    I have been trying to see the Lion King in the US for years but booing months in advance just didn't work for me. I was delighted to be spending 3 days in London and realizing I could book for the next night! It lived up to my high expectations. Wonderful costuming and singing. My favorite musical now! I have been humming LK songs since I saw the show.

    19 November 2017

    A very good show. Took daughter for her birthday - first time for daughter but second for us. Pleased to see how show has kept up to date. Avoided queues by picking up tickets early (long queue at box office before show started). Used facility to book interval drinks to be brought to our seats and worked very well
