This is a must see! I absoulutely loved it! The singing & dancing was great. The scenary & costumes were colorful and made you feel like you were part of the production. I plan to go again with my entire family. Well worth the ticket price. Simply the best show ever!

The Lion King Broadway Show took our family through a delightful journey. Soon, we found ourselves immersed in the storyline and the musical score was captivating. The costumes, choreography, and lighting were stimulating as well as the colorful backdrops. Explore a wonderful treasure.

I love the Lion King movie and was looking forward to see this. To me the high point is the how visual it is, with beautiful scenarios, costumes, lighting.

What an amazing, extraordinary show! I was mesmerized: The stage sets, customes, the outstanding choreography took my breath away and Sir Elton John's music moved me to tears. An absolute highlight of my recent trip to the Big Apple.

No need to insert course language (f***d up) to impress or intertain people. I brought young children to the show and didn't need that kind of spice
