Came to the show with a large group of teenagers. At first the boys of the group were pretty dissapointed we weren't going to a sporting event but by intermission they couldn't stop talking about how much they were enjoying it. It was actually one of their highlights when telling their parents about the trip. The show was great and... More

The Lion King is spectacular. Im sure this has been said time and time again but it is absolutely true. The colors, music, atmosphere all create an incredible evening. Looking at it through the eyes of a child is even more amazing!

My friends and I went last night. I have wanted to see this show for at least 10 years and I finally saw it. The beginning score sent shivers up my spine. An absolute must see, the performance, the set, the music, a great time!

What can I say that has not already been said? This show will leaving you wanting more. The talent is phenomenal, the set design is breathtaking. I always get an aisle seat for the little extra surprise. I will continue to be a supporter of such great talent.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
