Took my 14yr old granddaughter to see the show when she was 4. am taking her brother next week & shes insisting on coming to see it again with us.this is just an outstanding show worth every penny.love it
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.
This was the best show I have ever seen it was absolutely mesmerising, the hairs on my neck stood on end with the beautiful vocals, especially the young simba. Utterly brilliant. A must see xx
This wasn't really my thing although I also took my daughter for her 21st birthday and she loved it. The young stars were good at the acting but couldn't sing very well. The costumes were ok.
Top marks to the theatre though. I have difficultly walking and they arranged the lift up and down for me as we had booked tickets in the top circle. Also someone was trying to take photos and they were warned twice about it. Just wished the show have lived up to the rest of the experience. Also we went on quite a warm day, and it was unbearable hot in the theatre.
Absolutely a fantastic show. This is the fourth time I have seen it and would go back again and again.
Every time the West End is mentioned my Wife drools about her favourite show, "The Lion King". Having seen it in London and New York she still maintains it is the best show ever and we have been to many performances over the years.
It is our 29th wedding anniversary on Sunday 1 June and I simply could not think of a better surprise for Paula than to take her back and watch the best show around
What an absolutely amazing show. I've been a massive fan of the Lion King films and this Toped the list of all time favourite theatre shows. The show does include actors, that use the Boxes in the air to make the show feel more alive. This does restrict viewing when you are sat right at the back on or under the royal stands. The songs are fantastic as always and the actors were superb! All the music was magnificent, all live of course.
10/10 would see again!
Saw the show on 30/3/2014 with my family for my 50th. Music, cast, costumes fantastic. We'll done to everyone involved. I would probably go to an evening show next time as we had an annoying fidgeting little kid bumping the backs of our chairs. Could I also point out that given the price we paid (£65 each with no reduction for 12&15 yr old) I didn't expect to see massive tubs of popcorn everywhere. We had gone to the theatre not Showcase Cinema, rubbish left everywhere by ignorant people who can't do without stuffing their faces for a couple of hours. Come on Lyceum ditch the popcorn and return to a theatre experience.
What a totally amazing show. The costumes were fab, the dancing was brill and my favourite part was the animals walking down the aisle - what an amazing start to the show.
The only reason im giving the show a 4 and not a 5 is because of the irresponsible family that abandoned their four children next to us and sat somewhere else. They were disruptive throughout the entire show, talking, swinging on their chairs and squeezing plastic water bottles so could not enjoy the show as much as we would have liked.
I took my daughter for her 11th birthday and she thought it was amazing. The music and cast are all truly spectacular and I can honestly say it was worth every penny. Not only to see the look on my daughters face, but it's clear to see the amount of work that goes into the costumes that does it for me. The songs are beautiful and moving, the cast put in so much effort and the stage comes alive so much so that you see far beyond the stage and it really did capture our imagination. Loved it.
