AMAZING!

I saw the production in St. Louis the last time it was here and was blown away! This time I am bringing my granddaughters. What an incredible experience for it is so much more than simply a musical.

5.0 star rating DebS from Richmond, VA

AMAZING!

I viewed this show in NY a couple of years ago and was totally amazed of the imagery and choreography. It's easy to get yourself involved in the story as if you're right there amongst the animals. Truly a must see production for the whole family!

5.0 star rating Paula from Richmond, VA

BEST PLAY EVER

This was the best musical I have ever seen! The costumes were phenomenal, the colors breathtaking and the music/singing was exceptional. This is the only time I've planned to go for and encore - this is definitely a must see!

5.0 star rating Donna Bowe from Anytown, AT 55555

THE LION KING

This musical really rocked my world. I saw it twice in San Francisco and once in San Jose. I'll see it again soon in San Francisco for the 4th time. I LOVE this show!

LION KING BROADWAY PRODUCTION

I saw the Lion King in Houston. It was the best, live production that has ever been performed. I loved it and I am taking my 17y/o grandson to witness the experience. It was powerful, brought me to tears and it gave me goose bumps. The production was spectaular and I don't know that any live production can match it and certainly cannot top it.

5.0 star rating Bern O. from Detroit, Michigan

UNBELIEVABLE!

Right from beginning to end we were mesmerized with the music and the outstanding characters involved in this production. Our seats (aisle) were fabulous. We saw this production at the Detroit Opera House on Thursday Feb.13, 2013..Would definately go again...Thank you to all involved in this spectacul production..

5.0 star rating SASSYCATT from DETROIT MICHIGAN

MAGICAL

I SAW THIS AT THE DETROIT OPERA HOUSE ON MAR 3 2013 AND I MUST SAY THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH ADJECTIVES TO TRULY JUSTIFY THIS PERFORMANCE. THE ACTORS, THE COSTUMES, THE PERFORMANCE, THE STAGE PRESENCE, JUST TO NAME A FEW WERE BEYOND SPECTACULAR. I WAS TRANSFORMED TO A CHILD AGAIN...THE COLORS, THE MUSIC, NOTHING WAS LEFT TO CHANCE...ALL ABOVE AND BEYOND...THANK YOU CAST AND CREW GREAT JOB...A MAGICAL EXPERIENCE
