The performance was very good, no question. Nice production. The theater, Lyceum Theater, sadly is not well maintained in terms of cleanliness and ventilation. With so many in attendance, it is very warm and the odors of so many people together without ventilation is unbearable!

Yesterday was the 3rd and 2nd time respectively that we've seen the lion king It always managed to amaze and wonder There were few bits that either we forgot or have evolved into the show over the years For those that want a really exciting evening and enjoy a show where the music is still so integral to the show and the orchestra is live and extremely tight I would recommend this whole heartedly they were just as impressive as those on stage The youngest simba and nala were adorable and injected their own enigmatic personalities into it and I would love to see them play these characters again Great show Hope to see it again and again in the coming years !!!!
