The Lion King Reviews

"I absolutely loved it! I was totally absorbed the whole way through, the costumes, the music, the comedy, the set, everything was stunning, I have to say as an avid theatre fan this was the best! Tracey, Chelmsford "

"West End shows don’t come much more spectacular than The Lion King. There’s a mix of puppetry, visual illusion and clever physical movement to suggest the different animals of the African Pridelands. And there’s that great music by Elton John and Hans Zimmer" Tim, Highbury

"It is definitely one of the most visual and moving shows I've seen in the West End. The story and music are fantastic, but the production really comes to life with the staging and costumes - the masks and puppetry are sensational" Lisa, Brighton

"I would recommend this show to anyone young or old - fantastic! Captivating and fun, it’s easy to see why it’s been around for so long!" Jessica, New York
