I saw The Lion King for my 30th birthday my sign is the Lion so of course it couldn´t be any other show. It was magnificent and i enjoyed every moment of it. My favorite has alwasy been Phantom and Jesus Christ Superstar but this show has totally taken it´s place way up there. I think it´s so much better than the cartoon - maybe it´s because the show is for all ages. but really thumps up. LOVE

!!!!!!!!!! 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!

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.

Yesterday I took my family to see ‘The Lion King’. It was a truly exhilarating experience. The creativity of the costumes, sets, choreography, and acting absolutely blew us away. All of that exhilaration was immediately dampened at the end of the play when we were held captive for 5 minutes by several actors making a plea for contributions to the Theater’s favorite charity. We lost the ‘buzz’ that cost us almost $700 (6 tickets) to achieve. I have nothing against charity pleas; but do it before the play begins so that it doesn’t interfere with the real reason we attend theater.

This musical was he best thing I have ever seen. I went to New York for a funraiser for school, and got to see it. The cotumes, scenery, sets, and especially the specil effects were awesome! The actors did an excellent job. My main opinion: Perfect!

Ever since I was a little girl, The Lion King was always a favorite. When I heard Broadway made it into a show I was tickled pink. But then I realized it may never come to my town. However three years ago, my dream had come true. And it wasn't quite what I expected. It was phenomenal. The first thing that catches the audience's eyes are the costumes, puppets, set, choreography, and make up. While all of these are beautiful to behold, the best parts in my opinion are the songs and score. All of the singers, dancers, and actors. And of course the ever-lasting story. The music is exotic, energetic,powerful and at times even spiritual. The performances are full of joy, passion, and heart. They all bring to life the characters we know and love. And last but not least the story. The tale of a naieve but energetic child who has everything but is soon shattered. Now he must face his responsability and take his place in the Circle of Life. Get ready for all your emotions to pour out. A must see
