Brilliant and well worth watching. Performances by all were superb as you would expect. Not cheap for good seats.

Don't be embarrassed to attend this show without a child! Seriously. The production and the means they use to create the animal characters is the most technically incredible you will ever see. Disney has other shows on Broadway, but this is as good for adults as it would be for children. Unfortunately, I doubt that children will fully comprehend the... More

The scenery, the sets, the voices - everything about the production was first class. From the opening number which brought tears to my eyes, to the ad lib of 'Let it Go' in the second half, to the tears brought to my eyes at the end, I thoroughly enjoyed The Lion King. This show was not on my list of... More

I believe I'm wrong because 90% of people says this is the best show ever in their lives but for me this show wasn't great. If you compare Cirque du Solei or some Las Vegas shows then you decide. Good story but I think they could do better.

This show was the highlight of my 4 day trip to NYC. The seats we had in the mezzanine were great, I could see everything perfectly. The performances were amazing, every character was phenomenal and the props and puppets were beautiful.

The costumes and puppets were amazing. The children in the audience were spellbound, and the adults only slightly less so. What a fabulous evening's entertainment for everyone.

I had seen this before in Dublin but the husband hadn't, so we decided to splash out a bit and treat us to this show - being on a honeymoon we didn't want to go for something too sad like Les Mis or Phantom, nor too cynical like Book of Mormon, although that was tempting too. Lovely show as usual,... More

This show was AMAZING!!! My friend and I sat in the second row of the Mezzanine and the cast were very entertaining and it was easy to hear what was being said or sung. The puppets were INCREDIBLE!!! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND seeing THE LION KING if you are visiting NYC as it is highly entertaining.
