This was my very first broadway show and I loved it. I cried actually. The opening was OMG! All the way through the show I was amazed. From the vocals to the choreography to the performance and scenes, im glad I had a chance to see this! The Lion King is my favorite cartoon movie, ever!

5.0 star rating from Jacksonville, Florida


I attended opening night at the Moran. I must say WOW, extremely well put together in every aspect . From a technical standpoint and the costumes are amazing. Here’s to hoping that it’s not another 10 years until the show returns

5.0 star rating Debbie from Southern Illinois


I saw The Lion King at the Fox in St. Louis and was blown away. I have to admit that when I first saw footage way back in the 90’s of some of the animals and costumes, I just didn’t get it. I am so glad I came around and decided to give it a chance with an open mind. My oldest grandaughter decided not to see the show with us because of some issues she has with people in costume. I would love to bring her to Kansas City for a chance to experience the wonder of it. Breathtaking and awe inspiring!! I can’t recommend it highly enough!!
