I went to see this show in Febuary 2009 with my college group, we were all abit worried that we wouldnt enjoy it... it was the opposite. Noone had a bad word to say about it! It was amazing and just takes your breath. I was that mesmerised i couldnt even sing along!!!!! I wanted to watch it over and over again! The best bit by far was when Simba was older and looking into the pond to see his father, and the monkey is singing... this is immensly amazing!!!! I would reccommend this to any age, but it is definatly a must see! And watch out for that part above.

Where do i start?, It was one of the best shows i have seen, The costumes were undiscribable, trying to explain them just does not give them justice!!, they were very imaginatative. From the Hyenas to the Monkey, the Lions to the Giraffes. amazing just does not cover it. I was on a weekend trip London to see the show with 7 other ladies ( ages from 19 to 70), and it was well worth it, from watching the show to seeing and hearing peoples reactions, and the childrens delight. A big thank you to all members of the show, It was great!.

If I could only go and see one West End performance, it would have to be this. Got to be the best show I have ever seen, It has surpassed everything else I have viewed in The West End. I came out with goosepimples on my skin and my eyes flooded with tears, it was that good. Absolutely phenominal, cannot recommend it enough. I'm going down to London for a second viewing later in the year !

The opening did it for us. We sat in the stalls row M Seats 23-26. The elephant was within touching distance when it, and many more characters came down the aisles to the stage. Our heads didn't know which way to turn as the opening scene is so spectacular, the costumes are beyond belief and superbly designed and mastered by the cast. How anyone can say they didn't enjoy this is beyond me, the scene with the flying birds was amazing because the cast also flew some from the boxes allowing everyone in the theatre to feel involved. A MUST GO TO SEE IT SHOW DEFINATELY!!How did those men in the giraffe costumes do it so well?

This show is amazing ! The music is fab and Rafiki has the most incredible singing voice and natural acting talent that she not only will have you in tears but steals the show - which is no easy feat amongst a great cast.
