I'm not sure why this one gets so many rave reviews. I was in awe of the set design and costumes, but the actual performance was disappointing.
Why? The sounds system couldn't seem to cope when more than one person was singing at a time. The story moved too slowly for me (considering the movie is 90 minutes and the musical is 2.5 hours might have something to do with this). The songs weren't as well arranged as those used in the Disney movie (as this is a Disney production I think it is fair to compare). Some of the songs felt like filler songs and didn't seem to have any feeling behind them. At times I felt like I was at a child's performance rather than a professional musical.
I would recommend it as a good musical for a family with children to go to.Recommended for:Family Travelers

Disney has really gone to town with this musical. I would suggest trying to sit in the stalls by one of the inside aisles then you get the animals coming straight past you. But what a first number! What costumes, what brilliant puppetry. Gosh and Goodness! The Circle Of Life!!
