TE BEST MUSICAL EVER!
It was amazing! I thought it was like the movie. I was wrong. It it awsome. The costumes look so real. You will never forget this musical. The actors really sound like the real characters in the movie! Watch it, you will be amazed.

!!!!!!!!!! WOW !!!!!!!!!!
Wow! Amazing! Fantastic! Loved It! I had chills from the opening number! This play is phenominal! The costumes, the singing, and the dancing kept our entire group (there were 7 of us) riveted the entire time. This is a must see -- I can not put into words how great this was. I wish I could contact the cast to let them know how much I enjoyed each and every talent on that stage. Don't miss this one -- you will not be disappointed!

THE KING IS A LION
The Lion King, How should I put this? It's more, understandable than the movie because they follow everything, they never miss a line, I mean.. it's a childrens theatre spectical. I went with my two sisters, my mom, dad, and grandma. I can tell you, there is no show better than Lion King. Better than Beauty and the Beast it was wonderful. Please pick Lion King to be your favorite. I LOVED IT!

MARCUS AND GLORIA, APRIL 15,2006 SHOW
“Spectacular”- still does not do the performance justice. I cryed in the opening scene, and ending. The costumes will take your breathe away, the performace left nothing to the imagination. This was a birthday gift to my 9 year old son, and he reminds me every chance he gets, that this was the best present he ever had. This is a definite must see... for all age!

Lion King is my favorite Disney movie, and I didn't think it could get any better -- until we saw the musical. The costumes were beautiful, I loved all the bright colors! And they added a few songs, which were all amazing! I love Kissy Simmons, she's such a beautiful performer. The entire cast was magnificent, and I was very impressed by the kids playing young Simba and Nala especially. I bought the soundtrack at intermission, and it's still one of my favorites... besides Phantom and Wicked. :) The costumes were my favorite part, but the entire show was brilliant! 10 stars!

What can I say...an excellent show with an outstanding cast. My sister-in-law saw the same show in Florida and it was staged completely different, enjoyed this more. You must go and see this.

ONE OF THE MOST AMAZING THINGS I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE
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!
