BEAUTIFUL!

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!

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!

EXCELLENT SHOW....

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.

GREAT SHOW BUT VERY POOR AIR CONDITION

the show was great but the aircondition inside the theatre itself is poor when i conplain they said they would correct the problem the second was the same you could see the audiance fanning themselve with the playbill booklets and whatever else the could find i reccommend skipping it with the price i paid for three tickets plus what they charge for a bottle water you would think the can give some air condition i gets they wanted to make you feel you are in africa
