What is the Lion King about?
When the young lion prince Simba is born, his evil uncle Scar is pushed back in the line for the throne. Scar plans to kill both Simba and his father, King Mufasa, so he can take over the throne and become king. Simba survives, but thinks he's the cause of his father's death and decides to flee the kingdom.
Simba finds himself starting a new life accompanied by two very improbable friends Timon and Pumba. But the past will come back to haunt him and he will find himself having to face a fearsome enemy in order to fulfill his destiny and take his rightful place as the mighty king!

Absolutely loved this show, esp the costumes they were fantastic!! I've booked my parents tickets to see it too I think people off all ages would enjoy this one.
This is the second time i have seen this show was looking forward to seeing it on Broadway,a great performance but was not as good as London. I think the staging was different.
This was a fantastic show spoilt by the few individuals that for some reason find it impossible to sit and watch a show without chatting all the way through it???/ WHY?...also staff tried very hard to stop idiots who refuse to stop taking pictures and filming the performance..why when they catch them dont they throw them out?..One woman was told 3 times to stop filming every time staff walked away she just continued.
All this is very distracting for people who want to enjoy the show.
