The award-winning stage adaptation of the 1994 Disney film, 'The Lion King' tells the story of a young lion prince, Simba. He idolizes his father, the king Mufasa, while at the same time youthfully shirks the responsibility his position in life requires. When an unthinkable tragedy orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes Mufasa’s life, Simba must fulfill his destiny to be king. 'The Lion King' is the winner of 6 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
See it if You want to see a typical Broadway show and enjoyed the Disney movie
Don't see it if You're expecting something different from the movie. It is very much similar and it is clear how much it is meant for tourists.
See it if You love Disney, spectacular opening numbers, lavish costumes and sets, romance, larger than life characters, and a great score.
Don't see it if You want to watch one of the greatest opening numbers ever and then suffer through the rest of the show until that song comes around again.
See it if You want to see some of the most exquisite costumes and visuals on Broadway.
Don't see it if You don't like going to see shows with many children in the audience. You have high expectations for the music
See it if The commercials aren't enough. Costumes and staging are still unlike anything else on Broadway.
Don't see it if You can find enough clips online. Circle of Life is amazing and worth the price of entry, but the rest does not live up to the kids movie.
See it if You loved the movie it's brilliantly comes to life before you and in such a clever and unique way that is seem less and entertaining
Don't see it if You think it's still in good shape because it's not, last time I saw this It was weak and sad
See it if you have kids, if you are a Disney nerd, or if you like the movie. It is a beautiful 3D human rendition of a 2D animal world.
Don't see it if you don't like kids' movies. It's entertaining, but not very deep or thought-provoking. It doesn't keep you on the edge of your seat.
See it if you're not a Broadway aficionado and cool costumes are enough to do it for you.
Don't see it if you're a Broadway aficionado and aren't still enchanted by cool costumes. If you're looking for something with real meat.
See it if You love the movie or have kids. Great show just not particularly moving. For thespians you should see it at least once.
Don't see it if Some lyrics are difficult to comprehend (diction). You want a more in time bway show/ something not touristy
