VISUALLY EXCELLENT.....ACOUSTICALLY DISAPPOINTING
Great show accented by terrific costumes, performances, puppets, and effects. Audio was bad. Sounded like it was coming from a single speaker in front of the stage. Could not understand lyrics of songs. Plenty loud, just garbled.

MEDIOCRE PERFORMANCE IF YOU'VE SEEN PAST PERFORMANCES
This is one my all time favorite broadway shows. I've seen it four times over the past decade in London, New York and Atlanta and this being the second time in Atlanta. If the four this was the worst! The dancers were out of sync at times, the singers were mediocre with no powerful performances or voices and the one of the hyenas showed through her own voice like sitting at a bar rather than getting into the character and voice of the animal. It's almost like they picked up a bunch of amateurs to play the roles. The sets while better than past performances were left disappointing by a woeful lack of experienced artful actors who literally pranced around with them because it was their "job". In all if you've never seen this show I would say go for it and enjoy it like most of the crowd. However if you've seen this show before or have high standards from your broadway performances then stay away or it may run your love for this beautiful masterpiece which seems to have run its time.

LION KING HAD NO ROAR.
I have seen musical productions in New York and Baltimore. I can only say that as a musical, this wasn't well executed. Garbuled words, limited range vocals, with the exception of the witch doctor, and poor acting , child actor especially. Felt like I was watching production with all the understudies. Not impressed at all. Stage too crowded and dancing erratic and very little synchronization when it was called for. Some comic relief toward end, otherwise a boring event.

LACKLUSTER LION KING
We attended one of the final shows in Milwaukee on March 1. We came away disappointed. We have seen Broadway productions of this show three times and this one did not measure up. The visuals remain as stunning as always. Mukelisiwe Goba as Rafiki was fabulous. Beyond that the characters (we assume many understudies as an additional cast list was included) lacked commitment and offered lackluster performances. Seemed like they were going through the motions and failed to reach across the orchestra pit more often than not.

OK FOR ANYONE UNDER 10
I know it's a minority opinion, but I found this very boring. The costumes were not what I would expect from a Disney production. I think it would be a great show for kids, but just not my cup of tea.
