I have just got back from London after seeing this show with my cousin. It is our favourite film of all time (we are 22 & 25!) so we was extremely excited to see the lion king at theatre and it did not disappoint! Absolutely amazing! The actors are fantastic the costumes are phenomenol. We sat in row G1,2 (restricted viewing) however I did not feel restricted! There is so much going on We was in awe of everything. I would recommend this show over & over! 3 words to sum it up… Read Full Review

"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… Read Full Review

Went to see the Lion King 12th January as this show had been recommended by a few friends and family. Must say we were disappointed as the performance lacked several of the highlights that we were told to expect. We had very good aisle seats but the show had obviously change from the original as our performance did not match that of our friends and family feedback and the performers really did not lift the show. We were not alone in our disappointment as the faces on others leaving the… Read Full Review

I have just watched the lion ling at bristol and having seen many shows this is the worst. Costumes looked very poor and the singing even poorer I nearly fell asleep it was boring. Having paid £75 for this show I felt very dissapointed… Read Full Review

We saw this production on 27th June 2012 as a class because our topic in school was Africa. We all enjoyed the show and thought it was the best musical ever! The opening scene was one of the best bits because the character Rafiki's singing was sensational and so powerful. We loved seeing all the animals walk through the audience to get on stage, especially the elephant and the giraffes as the costumes were stunning and very colourful. Some of our favourite characters included Rafiki, Zazu… Read Full Review

My date surprised me with tickets to a broadway show, The Lion King. I had seen the Disney version years ago but the musical was even better. I may even let my date "surprise" me again if it goes this well… Read Full Review

I went to see The Lion King a while back and it was absolutely Amazing! The Puppetry was brilliant and the singing, dancing and acting was equally as good. I would recommend everyone that loves musicals and The Lion King to go and see this. Although the seats that I had had a restricted view, I still managed to enjoy it greatly… Read Full Review

Having been lucky enough to see five different West End productions (Jersey Boys, Les Miserables, Wicked, Billy Elliot) over the past year, the Lion King stood out for being way below the others in terms of the standard of the performances and for the behaviour of the audience. The actors seemed bored and although the costumes were lovely, the singing was not. There was so little energy and enthusiasm in this production, compared with all the other shows. The behaviour of some members of the… Read Full Review

There seem to be more bad reviews than good reviews. To be honest, I am not really surprised. This seemed very cheap and amateurish. With the exception of a few good costumes and animals, I thought this show was a complete let-down. What have the critics been watching?? Seriously??
This is only going to disappoint nostalgic theatre. I hated the singing (except adult Nala, she was good, she practically saved the show) the puppets were annoying, the music was slow at times and off-pitch.
I won't… Read Full Review

We were extremley disappointed with this production. We have seen the Lion King when it first came out a couple of years ago. The costumes and the lack of performers were NOT up to par. The costumes were old and some of them looked like they could come from the set of Poke-A-Roo. Would NOT recommend this production.

I have ordered tickets for different broadways and concerts from onthebroadway.com many times and every time I got good feedback. The customer service of this company is very helping. This company always offers lion king tickets on discounted rates and what we need. There are no any hidden charges and if any mistake happens they change the lion king tickets without charging extra fees. I want to say that everyone should order tickets from onthebroadway, no one else can provide better services… Read Full Review

I saw this and at first it was good but then it got really boring and I very nearly fell asleep during it and I was watching it at 2Pm. I would not recommend it as it did not make the sad situation seem sad. I liked all the animals but it did get boring… Read Full Review

Having seen this show twice before I was confident that taking 20 students to London to see Disney's The Lion King would be a fantastic experience of the best the West End has to offer.
I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE WRONG.
The beautiful sets, costumes, choreography and music have been completely ruined by THE WORST performances I have had the misfortune to pay money to see.
Singing: lacklustre and often out of tune.
Dancing: lacked accuracy and timing.
Sound: dynamic varied hugely… Read Full Review

The worst Lion King I have ever seen.
I have seen the Lion King 3 times in other countries, for example New York broadway.
This musical has been my favorite one, so I was so excited to watch again in THE Westend.
However, I got so disappointed by acting and singing especially young and old Simba and Nala, the main characters.
They didn't have a power to sing, couldn't hear the lyrics, off pitches sometimes especially lower keys, sooooo messy.
But still, costumes and stage design was nice to… Read Full Review
