Went as a family of 3 and all had a fantastic time. The staging of the show was absolutely amazing. In my opinion this is a must see.
What a wonderful performance! Would watch it over and over again! Amazing
I cannot day anything pet than the lion king is the best theatrical show my girlfriend and I have seen!! We would highly recommend everyone goes to experience this show!! Fantastic!!!
Took my boyfriend for his 18th and we both loved it. Production is such good quality it’s not wonder the tickets aren’t cheap. Would go again and soon!
2nd time I have seen the lion Kind and the second time it didn’t disappoint. Great show, makes you feel like a child again. However the experience was spoilt by the family sat behind us. They continued to talk and let their son kick the back of our chairs throughout the performance. Maybe I won’t choose a matinee next time.
Another great performance and great use of costumes.
Fantastic proformance by all involved, would definitely recommend going to see this show..... brilliant.
We chose this musical as a family day out instead of Christmas presents! We all loved it and enjoyed singing along with the songs.
Took my grandson for his 7th birthday and this was his reaction. "Amazing and fantastic when can we come again!"
I took my wife here to celebrate her birthday, I knew she would like it but wasn't too sure myself, I am pleased to say that the show, performance and choreography were amazing and enjoyed everything.
Spectacular show would 100% recommend to a friend
Fantastic as expected, definitely woorth seeing but would i spend more than £150 for the best seat in the house probably not
The show was amazing and lived up to all expectations.
I would go watch it 100000 times! The effects, the music, the colours, everything was just incredible!
Interesting version of lion king that provides an amusing visual and acoustic experience.
A truly magical performance! My family and had a fantastic evening. Everything from the music, dances, costumes, sets, and performers was incredible. This is the second time I have seen the show and I will likely go again. There is humour for people of all ages. If you still have not see this show, you need to!
Myself and my daughter have been planning on seeing this show for years. I finally got round to buying tickets for her Christmas present. We went last night and we both loved it. The music, dancing and costumes were all incredible.
Best show I have ever seen! Outstanding.
One of the best shows iv seen, gave me goosebumps! Every character was Fantastic! And the voices were brilliant!
Birthday treat for my grandaughter aged 4yr so Mum, Daughter and grandaughter had an afternoon at the theatre, we were all totally blown away by the music, dance and costumes, the animals were amazing.
Best show I have seen in years. It has a very simple plot making it great for all ages Has a moral to tell but done in a fun way. The props and animal puppeteering are fabulous. The use of the stage is perfect and the music very atmospheric. The choreography is ingenious and the vocals first rate. It is so good I guess it must have had a lot of improvements and updates since the first performance, if not, then it was conceived by a team of Geniuses.
A spectacular show,; the set and effects were amazing. We loved the characterisation and exciting choreography. Everything was well managed; no queueing to get in or at the bar. Well done to the Lyceum, the staff and The Lion King.
It was absolutely amazing me and my girlfriend loved the whole show the acts were amazing and very talented. We will definitely come back.
It was the second time I saw it and this for sure was the best! At the end of the show one staff offers us to use the lift!!! We were sitted on K40, and K39 and he realizes that my sister is pregnant and offers us to gondown by lift! I think that it was so kind and polite. Wish i have seen his name do congrats him.
Excellent show with great costumes and singing. The movement of the actors for the animals was amazing. I left a comment on trip advisor.
The show was fantastic, production outstanding!
We had an amazing afternoon thankyou
Amazing show from start to finish, would definitely recommend for young and old.
One of the best shows I have seen. My 7 year old son also thoroughly enjoyed the show.
Truly amazing show - brilliant cast & staging - theatre at its best. Overall experience very slightly spoilt by VERY young children in nearby seats (surprising as evening performance) making noise & in & out of seats to toilet which meant us standing to let them out each time
An amazing show. The highest level of production values I have seen in any west end show. Wonderful costumes, beautiful singing. Death and fighting scenes handled very well for those with young children in the audience. The show is the same story as the movie.
I last saw the show 10 years ago and it doesn't disappoint a second time round. Amazing performances and singing voices throughout the cast. One or two moments of uncertainty but they were soon drowned out by the incredible show and talent. Would go again as third time's the charm!
The opening seen filled me with promise i was close to tears with emotion at seeing all the amazing artistic puppets appearing and the characters all singing in unison. However things quickly went down hill all of the main characters had poor singing voices and were no where near loud enough to project thier voices on the big stage. On or two characters stood at as having slightly mote talent but all in all the cast were not great. I cannot help but compare to the disney which had some amazing singers and this performance was of a very poor standard in comparison. Children seated near to us seemed bored and uninterested by the second half. The best thing about it were the large artistic puppet animals but they were not given nearly enough stage time.
We did not receive the tickets for the show . Upon showing your confirmation reference at the lion king box office we were denied entry and tickets were not issued to us. They stated that tickets had not been issued from the third party website that is you. It was humiliating to be not able to attend the show and as our last day in London it became the very unexpected miserable spoiler to our holiday. I would never recommend or use Fromtheboxoffice for any reservation from here on.
Not a bad production. South African performance much better
We enjoy every single second of the show
It’s the third time I’ve seen the Lion King. Every time it is pure magic!
Amazing set construction and acting 🎭
I took my 6 year old girl and 5 year old boy and they loved it. Their words were mummy that’s was amazing best show we have seen.
Fantastic show best ever and want to go again
Absolutely fabulous production!
V beautiful enjoyed it
This was a birthday present for both me and my mum. We both were hooked from the beginning, singing along while rocking from side to side. Actors were fantastic, the costumes were beautiful and the stage was amazingly done. I can only speak positive about The Lion King. A wonderful evening out. Thank you :)
I ENJOYED EVERY SECOND!!! IT WAS SO BEAUTIFULLY ORCHESTRATED!!!! I CRIED, I LAUGHED AHH GENUINELY THE BEST THEATRE EXPERIENCE !!! I HOPE MY ENTHUSIASM AND SATISFACTION OF THE PLAY CAN BE SEEN IN THIS ALL CAPS REVIEW!!!
