A mind-blowing visual treat, The Lion King is a theatre adaptation of Disney's much-adored film. The show transports audiences to a dazzling world that explodes with amazing colours, stunning effects and captivating music. At its heart is the powerful and moving story of Simba - the epic adventure of his journey from wide-eyed cub to his eventual role as King of the Pride lands.
The Lion King musical songs feature the irresistible music of Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, with additional tracks by Lebo M, Mark Mancina, Julie Taymor and Hans Zimmer. Hit songs include Circle of Life, Can You Feel the Love Tonight, and I Just Can't Wait to Be King. The award-winning Lion King costumes, designed by Julie Taymor, add the perfect visual accompaniment to the beloved stage show.
The book by Roger Allers and Irene Mecchi is brought to life on stage by the talented Lion King cast, which features Nick Afoa in his West End debut as Simba, George Asprey (Chicago, The Sound of Music) as Scar, Shaun Escoffery (The Who’s Tommy, Smokey Joe’s Café) as Mufasa, and Brown Lindiwe Mkhize as Rafiki.
Disney's multi-award winning The Lion King musical is an experience you'll never forget, set against the majesty of the Serengeti Plains and to evocative African rhythms.
Disney’s hit animated movie was released in 1994, with the musical stage adaptation opening on Broadway in 1997. The West End show debuted in the Lyceum Theatre in 1999 and Lion King reviews continue to praise this mesmerising production, calling it ‘as fresh and soul-stirring as ever’ (The Telegraph) and ‘a feast for the eyes’ (The Guardian).
The performance lasts approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes including an interval so there’s plenty of time to grab a snack and stretch your legs. For the ultimate treat, why not make an evening of it with one of our fabulous West End restaurant offers?
