Overview

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

Amazing show, brilliant fun. Best place to sit is in the stalls as the audience get a great view of the show and the cast come running through the stalls at the start of the show. Brilliant production.

The first 20 mins or so were a bit slow, but then the show really kicked off. Some incredible dancing, beautiful music and stunning costumes. Really enjoyed the comedy duo of Timone and Pumba, as well as the hyenas.

The boxes usually have a great view, you will also see when the animals come trough the stalls - I was on the edge of the stalls by the aisle and got a shock when they came past 😄
