Awesome, Marvelous, Spectacular,
Jun 04, 2007
reviewer: from USA
We went June 2, 2007, 8pm.


My older sons, ages 23 and 20 rolled their eyes when I got the tickets, thinking they were too old for this show. Well, they were totally in awe, as was my 12 year old! My husband and I loved it as much as the kids! We all left on a cloud, the show is so uplifting! The talent was second to none. The two children in the show were absolutely AWESOME. Everyone in the show was. And....such beautiful scenery and props. Very cleverly done!Would love to go again! I just can't rave enough about this show! My first Broadway show ever, and what a way to begin!

One of the most amazing things I have ever seen in my life,
May 06, 2007
reviewer: from New York City
First off, I would give this 100/5 stars if I could. I was so moved by this musical. Everything about the show is absolutely amazing, but the music is why I wish I could see it again. The songs "Circle of Life" and "They/He Lives in You" will bring out some of the strongest emotions you will ever experience. I was fighting back tears of sheer amazment and joy for the entire performance. This is a show for all ages and all people EVERYWHERE. If I ever am in NYC again, or anywhere else where this is playing I would not hesitate for 1 second to buy a ticket and go again. The show was just amazing. I cannot say enough good things about it. I bought the soundtrack after the show because I enjoyed the music so much. The songs mentioned before, especially "Return to Pride Rock/Circle of life (refrain)" will bring you to tears if you just sit and soak in the beauty of the music. Also, the chorus of singers dressed in traditional African clothing, were breathtaking. See it! Then see it again!

Mar 23, 2007
reviewer: from Tennessee USA
You have to see this musical. The set, the lighting, the props, the acting, the singing, the music - it is all simply amazing. There is no better way to put it - you must see The Lion King on Broadway!
