Was looking forward to seeing this and the theatre itself is actually the best in Broadway with huge seats and very comfortable. I found the production lacked soul though, maybe because the theatre was so large it seem to lose some intimacy. The production itself is huge and impressive. I also found the type of people attending this show are... More

Booked well in advance, very popular show to see. I wasn't disappointed even though my seats were up the back you could still see and hear very well and that you were witnessing something special. The cast were enthusiastic in their performance and the scenery was reasonable and it did the job well. Merchandise available for sale though you got... More

I have to explain here. If you haven't gone to many shows, or it's your first time, especially bringing the kids and they love The Lion King, then this might still be a spectacular one for you and your family. I had seen the show 5 years ago on a school trip and also thought that it was amazing at... More

This was the most amazing show I've ever seen! The talent and production are out of this world! We took my sister-in-law as a graduation gift. She's always been a huge fan of The Lion King. We all loved the show so much that we bought TONS of souvenirs to remember the occasion. You will not be disappointed if you... More

The Lion King is an outstanding show with lots of different characters and roles! The music is sooooooo good and at some point they sing so well you think they are doing playback! The main audience would be children as it is a child friendly with humour in it. Some might say it is a bit pricey but it is... More

The Lion King is a must-see. We went with kids ages 5 and 7 and were all entertained. The music was wonderful and the costumes / scenery was also. The only bummer was the guy who answered his phone 4 times during the show :(

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.
