Wonderful show, but at that price I do think the seating should be acceptable if not especially comfortable. Grand Circle C13 is in need of attention. Also object to £4.50 for mean little tub of ice cream. If you are taking children Bills next door do a very good childrern's menu, £6.50 for a 3 course meal including brownie & ice cream.

Saw the show last Saturday, didn't know what to expect but it was absolutely brilliant, great singers, dancers, costumes and a great story line and funny too, a wonderful 70th birthday present from my children. Would recommend anyone to see it.

I got tickets for wicked at west end for 2014 Christmas and it was of the scale but I got tickets to the lion king this year and it was the best thing I have ever seen. All the music bought the whole show together along with all the beautiful and intricate animal costumes. The singing and acting was mind blowing. I would definitely recommend it if you want a unreal performance.

Can't believe having seen the Lion King at the end of November it will be 11 times, I have never written a review 😘 The musical is outstanding, and shows just why it has a long standing history at the Lyceum Theatre.

From the first time of seeing it, I was blown away, I am a mature adult, and have gone on to bring all of my family and granchildren too 😄

Wherever you sit within the theatre is magical, from beginning to end, I will never get tired of singing hakuna matata!

Hope you love it as much as I do 😄

Brilliant show in every way, cannot fault the performers.

BUT the air quality in the theater was appalling. It was a

capacity crowd which is good news for the theater but for the

audience most unpleasant. I did not dare get out of my seat in

the interval for fear of fainting. A friend with me asked for the

air conditioning to be increased, which it seems fell on deaf ears.

An otherwise great outing spoiled by what I think is a health hazzard.

Went to see the show today with my daughter and we both really enjoyed it again- this was our second visit. The music, staging and the animals coming down through the audience are magical - especially the birds. Wonderful children actors. Brilliant!
