“Oh.My.God amazing ”

Written on: 18/09/2013 by Sarajane88 (1 review written)

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

“Amazing trip to the World of Africa”

Written on: 03/09/2013 by stgiles2013 (15 reviews written)

"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

“The standard must have changed!”

Written on: 15/01/2013 by Angieboo2 (1 review written)

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

“Amazing, awsome, magnificent!!!!”

Written on: 29/06/2012 by BasilBuster (1 review written)

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

“BRILLIANT!!!”

Written on: 19/05/2012

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

“What a disappointment”

Written on: 04/09/2011 by Bigbirdlarry (1 review written)

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

Well 3 years on, I have just been to see the lion king on its tour, in liverpool. I have wanted to see the show for a long time now, but sadly I have to agree with all your comments. It felt more like a pantomime, with very little energy in the acting & singing. I have also never been to a show with such a bad mannered audience. Lots of talking and bored fidgity children. One such child behind us was so bored he decided it more fun to put popcorn in our hair and continually kick the back of the chair. I am such a big musical fan but this was a big dissapointment.

“There seem to be more bad reviews than good reviews....”

Written on: 06/05/2011

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

Written on: 02/05/2011 by radioroyfromBarrieOntario (1 review written)

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.
Extremly DISAPPOINTED!

Written on: 19/04/2011 by pronak (4 reviews written)

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

Written on: 08/04/2011

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.
Acting: PANTOMIME
Sound: dynamic varied hugely… Read Full Review

“The worst Lion King I have ever seen. ”

Written on: 25/03/2011

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
