I watched the video probably hundreds of times with my kids when they were young so knew the story well. I thought they did a great job of the costumes for the animals, very creative. The sets and costumes were amazing, but the singing was not fantastic in my opinion. And we found that some of the actors, the two lion brothers in particular, did not speak clearly and we had a hard time understanding what they said. The two young people who played the young lions were fantastic. All in all we enjoyed it, we had front row balcony seats which were great, we had a wonderful view of the stage and goings on. I did bring binoculars to see the makeup and costumes in more detail which I would recommend.

I knew it would be great, yet The Lion King still managed to exceed my expectations. The consuming is incredible, the music is moving and powerful from beginning to end and the cast coming down the isles from the house to the stage is so moving and powerful. The Lion King is one of my favorite movies so seeing the show was well overdue and I’m glad I experienced it. Bravo!!!!!

The lion king is one of best performances on Broadway. We took the kids and they were on the edges of their sears mesmerized by the animals come to life. The music, the scenery and the story make this show the hit it is.
