About The Lion King Tickets

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, The Lion King is a real show stopper of a musical for the whole family.

What is The Lion King musical about?

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 the ones which made it big from the Disney film. Songs like "I Just Can't Wait to Be King", "Circle of Life" and "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" are there, but there's also the addition of some more music which helps develop the storytelling of this show.

The costumes are unique!

De kostuums waren fantastisch, het is zeker een uniek spektakel. Het is minder mijn ding, duidelijk een dansmusical. Het hele openingsnummer geweend, zo mooi! Ze proberen enorm aan te sluiten bij de film, wat niet echt mogelijk is in musical. Dat levert een prachtige scene op voor 'the stampede', maar ook zwakke dialogen die niet vertalen in een musical.

Story is of course, sets are great, but the young Simba actor was not the best and too many one/two person acts. I prefer large group acts which involve more performers. Those acts were by far the most fun. Overall a good show, but doesn’t compare to the likes of Wicked or Mary Poppins.

Disappointing, a rip off

Very bad management as no respect to the viewers. The actors are so loud behind the stage, you can't hear what's going on on the stage. The sound is very poor overall. You can barely hear. No surround sound effect at all, just flat, like there's a glass wall between you and the stage. Horrible attitude to people who are watching. All first part of the show people were constantly walking around like it was a railway station, no matter the tickets are over 200 pounds, you can not focus and just miss the best first part. Lots of people come in during the most sensitive and silent scenes which is a shame. The atmosphere is completely ruined. It's total mess and the actors feel it. Seemed they were not charged at all. Vocal parts are poor for some exception, costumes and choreography awesome. The actors copy some key features mechanically from previous actors and show no understanding of what they are doing. Alcohol promoted at the site probably helps to overcome the show however the feeling is that it's a purely commercial project which has little to do with what it was originally supposed to be. A rip off.

The Lion King, in the Lyceum theatre, expresses core principles of life (good vs evil; responibility toward others; power of free will; the victimhood of false perceptions; the interdependence and balance in life) in a majestic show. The artists, especially the young Simba an Nyala, are diversely talented and professional, the choreography and costumes exceptional. This in a theatre previously used by the romantic shakespeare, ignites one’s love for the circle of life, and the magic of theatre, again. A privilege for anyone to experience.

Second experience with Lion King

We were a bit disapointed, have seen part of Lion King in Disney Land Paris once and that experience had a higher standard. Our visit in Lyceum was first time for my two teens aged 17 and 19, we all thought it was a good show but we weren’t blown away. Unfortunately we had stats next to a family who translated and spoke during the whole show. That takes away some of the experience for the rest of us among with teenagers in the row in front who used their phones. Would have wished the staff were more around watching for phones/filming. Next time we choose a musical with more songs to lift the experience (like Mamma Mia)
