If you have little or older kids, you have to see this show on Broadway. If you only have time for one show, go to the Lion King. It is a fantastic show. Get there at the starting time. If you go there early there is a huge line to get in.

I loved the lion king it was worth the money the actors are talented and have strong voices. The stage props for the animals was amazing. The show is full on you can't take your eyes off it. You will love it it is packed every night.

Fun for the whole family. The cast were amazing and the costume and design sets well thought out. Although it was a fabulous theatre production, at $200 a ticket it proves to be an expensive afternoon for a family of 4

The Minskoff Theatre is impressive. The show was fantastic. Great costumes, great vocals, great acting. There wasn't an empty seat in the house. Stage props and sound were excellent.

Excellent show and one of my favorites!! It's a bit long, but may have seemed that way since I've seen several times.

We are a family of 4. We believe that coming to New york without seeing a Broadway play, is an incomplete visit. We really enjoy it. It's a little expensive but it worthed. It is a very rich play with excellent performers!

The first time I took my daughter she was 3, she loved the show so much that now she's 7 and she's already seen it 4 times! The costumes are breathtaking! Even though it is long, the hours go by like seconds! Definetly a MUST SEE!

The number one show, it's best to book in advance rather than try for discounted last minute tickets. You know the story and that detracted from the experience for one of our party. Probably the most amazing thing is the costumes - there were gasps from the audience as the giraffes crossed the stage. The hyenas and elephant were also... More

Fantastic - great performance, absolutely loved every minute of the show and it went past so fast. The costumes are brilliant! If you go to NYC can fully recommend this show.

This musical had such beautiful costumes. I wish that I didn't already know the storyline so that it would have been more exciting. The performers were very good as well. We loved the cocktails in the little sippy cups!
