“A Stunning Visual and Musical Event not to be missed”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We went here again today for the first time in about 15 years.

We took our 13 year old son and he loved every minute. This is a perfect family show with the most amazing sets, costumes, puppetry and a fantastic score by Elton John and Time Rice.

It's only got 6 weeks left in Sydney, but if you haven't seen it, go!

“A Great Production”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We booked ahead for early June and were not disappointed. If you are traveling especially you may want to budget some money for smaller souvenirs around 20 dollar average. Expect some slight differences in the plot and presentation that give value to your movie to musical experience. Great set and performers.

“Awesome”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

What a fantastic stage production. The costumes, music, singing, it was all fabulous. I have seen the show twice now, once close to stage, the second time right near the back. Both positions showed a different perspective, being up close was great to see the costumes and performers up close, but were often distracted by the detail. Being up the back was an equally grand experience, seeing the characters as who they were portraying, rather than people in costumes.
Either way it was a fabulous show and well recommended. Love the music and songs. Mind blowing is a great description.

“Worth every cent!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Husband suprised me with box seats in 2005 and the show was phenomenal. I decided that if it ever come back to Sydney we would take our boys to watch. We did take our 3 son's in June and although we weren't in the boxes we still had fantastic seats. The boys were in awe of everything and even our 2 yr old sat through 90% of the show enthralled.
We love this production and if it were to come back again, I certainly would go again.
