Visually Outstanding

What makes this show special is the stage set designs and the costumes and all the visual elements. Unlike most other shows where costumes and stage sets are two separate categories, there is a blend in the stage set and the costumes in the show. The puppet like figures that are in the shape of the animals controlled by the actors on stage definitely contribute to the visual elements of the show. I had the chance to see the production at rear mezzanie seats last summer and it was definitely worth it. The characters and costumes along with the beautiful stage sets really does bring together the safari world and from far away, everything looks like real animals! It is a perfect combination of art, entertainment and music :) Because Lion King is able to bring all these three elements together, it becomes a great show. It's also a great show to watch with Family and Children especially when the cartoon that children love is brought live at a whole new dimension. It is also a great show for children because it really teaches the value of family and the importance of having parents in our lives which is of course no other than Walt Disney's trait. Because the show stays loyal to this trait, the show becomes suitable for everyone. I best recommend front mezzanie seats for those of you on a low budget. It is affordable and yet you can see the entire show as if you are in the safari itself

Excellent! Highly recommended! Wonderful for all ages!

Excellent! Wonderful!
Great music. Amazingly creative puppetry. Beautiful stage set. Amazing how they were able to pull this African Savannah setting off on a stage! Beautiful use of all African culture, wardrobe, art and music.
The acting is over the top. The show takes place not only on the stage but all around you at times and even over your head. A completely amazing experience. Highly recommended. Went to see it twice! It was THAT good!
Worth every cent!

awesome show!

This show was absolutely awesome!!!!!! I had seen it 7 or 8 years ago and I've been wanting to see it again for a while. I finally went and it was well worth it. All the costumes and sets were out of this world! (My favorite costumes were the cheetah, elephant, and Scar.) this show is awesome for all ages - not just little kids. it's better if you know the movie before but you dont need to. in a nut shell, out of the 10 broadway shows i saw, the lion king is definitely up there even though i loved all of them:) its a must see for everyone!!! theres a good reason all the shows are sold out!

Grade: A+

Don't think you've seen it, if you've seen the movie.

This is awesome. It's the same story, but the sets make it a whole other experience.

Awesome!!!!!

I loved the show so much that I'am planning to go see it again. I took my 6 year-old and she stood still and was actually enjoying every bit of it. I was so excited from the begining to the end. I cried at the ending because the show was so spectacular!
