5.0 star rating Philly Stein from London, UK.


I am not a lover of theatre and visit occasionally for my wife's benefit. I usually sleep through most of the show. Can't say that about Lion King at the Lyceum! From start (the amazing parade of "animals" on to the stage) to finish (a rousing finale) this is an amazing show. So vibrant and so colourful. Even a curmudgeon like me was moved to warm applause after each set-piece. Marvellous.

Saw Lion King in 2000 with my daughter, sister and niece and we all loved it, and for me the best musical ever! I see a musical when each year alone visiting London, and have been 'dying' to see Lion King again, but with someone! At last, this year my husband and I are taking our 6 1/2 year old grandson to London to see it, and I am looking so much forward to it! My husband has so far only heard my praisings, but I am sure he'll love it. Our grandson has not yet learned English, so we have prepared with a Norwegian dubbed DVD. But the costumes and songs on stage are so fabulous that we think he will remember this event even if an unknown language! I only hope the performance will run for so many more years to come that we'll get the opportunity to take our other grandchildren to London to see it when they are around 7 years old, which will be in 2015 and 2017!!

When I was told my group was going to be seeing the Lion King, i was unsure as I'd never seen the film before and it was regarded as a kids show. But i got such an eye opener, it was AMAZING! The cast interacted with the crowd, they were never out of tune, and it had my full attention at all times and i LOVED it. We stayed at the Rushmore Hotel and this was also really good as well and i must say this show was the highlight of our trip.

We went to the Lyceum Theatre in London to see the Lion King on Thursday 19th August 2010. It was a family treat and it was amazing!!! The talent of the actors and actresses, singers and dancers was great and the way in which they brought the African creatures to life was enthralling!!!! We all thouroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone any where in the world. FAB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
