What Is The Lion King About?
Disney's Academy Award®-winning beloved film has been transformed into a magical theatrical experience that explodes with life in the rhythms of Africa, in the incredible stage production brilliantly reimagined by acclaimed director Julian Taylor.
At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba and his epic adventure, a journey that sees him go a from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands.
A musical that is both a modern-day classic and a state-of-the-art multi-sensory experience, the African plains are brought to life on stage by amazing dancers and gigantic puppets that represent the varied and stunning African flora & fauna. Expect running herds of gazelles, cheetahs, birds, giraffes and many more incredible creatures!
As described by The New York Times: 'Suddenly, you're 4 years old again, and you've been taken to the circus for the first time. You can only marvel at the exotic procession of animals before you...' The Lion King The Musical is an unforgettable, spectacular theatrical experience - Now playing at the Lyceum Theatre in London - Book your tickets today!
Went with my mother , my son and he’s girlfriend , We all thougt it was a great show , One of the big shows , It was amazing , the singing , the costumes , the puppets , Totally enjoyable from start to finish ,
It was just amazing, loved every minute of it.
Lovely decors and actors. Good for children, for adults is a bit boring.
We sat in row VV in the stalls. The sound was poor. The difference when someone was actually singing live versus click track was obvious.Some if the acting was also poor. I have seen the show before c15 years ago and remember it being fantastic. This was a trip for my husband and frankly we were disappointed.
Absolutely amazing! Perfect musical!
The musical was just magical! something to remember forever.. very beautiful very nice..the music and the songs they were singing. One of the favourite things I have ever experienced in my life. highly recommended
Sadly not engaging No real empathy with performance and a restless audience Fabulous costumes and stagecraft however
Amazing. Beautiful costumes, such a magical show
Fabulous show from beginning to end. This has to be the best theatre production I've seen and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone, young and old.
Absolutely amazing! One of the moat emotional show I have ever watched in my life! Thank you!
I’ve waited to see this show for ages. I was not disappointed, has to be the best show I’ve ever seen ( and I’ve seen quite a few). I genuinely did not want it to end. Immediately I was taken to the African plains the colours , the scenery and the costumes were a delight to the eye. This show gave me the feel good feeling I had when I watched the film for the first time. I would watch this show time and time again. I would never tire of it.
Brilliant beautiful wow artist ewatch my daughter and friend watch enjoy I said thank you all theatre
It was absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing. I highly recommend it to everyone.
An amazing production of the Lion King, extra ordinary, emotional, funny and very entertaining well done to all involved. 👏👏💕💕 The whole evening an absolute joy.
Absolutely amazing production, I would recommend this to anyone,from acting to the scenery cannot fault anything. Young Simba and Nala were amazing actors.
Amazing performance, vocals were great and was just a beautiful display
This is the third time I have been to see this show & it most definitely will not be the last time, worth every penny, so beautifully put together with some incredible talent on stage too. The voices are phenomenal & staff are also polite & friendly
Amazing show, amazing seats and just overall great experience
Just MUST HAVE to watch this show!
Enjoyed. Really good show to watch
Fantastic! Enjoyed every minute!
Loved the show and the audience atmosphere was electric great 😀
The dance routines were elaborate and spectacular 😍😍😍 And the use of the stage is well-planned... Bravo to the cast and the ensamble, and all the makers behind the Lion King Musical!!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 Me and my friends were very much amazed... It was also nice that they tried to help in celebration with World HIV/AIDD month... 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Show was great, second time I see it, only this time with my toddler daughter who enjoyed it. My comments are - (1) it was far too warm inside (2) saw a parent with a booster seat for kids but was not aware they were available - that would have helped avoid my daughter on my lap! (3) Not a great variety of souvenirs, especially for kids!
Our little 4 year old loved it. Wife and I said it was just as good as ten years ago when we first saw it.
Amazing performance, brilliant and powerful music!
Greatly enjoyable - so well directed and staged. Such a joyous experience!
Took my boyfriend as a surprise for his birthday. The actors were amazing and costumes too pretty.
This was the very best show I have ever seen in the West End, and I've pretty much seen them all. Huge congratulations to all cast and crew for creating such a magical experience. I cried my eyes out during the opening scene and several times after. Thank you all so much for such a memorable experience xx
Incredible costumes and wonderfull story. Magic!
Looooved the show.. the dances the songs the acting... everything was gorgeous.. this is my Forth time I do attend this show.. good luck !!
We saw The Lion King on 11 August 2001. My wife and I thought that it was outstanding. This time, not so I am afraid. The story line was much the same but the show lacked the excitement and character so evident before. The reference to 'farting' I felt unnecessary. (we are by no means prudish). The intensity was missing. Overall disappointing. We were seated in the stalls (T32/T31) with a restricted view behind other patrons which didn't add to the experience. Regards Chris Dix(Mr)
We absolutely loved it...
Amazing each time!
The show was fantastic! Staff at the bar were so efficient & helpful. Such a magical show in every way, singing dancing, colours.
Outstanding, remarkable, just wow!
The costumes and set were very good but sadly the singing was well below standard. In fact the words of the famous songs were hard to make out at times.
The show has been amazing. I loved the colourful costumes and the artists were amazing, funny and very talented.. I loved the stage.. The only thing the left me a bit sad, was the fact that it doesn't exist a DVD of this show (while there is for others). It would be very nice if once all the show would get fully recorded and that the DVD wpuld be merchandised.. The same CD they are selling is £5 cheaper on Amazon.. So you might loose on that. But I will surely reccomend to my friends..
Incredible show and beautiful theatre. Would highly recommend
It was a great experience for me and my family on that day. we really enjoyed and will definetely recommend my family and friends.
Absolutely outstanding. Great performances buy the whole class . One of the best shows I’ve seen on the West End
