We went to this theater to see the Lion King. It was amazing, just as wonderful as everyone always claims it to be. The theater was beautiful, and just the right size for this production. We sat in the 4th row in the aisle, the perfect seat for this show. The theater needs more women's restrooms. My only complaint. We... More

The Minskoff Theater is a perfect venue to watch and feel the heart pounding production Lion King. Thanks to TripAdvisor I had researched the best seats in the house and found it to be the 4th row, E and seat 116. My friends told me to book very early and I did, 6 months in advance and even then I... More

Thought the place was organized, small/medium size theater. Overall, any seat will allow you to appreciate the show. I saw on the Mezannine, 4th row(D), seat 136. They sell snack and alcohol. I was looking for something more on the heavy food side as it is 3 hrs long. In forming the queues they where organized and informative. Bar tenders... More

The Minskoff theater is very nice with comfortable seats and not a bad seat in the house. I think the only complaint would be the lack of restrooms - clearly a lot patrons where turn away during the intermission. If you need a lot of leg room, the seats near the door in the orchestra sections have a little more... More

My husband, kids and I watched the Lion King at this theatre. It is in Times Square, very convenient location. The ushers were very helpful in helping the line move quickly and guiding us to our seats. We sat near the restrooms and concession stand. We thoroughly enjoyed it. They make a wonderful sangria!

A beautiful theatre. Does not appear to be a bad seat in the house. We sat 8th row center orchestra and the seats were fabulous (very comfortable too). The acoustics were excellent. Only complaint we heard was there are not enough bathrooms.

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

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.
