I was treated to the play by a friend, and I was blown away, it was fanastic. The production was top notch. I only wish I can afford to take my three granddaughters, It would be a great experience for them.

5.0 star rating Tina from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania


Saw this production at the Benedum in Pittsburgh, Pa....AMAZING SHOW!!! My daughter has been a fan of LK since the original movie was released when she was 2 yrs old (she's now 26) and we couldn't wait to see this...the entire cast is phenomenal!!! The actress that was Rifiki did a fantastic job and young Simba and Nala were amazing actors for being so young. Would have no problem going to see it again and again.

5.0 star rating Michele Crowley from Boston, Massachusetts


Outstanding show, extremely talented cast, amazing sets and costumes! Goose bump producing show. Loved every minute of it! Never a down, slow moment in this show. My daughters and granddaughters loved it too, regretted not bringing my grandson. Highly recommend!

5.0 star rating Isabel from North Charleston, South Carolina


To say that the performance was amazing, impressive and one of the best shows I have seen is almost an understatement. Truly something you should not miss. I doubt, in a sold out opening night, it would be difficult... if not impossible to find anyone that disagrees,

1.0 star rating Doug Bass from Rochester, New York


Terrible acting. Hollow and emotionless, the actors merely speak their lines but clearly have no idea what the words woodenly coming out of their faces mean. For too many “dramatic“ moments, they overeagerly rush their lines because they’re clearly not listening to their counterparts on stage. And almost universally, they emphasize the wrong word in each line, betraying their ignorance of what the sentence is meant to communicate and destroying the intended impact. For too many “comedic” moments, they drag on uncomfortably long, creating frustration instead of humor. It’s hard to imagine anyone actually laughing during this show without relying on familiarity with the parallel funny scenes (actually performed skillfully) in the movie. The Director made no effort to emotionally connect with the audience, didn’t seem to understand the core story, & failed to cast people who can skillfully sing at a level that justifies the ticket prices. The entire experience was very disappointing.

5.0 star rating Lauretta from Cincinnati, Ohio


I had wanted to see this stage play for years. I finally saw the show last night and I was blown away! Amazing costumes and choreography! Very nice.

5.0 star rating Nicky G from Milwaukee, Wisconsin


Just brilliant. There are several show stopping songs. I mean heartfelt and tear jerking. A couple of them were additions vs. the Disney film. The performance Will have you wanting to move to the music in your seat and sing along (which of course you cannot so as not to annoy others who are feeling the same way, LOL). Nonetheless my family and I loved every moment. If you’ve seen it before, see it again. You’ll love it as much and more. But you all knew this already. 🙂
