Hakuna Matata

I don't actually think I have done any sort of  'reviews' on this blog before. I've literally just got back home from seeing 'The Lion King Musical' in London and while it's still fabulously fresh in my mind I thought it 100% deserved to be talked about. 

Okay so firstly I am a huge lover of musicals, I don't go to absolutely loads but when I do I could easily sit through them all over again. There's just something about them that excites me. 
To be completely honest I had only seen The Lion King once as a movie back when I was about 5 so I had sort of forgotten what the story was about. But while sat watching it, the story line had all come back to me and I remembered everything. 
The thing that stood out most to me was the stage work, props and costumes. Everything was so perfect and it was amazing how everything had been put together. People dressed up in animal costumes, people on stilts in costumes (being giraffes) it was just all so brilliantly done. 
The cast was so talented and told the story so well and after a while you forget that there's people on stage and you get so stuck in the story and think that there is actually a bunch of wild animals on stage. 
I also love how they added their own lines and references to things that were current and well known these days. Like they actually added in and sang a little bit of  'let it go' - frozen or they talked about how one of their stage curtains looked like it was a shower curtain from Ikea, I thought that was hilarious. Obviously I won't ruin it too much for those who haven't seen it yet, but if you haven't it's something that I can say is definitely worth a watch. I'm sure I'll be going back to book some more tickets to see it again at some point. 
I think I'm going to annoy people now by singing the sound track for the next month!

Have you seen the lion king? What are your favourite musicals?


  1. This show sounds great, I'm not the biggest fan of musicals but when it comes to the Lion King or Disney related things, obviously that's a different ball game altogether.


  2. This is for sure the best musical I have ever seen! I love the film, but like you said the costumes/props/staging was so amazing! I've seen it twice now and would definitely go again x


    1. It's amazing isn't it? I really want to go again! X

  3. I've seen the Lion King :) It's a great show. Have you seen Matilda? I highly recommend that one :)
