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!

“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!

!!!!!!!!!! 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!

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!
