"The Lion King Musical" is one of the "must-see" attractions of London. The story of little lion Simba, growing up as the future King, is highly moving and not only designed for children.
The actors and actresses do an amazing job and are really talented. The Lyceum Theatre itself is worth seeing as it is only for "The Lion King" performances and therefore has an African touch.
As soon as the first scene starts you feel yourself sent to the African desert. You could see that the producers really tried to make the musical very detailed, having put a lot of effort into creating the stage set and the costumes of various animals participating in the musical.
Furthermore, the music is haunting. When I went home after having seen the Musical, I couldn't stop listening to my favourite songs for days.
Nevertheless, tickets are quite expensive so you either have to book them in advance, or hope that you will get a good ticket if you try to buy it the day you want to go. Expect to pay at least £40 if you want to have a seat without a restricted view.
But let me tell you that it is really worth seeing and it was among the best experiences I had in London.
