The Lion King description

The Lion King, a roaring stage success!

Transport yourself and your children to the magical world of the African bush, where life-size animals roam the stage and a magical tale of triumph against evil unfolds. With six coveted Tony Awards, a Grammy award for the show album and two prestigious Olivier awards under its belt, this is a real show stopper of a musical for the whole family.

The Lion King – The story

Join little Simba, the next king of the Pride, in his fight to take his rightful place on the throne. Simba the lion cub is looking forward to becoming the king of the Pride. But his wicked Uncle Scar scuppers his plans and when tragedy strikes, Simba runs away, leaving Uncle Scar and the nasty hyenas in charge. Under their mis-management, the Pride Lands soon become barren and everyone who lives there is in big trouble. Can Simba and his good friends Timon and Pumbaa solve the problem, and can he restore the essential Circle of Life?

The best of Disney magic transferred to the West End stage

The Lion King the movie was absolutely fantastic. But good as it is, it doesn’t prepare you for the sheer magic of this superb stage production. The Lion King features a host of amazing creatures in fantastic costumes, superb choreography and an intimate stage experience you never get with 2d film.

Elton John’s runaway best-selling musical score, together with Tim Rice’s unforgettable lyrics, makes this show really special. Elton’s song Circle of Life sets the stage, giving a powerful introduction to this delightful tale about coming of age that’s just as relevant to humans as it is to the creatures the show portrays.

A roaring success of a musical, attracting full-house audiences since opening in 1997, it’s a tour de force in professional puppetry, delivering a genuine spectacle that’s very hard to forget. Eighteen foot high giraffes canter along the aisles, amazingly real-looking gazelles trot by, and a herd of wildebeest stampede just a few feet away. Never mind the children… adults who see The Lion King are equally astonished by the sheer skill and realism of the musical’s animal puppet stars.

Apparently it took an enormous seventeen thousand hours to make the puppets and masks. A hundred and fourteen people are involved in creating each showing. And more than fifty million of us, from all over the world, have enjoyed The Lion King on stage so far.

The Lion King songs

Expect to sing along to twenty fabulous show tunes including, in act one, Nants' Ingonyama/Circle of Life, the Grasslands Chant, The Morning Report, The Lioness Hunt, I Just Can't Wait to Be King and six more absolute classics. Act two kicks off with One by One before telling the spellbinding tale of Simba through The Madness of King Scar, Shadowland, Endless Nights, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, the all-time favourite tune Can You Feel the Love Tonight and more, finishing off with a rousing performance of King of Pride Rock/Circle of Life.

A great spectacle with some disappointing musical moments

The show lived up to the hype in terms of its magnificent costumes and staging. The lead singers in the first act were solid and the rest of the cast were energetic and committed. The second act was a little disappointing. The actors playing the adult Nala and Simba had weaker voices. Simba in particular had a weak speaking voice and patchy singing voice that made it difficult to believe he was the king of the jungle and son of Mufasa, who in stark contrast had a deep, rich voice. The ensemble performance of “Can You Feel the Love Tonight” was also decidedly underwhelming.

Watch the movie instead

The best "number" of the show was the opening. It went downhill from there. The bigger puppets were good and they were less wooden than some of the live actors. The Disney movie does not translate well onto the stage. The use of dancing to replace some of the film sequences left me thinking that the ensemble could have done with 4 weeks more rehearsal. The dancing just wasn't as "slick" as one would expect from a West End Production. Also, the silly hats for the characters faces just did not work as they were practically invisible from the back of the grand circle. This was a song and dance show about animals in the african savannah with an underlying story. Cats didn't really have a story. But it was a song and dance show about animals and it knocked spots off this mediocre offering.

Great show. Avoid the afternoon shows if you want to hear it. Too many school children!

We really enjoyed the show but we’re really disappointed and upset with our seats. We paid £600 for this show and we were surrounded by a huge group of young school children that spent the entire time rustling crisp packets, kicking seats and talking throughout the show. The noise from such a huge group eating and opening packets of food the entire time made it really difficult to actually hear parts of the show and definitely impacted our enjoyment of the performance. I wouldn’t have minded if I had not paid so much money for my tickets. I feel it was unfair to pay such a huge price for these tickets.

I loved everything of this show. However I would advise other visitors not to buy tickets for grand circle (the cheapest ones). On this area you will be too far from the stage and you will see the actors and stage from the top which will prevent you too see the optical illusions and fully understand the atmosphere they want create. For example, there were a part where they showed a river by shaking a bué fabric. On where I was sat I could see some lights passing behind the fabric and I couldn't understand what it was. Then I realised it was fishes (the optical illusion was creating a river with fishes).
