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!
Right from the start this musical is mesmerising and so clever. Rafiki and Timon were outstanding. The Conductor was also fascinating to watch and the percussionist in the box on the left of the stage. We were in Row C 11 and 12. Maybe a bit too close. The effect of the animals might have been better further back with a bit more height looking down on the stage. Nevertheless, if you get the opportunity to go grab it. You won’t be disappointed 😀👍
Absolutely fantastic show!
What an amazing show, absolutely brilliant from start to finish. My 6yr old and my husband and I absolutely loved it.
Took my mother for her 80th birthday and the whole family ranging from 11- 80 years old ( three generations). The entire family said The Lion King was the best they had seen. We all laughed and cried and loved it! The best family musical.
The show was unbelievable! The actors, musicians, dancers, lights, and props were choreographed to perfection.
If you can only get to see one show in London, this is the one to see! Why? Because you won't want to miss an experience that touches your heart and soul long after the curtain has fallen. I'm amazed that after 20 years of performances, this production is as fresh as the opening night in 1999. Incredible. I'm still dancing...
I think the best show I had ever seen
Show superb but totally spoilt but the lack of air conditioning... it was a celebration for my wife’s 50th. We couldn’t wait to get out of the place to get some fresh air ..... such a shame
An absolutely amazing show, full of wonder. Spectacularly eye catching with all the beautiful colours and costumes. The opening scene was breathtaking, so many amazing things to see, didn’t know where to look. Loved the connection with Africa throughout.
I really enjoyed This performance of the lion king m, I would definitely recommend this as it brings to life a classic movie. Great atmosphere
What a great show, was fantastic much better than I could imagine
The only way I can describe the entire experience is just pure magic. The songs were incredible, the cast was amazing! I really felt like I was inside the making of the movie but in real life.
Very vibrant & visually interactive.
We were spellbound, it was brilliant, and so clever . Loved every minute..
I enjoyed every second of the production. Surprises kept coming, we felt part of the production. Fantastic costumes, lighting, acting, singing, drumming and dancing.
Seat A11 Grand Circle great view comfortable seat Fantastic show great costumes and humour. Janet
The most amazing show I have ever watched. Me and my boyfriend had the best time. The show was everything I could of ever dreamed of and more. Definitely will be back again this year
A fabulous evening, stunning costumes, scenery, singing, puppetry, dance and familiar music. Pricey refreshments, comfortable seats and temperature.
This is the second time I’ve seen the lion king but I could watch it over and over, love it!!
It was a great show, the most amazing spectacle with beautiful costumes and sets!
The costumes sete magnificent
Would highly recommend!
How can anything negative be said on such a perfect play? The costumes, the acting, the choreography as well as the voices were of outstanding quality and of course the animated animals were astounding. I was there with my granddaughter and was just as moved as she was.
Unfortunately a member of my family had a heart attack and clearly that was priority no 1. However when contacting the team to at least postpone date I received back the policy without much care for what I was going through. Not a great experience
Costume was very creative. I went to see with my husband and 2 over 19 years old children. All of us enjoyed.
We would like to recommend to everyone to go and see the most fabulous production of The Lion King at the Lyceum. It is so well acted and produced you don’t feel you are watching the performance but part of it. Recommend sitting in the stalls to fully enjoy the characters joining from the back to the stage.
I would highly recommend going to see. Every detail was elaborate, from the acting to the costumes, the music and the atmosphere. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment!
An amazing performance, brilliant costumes, music, singing and sets.
Great theatre and fantastic performances, props, scene with the music on point!
Having watched Lion King in New York i was excited to compare it to the show in London. The theatre, the location, the production and the cast were fantastic. However i was sitting front of a gentleman who deemed it acceptable o talk through the first part of the performance and a loud tone. It ruined the experience. Because of the tone and pitch i couldn’t hear the tone of the cast and his loud conversation somewhat ruined my enjoyment. The first part would receive a 1/5 star and the second part a 5/5 star (he either left or he became quiet). I understand alcohol adds to the enjoyment but when someone is visibly drunk/loud and disrupts the enjoyment for otherw, something should be done.
Had a bless
I thought the overall performance was great and the Hyenas were particularly well portrayed, however I felt that the costumes for the 2 main performers, the lion kings young and old were not convincing lacking a realistic fur mane and lacking fur on the upper body and arms.
We went yesterday, and it was the best thing we had ever seen would highly recommend to anyone
Absolutely loved it! So energetic and creative.
I'm enjoyed every minute of show!! I was with my girlfriend and we both cried!! Was really Amazing!!
The Lion King is a fantastic show,the actors and actresses are amazing a long with the cheorographers. It was very enjoyable and funny and there were good serious parts too. It was a great atmosphere. Already would like to see it again.
It’s my 4th time seeing it and it gets better each time! Highly recommend watching this spectacular show!!
The gasp of wonder from my seven year old son was the only accolade in my opinion Lion King needed. The wildebeest stampede scene was superb. In fact I watched this production nearly 10 years ago and it has not lost its magic and I loved the little cheeky one liners that made the sure relevant to some little members of the audience ie references to Frozen!
The show was fantastic and myself, my wife and daughter loved it. It was funny, performances were outstanding, music was great I would recommend the show to any one
Purchased for wife and daughter - their comments, 'exceptional' and 'brilliant'. Disappointed to note 25% additional fee on 'face value' via 'Box Office' - so be aware!
Great production and set. Costumes great. Performance of some of the main characters a little disappointing may be because the sound quality. Rifikee was the best. Maybe after so many years it's losing its oomph. Glad we went but left slightly disappointed. Especially since it's more expensive than other shows.
Absolutely amazing show, with a talented cast, humour and a pleasure to watch.
It was amazing. Would recommend. Go watch.
It was a fabulous show to the musicians to the characters costumes all perfect will book again and again .
Took my grown up daughter to see this production after many previous attempts failed, she was not disappointed, the sets were amazing, the opening made us well up it was so emotional. Acting and singing were powerful, overall it was a great experience.
Wow, what an amazing show and experience everyone that started in the performance should be super proud of them selves. Best show I've ever seen.
Just one word. Amazing
Such a good show from start to finish xxxx
Great show, fantastic costumes and cast!
