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.

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.

I saw the Lion King last night pin Tempe for the 3rd time. There have been some changes to the script and choreography (no aeiral dance in "Can You Feel the Love Tonight"). Some of the songs were abbreviated, and the actors (Mufasa, Nala and Simba) were not as strong in singing and acting. They did not project well and we could not hear them well from our balcony view. Rafiki, Timon, Pumba and Scar were by far, the best - in character - projected well. We had balcony seats which were expensive and I would not recommend them. Not worth the price. We sat directly under the spotlight operator (why do they charge so much for these seats????) I would definitely see the show again despite the above. The music, color, culture, choreography, humor positive energy and pure joy that the show exudes brings people together in loving ways. People left happy and overjoyed. After so many years of darkness, I'm glad that the Lion King is back to lift our spirits.

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.
