A beautiful performance of a classic, inspirational story. A must-see for all New York visitors. You cannot visit NYC without seeing a Broadway show, and TLK is a hot pick. I suggest you try to get seats as close to the front as you can in order to avoid feeling 'distant' from the show.

Taking a trip to New York, it is a must to take in a show on Broadway, and the Lion King has to be the most popular and famous of all. Deals on the tickets can be had if you are willing to queue on the day, but the seating is limited and you might end up somewhere at the... More

Wonderful musical that the entire family will enjoy. The voices and music were great and it is a classic. Anything Disney does is high caliber.

The coordination of movement between character and costume is mind boggling. Wonderful music, stupendous staging, spectacular costuming and a heart warming and wonderful production that should be seen by all.

If you are looking for a broadway show that is suitable for the entire family, look no further than "The Lion King." Music, story line, and costumes, will not disappoint. I actually found my seat at this theatre to have a bit more leg room than a lot of other theaters I have been to, which made it more comfortable... More

The Lion King is the best show I have seen on Broadway and I have seen quite a few. The customers and scenes are amazing. They stayed true to the movie scenes. They got a standing ovation at the end

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.
