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

Took my 5 y.o. to the Lion King for her 2nd time as she looooooves it crazily. The CD is in the car and constantly on repeat for "Can't wait to the King" and "The Morning Report" (*The boy's singing, the boy's singing"). How disappointing for her that "The Morning Report" has now been scrapped from the performance - to save time apparently. Had a very disappointed 5 y.o. on my hands after - although the show was enjoyable and enthralling for her just like the 1st time. She declared she'd be back when The Morning Report is back too.
Oh, and beware: The taps in the Ladies' room sends out scorching hot water and is impossible to adjust to something that won't boil your hands!!

Loved the show! It was nice to see each actor put their personal stamp and interpretation on the characters but kind of quirky to hear the dialogue with an English accent. Costume and puppets were amazing.

If you go to London you can't leave without seeing this INCREDIBLE show in such a beautiful theatre. Worth every penny. Try and choose seats 5/6 rows from the front for best views.
