This is a must to watch. The show is brilliant from the beginning right to the end. We sat in the middle orchestra seats. The merchandise is expensive just to warn everyone and the theatre won't let you take food in with u. I found this out after going out before seeing the show and tried taking my left over cheesecake in with me

The real awards here go to the costume designers. Very clever and colorful. The music is good and the acting is fair

Great show. If you loved the movie, then you will definently love the play. The offscreen plays that take place around the country do not compare. Broadway is the way to go for this show.

First time I'd seen the show. My wife thoroughly enjoyed it. I thought the set and costumes were well done, and there were contemporary nods in places in the script. Whilst the run time (c.150 mins) felt overly long, the performances were fantastic (especially young Simba and Nala) and they rightly received a standing ovation from the entire theatre.

We came to see this show while on holiday in 2011 & WOW it was absolutely brilliant, the costumes were great as was the music it makes you want to sing along . Would definitely go to see this show again maybe in London next time
