Saw this production on Broadway earlier this month. I have end stage cancer and this was on my bucket list. My daughter treated me to a trip to NYC, and this was the number one thing I wanted to do. I have seen many Broadway shows at other venues over the years, but I can't remember ever enjoying one as much as I enjoyed this. Awesome from start to finish. It's coming to Dallas in June and I'm determined to stay alive to be able to experience it again! I loved it!!!

How fortunate we were to have this immensely talented group of actors, and musicians, and producers bring their creativity to us, in The Lion King. I was fortunate enough to see the production twice...and both times, it was in my opinion: flawless. The actors were passionate about their roles, and it was a sheer pleasure to watch them in this magical production. Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you for including Spokane in your tour! I encourage everyone to see it if possible. We left the performance with beautiful, positive memories!

Everything about the show was great including the acti9, sing6, costumes, music scores and scenic design. If you get a chance, GO SEE IT!!!

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.

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,
