You don't have to be a professional to appreciate the talent of this cast. From the fabulous vocals to the incredible scenery, this is magic before your eyes. The theatre is large, and there's not a bad seat in the house. You're constantly thinking, "How did they do that?!" throughout the musical. A pleasure from start to finish, this is... More

Not sure I can add anything extra than the thousands of existing reviews but really wanted to echo how amazing the show was. Costumes and sets were fantastic and so elaborate. The cast never missed a beat and looked like they were having so much fun (which must be hard, day after day!!) only bugbear I have was cost of... More

I had a dream to see a show on Broadway and my partner wanted to see Lion King. This would not of been my first choice but the show was well worth seeing. The costumes we're awesome and the singing was amazing. I thought the second half was better than the first but really enjoyed the show. A great time... More

I went expecting a stage version of the Disney movie, but this show is so much better. The music is amazing live, and the animals are brought to life in clever, creative, and beautiful ways. The atmosphere is the theatre is enchanting.

The show was awesome. The costumes are out of this world and the singing and performance was great. Really liked how they tried to connect with the audience.

….although our 11 year old granddaughter really enjoyed the show; so did my wife and I and our son and his wife. Glad we went. The show is about – wait…. you have to see it for yourself. But it is very active, colorful, with great music and some comedy. Very entertaining. Some action off-stage which gets you moving in... More

great way to spend 2 hours, watching a good show. At one point I felt it went for too long and I think kids would enjoy this more than adults but still a good show. great outfits and make up staff were friendly

This show delivers visually from the very beginning! We were in awe of the detail in the animals, the costumes and the characters themselves. All of the stars delivered amazing vocals in addition to flawless dialogue. Everything in the show was over the top and we loved it! We had a little boy sitting behind us no more than about... More

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.
