A COMPLETE DISAPPOINTMENT, ESPECIALLY FROM THE MUSIC PERSPEC

We were a group of eight people who had never seen Lion King Broadway show before but had watched the movie and listened to those delightful melodies from CD many times. We paid top $$$ for the tickets hoping and expecting to finally enjoy the famous Broadway show and fantastic live music just as in the Lion King movie and CD. However, we were totally dismayed to find out 99% of the music were African folk tunes which sounded like chanting mingled with shouting in a way without much pleasant melodies except for the first and the last songs in the show that sounded familiar to our ears, so to speak. As far as the stage sceneries, there was nothing astounding or anything spectacular to see. In many scenes, there were just blank stage, no effort was put into force on the stage sceneries whatsoever. In general, this is a mediocre Broadway show at best which does not deserve its famous reputation in my most humble opinion.

DECEPTION

I watched it on november,21st.Great expectations! Dancers were terrible. Musicians=play back? Scar was a joke. I really appreciated the kids and Mufasa. It was good,but too much money for only an acceptable entertainment.
