You will never forget the theatrical event that is Disney's THE LION KING....

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

It lives up to its name as you see so many people in different costumes and a different way of looking at theater. They have binoculars attached to the seat in front of you in case you are seating at a distance. Spoiler Alert: Many of the characters enter from the crowd which is very surprising.

I start saying that I'm not an expert or a follower of theatres. But since I saw the trailer on youtube The Lion King was inspiring me. I have done the ticket through the website, really clear and easy. Price is ok. When you get there to collect the ticket is really well organised with only one person going in... More

The set used for this was incredible the crew made full use of the hydraulic floors. The young actors were great and overall this was one of the best shows I've seen in years

I had wanted to see this for many years and my partner brought us tickets for the day before my birthday as a present. Thank you so much for such an energetic, mesmerising and unreal performance, it lived up to everything I had hoped for!

What an amazing show! Just a pity that it is so ridiculously expensive. It's symptomatic of the rest of Theatreland, but even so... The show itself is well worth watching. The actors, the story, the music are all phenomenally well done. It is very easy to find the theatre, and the staff were helpful once inside. Will return when I've... More

Staying in Covent Garden

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
