What a fantastic show! The costumes were incredible the way they can turn a person into an animal and you hardly notice. Stage movements, singing, props, traditional african aspects...loved it all! My one and only negative: the new songs. There is much to be said in that you can tell they are just for costume changes. The hyenas do not need a 5 minute song about how theyre about to eat simba. Weve seen the movie, we know the lines off by heart, and it threw me off, personally, to hear something new.

Visually stunning but could not understand lyrics to most songs or dialogue.

Fantastic. The lighting , dancing, costumes, humor, surprises. Everything. Peoria vacancy be proud to get this here . Too bad people wont all go out to see the wonderful entertainment in this town

4.0 star rating Bob from Fort Myers, Florida


Great show accented by terrific costumes, performances, puppets, and effects. Audio was bad. Sounded like it was coming from a single speaker in front of the stage. Could not understand lyrics of songs. Plenty loud, just garbled.

Thank you for doing this play

This is one my all time favorite broadway shows. I've seen it four times over the past decade in London, New York and Atlanta and this being the second time in Atlanta. If the four this was the worst! The dancers were out of sync at times, the singers were mediocre with no powerful performances or voices and the one of the hyenas showed through her own voice like sitting at a bar rather than getting into the character and voice of the animal. It's almost like they picked up a bunch of amateurs to play the roles. The sets while better than past performances were left disappointing by a woeful lack of experienced artful actors who literally pranced around with them because it was their "job". In all if you've never seen this show I would say go for it and enjoy it like most of the crowd. However if you've seen this show before or have high standards from your broadway performances then stay away or it may run your love for this beautiful masterpiece which seems to have run its time.

I have seen musical productions in New York and Baltimore. I can only say that as a musical, this wasn't well executed. Garbuled words, limited range vocals, with the exception of the witch doctor, and poor acting , child actor especially. Felt like I was watching production with all the understudies. Not impressed at all. Stage too crowded and dancing erratic and very little synchronization when it was called for. Some comic relief toward end, otherwise a boring event.
