Me and my children saw this beautiful musical on the past. 27th of December. I felt really emotional. Absolutely brilliant, superb choreography, amazing costumes, 5*actors. Worth every penny.

For sure will see it again!

Let me start by saying I really like Disney. But for me this show just didn't do it. There wasn't any really stand out vocalists, the kids were trying hard but disappointing and even the big numbers felt rather tedious. Add to that a very noisy auditorium, an over priced ticket and one very very bored audience member. First time I have ever wanted to leave a west end show before the end and was so glad when the final curtain come down. There are so many better shows to see. Choose a different one than this

Went to see it on Saturday 23rd July 2014 and it was absolutely FANTASTIC from start to finish. I have always wanted to see the stage show and I wasn't disappointed one bit. I was amazed by the costumes, singing and the scenery of the show. It was well worth the money and I would go and see it again and again.

Went to this show exactly one year ago and was disappointed. The young boy who played Simba could neither sing nor dance and with the exception of Mufassah, the other actors were mediocre. I sat next to an older couple who had traveled several hours just to see the show and I felt sorry for them that their time and money was wasted and I'm not kidding.The opening scene of the animals walking through the audience was the only impressive part but it went south from there. It seemed like a training ground for actors-in-training to practice their craft. Don't believe me, see for yourself.
