You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING. Brilliantly re-imagined by acclaimed director Julie Taymor, Disney's beloved film has been transformed into a spectacular stage production that explodes with glorious colours, stunning effects and enchanting music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his destined role as King of the Pridelands. 'There is simply nothing else like it.' The New York Times

The venue is dated but the show is not. We went to see it based on hearty recommendations from our friends. My husband & I both enjoyed it very much.

Immersive experience in the Lion King universe. I was impressed with the ingeniosity they recreated some of the most memorable scenes from the motion picture. Also, actors had great voices, music was excellent. Nothing to complain. I enjoyed it.
