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

Outstanding performance! Beautiful hand made costumes. Must see! Already planing another visit with my daughter.

Enjoyed it but it is more for children than adults. There were large parties of schoolchildren at the matinee - costumes good and acting good. Not one I would go back to see as more suitable for children.

Wow, what a throw back to my childhood, it was amazing, though not like the film, it was so special seeing it in the theatre, it is pricey but definitely worth it! Couldn’t fault it, apart from a waitress laughing at me singing along :)

Hate to say but the show was a huge dissapointment, majorly due to a very hot and stuffy lyceum theatre. Many folks were seen fanning themselves with their tickets. Why charge 100+ GBP pp if the theatre cannot manage and maintain a pleasing temperature? According...More

This show is amazing. Whether you sit at the front or back, as the actors do move around the viewers and walk around the seat. It's a theatrical show at it's best. Children will definitely love it. Adult will re-live their childhood moments.....

I was so excited to get tickets for my birthday. The show was spectacular, with wonderful choreography and costumes. There was also humour which was good. It is absolutely a must see for any age.
