Owner description: 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

“Best production of a musical ever been to!”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

We have been to quite a lot of musicals in London but this was definitely the best production we have ever seen. Music was great, cast fantastic, but the colours and changes of scenery were just the best. When the cast and animals (creations) walked up the aisles singing, music and sensation all around, just brilliant!Would definitely recommend this to anybody.

“A truly memorable night”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

This performance really does take musicals to the next level. Not being a massive fan of theatre performances I was taken aback by the brilliance of The Lion King. Both in terms of the peformers, choreography and emotion it generates, this musical is outstanding.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed 16 October 2012

There's isn't much novelty left in the story, but one should go just for the sheer experience of light, sounds and costumes. The life-like props and puppetry was just amazing.

“Impressed..but expectations were too high”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

We admit we are not great fans of musicals, but went ready to be amazed by a west end show. We were impressed. But not enthralled.
By design, the effects were simple and effective.. but could also be replicated for a school play
In summary, a number of children near us were either asleep..or restless, which is a review in its own right
