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

Saw this show on Saturday 22 Oct 2014. It was disappointing in that at no time did I feel absorbed in the story line. Perhaps a poor seat detracted from the magic. I had a ticket in the Grand Circle. The word 'Grand' certainly a...More
