors, musicians, costume makers and all involved must be so proud. If i could just say, please don't go in comparing a theatre production to a film. Just get caught up in the story and the performance. Definitely a show that will last in the memory. You have to see the costumes, UNBELIEVABLE! Disappointed the big Elephant only got seen at the start :-).

Probably to date the best theatre show I've seen. Classic songs and the props used were nothing like I've seen before. Fantastic play and cast. Expensive but worth it

The Lion King is the best show I have seen and been twice within a five year period, they changed a few things but still brilliant. The child actors are very good. It is a very feelgood musical. Some surprises if you have not been to see the show.

Good for adults and children.
