Advantages: Wonderful performances; Exquisite costume and set design; A truly great show.
Disadvantages: A little expensive depending on seating.
Having seen this wonderful show there is only one way to describe it - Breathtakingly brilliant.
The show is pretty much similar to the disney film, so anyone who has seen that will know the story, but the manner in which it is told is simply outstanding.
Firstly, the performances where brilliant! You could not take your eyes off the actors as they bounced around the stage with a magical energy. The children playing young Simba and Nala were brilliant and their singing beautiful. The rest of the cast were equally as impressive, most notabley Scar, who gave a frighteningly memorable performance.
The set was also exquisite - the stampede was one of my favourite parts of the whole show, and was quite ingeneous. Pride Rock, the waterfall and the jungle were all so impressive, you never knew where to look next.
However, in my opinion, the most impressive aspect of this production are the costumes. From the very first moment you are blown away by the brilliance and exquisite nature of the garments and outfits the actors wear. My favourite part of the whole show was when the team dressed as an elephant walked down the isle between the seats - it is the most impressive thing you will see in the theatre. Scar's costume was also excellent and well worth going to see the show for.
This show is funny, touching, scary and so incredibley entertaining that I encourage anyone with the means to do so, to run out and see it immediately! Without a doubt the finest production I have ever had the pleasure of seeing.
Summary: Phenominal show that should be see by all.
