I have no words! It’s the best show Ive ever seen. The music was spectacular! The acting was amazing! The scenography was out of this world!

Very disappointed, particularly with the cast. They were generally not strong singers, actors or dancers! I watch many shows and work in the industry, and was honestly close to walking out in the interval. Only a few cast members held their own. The costumes and sets were fantastic, but the sounds wasn’t great. Overall extremely disappointing and not at all the standard I would expect from a west end production.

We travelled from Manchester to watch the Lion King at the Lyceum. This was a gift for my wifes 40th Birthday and it was also my sons first trip to London. The show was amazing but the experience was ruined by extremely hot and uncomfortable temperatures in the theatre. Both my wife and son felt sick with the heat and almost passed out. No air conditioning it seems

Lovely classical theatre. Creative costumes and scenery. It was impressive how the versatile scene was creatively changed to arouse different sentiments. However, it was too hot, at least where we were seated so don’t forget to bring water with you. Toilets were nice and clean.

I Love Musicals and it was overdue for me to see The Lion King! The performance was flawless. Though I had the feeling that some of the other theatre goers were more in a „Cinema“ Mode for the show- chatting during the performane, leaving all kind of trash behind.

The real danger with long running West End shows is that they’ll get tired as the cast grow bored of performing it month after month. The Disney organisation is very good at ensuring things stay fresh by regularly adding new performers to the London production from around the world.
This month it has been announced that New Zealander Nicholas Afoa is to take over the role of Simba in THE LION KING at the Lyceum Theatre.The West End has a new Lion King

Julie Taymor’s musical staging of the classic Disney cartoon, now in its 16th year in the West End, gives audiences from all over the world the chance to reconnect with their inner child and to enjoy a truly magnificent and creative spectacle. The story, about a lion cub who must win back the trust of his tribe after being unjustly exiled, still inspires and resonates with audiences of all ages.Review of The Lion King
