"Outstanding musical"
I have been waiting for a long time to see this show. Finally we managed to visit New York City and saw The Lion King. It was just amazing. Incredible voices, character play, customes, and stage effects. I recommend to see that with warm hart, especially with children.

"Fabolous play"
Actually my wife has been longed for this musical on Broadway. I just accompanied her, but the show was way more better than I expected. The animal customes were so real, the acting and singing of the cast were just an outstanding performance. If you're emotional kind, tears of sorrow and joy will come during the play. It was a remarkable night, well worth the ticket price.

Many people brought children for the play. Their chuckle and laughter gave a special atmosphere to the theater. I found the performance visually captivating with its colorful scenery. The cast performed fantastic with their singing and playing, also they wore stunning customes. I saw many musicals in my life and I have to tell you that The Lion King is from the good ones. I was impressed by the show even with my 48 years.
