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

“A spectacle.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

This is not the best musical I have seen and it is not the greatest theatrical experience, but it was the most colourful and it did have some of the best music.
If you have kids under ten, it's a must. If not, put it on your to do list and when you feel the need to have your spirits lifted go to see this show.

The theatre is splendid. The production was enthralling, and all in all it was a very good night, accoustics slightly odd from where we were sitting.

“Expensive but worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Recently took our two children (ages 10 and 6) and two other adult family members to see Lion King at the matinee showing. By the time we decided to purchase tickets, all the less expensive seats were sold out; our seats were on the stage level to the left just off the aisle. We were very pleased once the show began with the location of our seats as the animals/people enter from the back of the theater several times during the performance and thus we had a great view of them coming down the aisle. As expected the theater seemed filled to capacity. Unfortunately the theater was quite warm, almost uncomfortably so, throughout the performance. The show itself was fantastic with wonderful special effects. I highly recommend for adults and children alike.

A fantastic production, music, lighting, excellent staging - would love to have a closer look at all the puppetry - an exhibition / tour just in itself. Great atmosphere in the theatre. What more can I say? Great (as you can expect from Disney) Souvenir shop to empty your wallet at.
