Owner description: 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

My brother bought tickets for our mum and my family which included 2 boys aged 5 and 8. We all enjoyed it and now the boys cannot stop singing. Great family theatre, great costumes and singing.

Although clearly aimed at children, this musical is so beautifully crafted that it is thoroughly enjoyable for adults too. The story is very close to the film version but the staging is stunning with wonderful lighting and amazing customes and puppet-animals. If you haven't seen it this may sound silly but it isn't - the puppets somehow capture the feel and movement of the animals in a convincing and stunningly beautiful way. Good story, good music and brilliant staging - a thoroughly enjoyable for all ages.

Me and my daughter (13 yro) love it. Amazing
We weren't plan to watch this show at the first place. I just search the ticket online 3 days before the show. No luck, so I decided to go to the ticket box @ Lyceum Theatre a day before the show. Thank God, I got the ticket with much better seat and lower price than online (even though we had to come again on the show day @ exactly 19.00 PM to collect the ticket on freezing October).

Thank Kaena

Well staged and a great production. Aimed more at a younger audience but still a good night out for the adults. Downside is the thaetre itself which has a lousy selection of drinks in the Royal Circle bar (no Orange Juice, no slimline Tonic .... Doh!) and completely inadequate toilet facilities especially for the ladies !
