We came here to watch the Lion King. It was amazing. The theater is smaller than you would think, so any seat in the orchestra is perfect. We sat in Row T seats 110 and 109 and the view was perfect

Fantastic production of The Lion King. Exactly as a Broadway show should be done. Emotive and powerful vocals with a great orchestra.

My wife and visited New York and had the opportunity to see the Lion King at the Minskoff Theatre. The show was amazing and the theatre is small enough to see everything but large enough to not feel closed in. The acustics were great and the actors were excellent. Love this theatre and will return.

If you're in NYC you have to go to Broadway and this was an amazing night. The Lion King was spectacular and exactly what you would expect of a Broadway show. The toilet lines (for the ladies) were too long but thats the only bad thing that came of this night - I'm sure any show you see here would... More

The Minskoff Theatre is a lovely theatre that has been home to Disney's Broadway production of the Lion King. In Summer 2014, our family enjoyed front-row Mez seating for show and we had a very good experience. The visibility from our seating was excellent and the show was superb.

I have always loved the Lion King and wanted to see the Lion King on Broadway on previous visits but never had the chance. The show was absolutely fantastic and could not recommend it any more if I tried. My favourite performance I have ever seen and the theatre itself was amazing.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
