Description:

You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING....

You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING. Brilliantly re-imagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands. 'There is simply nothing else like it.' The New York Times

Loved the Lion King. Hated the theatre. Very cramped. Dont mind being in back seats up stairs but hated people standing behind me breathing down my neck. Just greed on behalf of the theatre. Would not go see another show here

Breathtaking, professional, spot on, and completely worth every single penny. A definite must. You will not be disappointed and you will have a lot of "wow", "oh my God", "this is amazing" moments. Brought back a lot of childhood memories and the music, singing and acting are simply perfect.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. I've seen the show before but its the first time for my 3 friends and i'm sure they will want to see... More

Loved Rafiki - what a talented actress! We sat in the stalls, row d - excellent seats. Don't hesitate - book your tickets - you'll... More

Generally a good show, but found the seats very uncomfortable. The puppetry was very good and I'm glad I've seen the show. It's not a show that left me wanting more. Wouldn't rush back to see it again, some of the songs have quite a bit of Wailing in them.

My boyfriend and I weren't going to go to a show initially as the prices for certain seats seemed very high. However I am very glad we decided to go see the lion king at the last minute. We booked only a few hours before the performance and managed to get cheaper seats in the stalls. The show was amazing,... More

Superb really and I am not at all into Lion King itself but the play is very dynamic and creative that you get hooked into it since the very start! Very well done indeed!

Staying in Covent Garden

Neighbourhood Profile
Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
