On Broadway one fan makes his Lion King review raving about the fantastic performances, costumes and set designs and says that even though it is a Disney cartoon, the stage production can be enjoyed by adults. There is nothing childish about this musical.
Even hardened critics from papers such as the New York times feel transported by the musical extravagnaza saying, "Suddenly, you're 4 years old again, and you've been taken to the circus for the first time. You can only marvel at the exotic procession of animals before you: the giraffes and the elephants and the hippopotamuses and all those birds in balletic flight."
What about the West End production? The Lion King tickets sell out quickly in London as being one of the most popular shows suitable for all ages. The show will be celebrating it's 12th year anniversary this October.

PETER HEPPLE of THE STAGE says, "This stage version of the Disney animated film is a spectacular delight."
Ten years on at it's 10 anniversary the critics still had pletny to praise about the show with the Stage commenting, "There is enough jaw-dropping theatrical spectacle in The Lion King to tickle even the most hardened theatre critic’s palate. As the procession of … read moreanimals makes its way down the aisle at the beginning or the cast controls a flight of coloured birds across the auditorium after the interval, you really are transported thousands of miles away from the Strand on a drizzly London night to the primary colours and vegetation of the Africa Savannah...”
