“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

This show was incredible. You just can't go wrong. The music is so great, and it was so neat to see the creativity in the animals costumes! My favorite being the elephant and the giraffe!

“Incredible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

We saw this production on a Thursday night and were blown away by it. The set and costume deign are phenomenal, the actors were great and the choreography was superb.
My only complaint were the people sitting around us, talking to one another and texting on their cell phones - an unwelcome distraction. Perhaps rules of theatre etiquette needs to be reiterated at the beginning of the performance.

“Fantastic The Lion King Musical - Theatre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Fantastic show, we had fabulous seats, but most seats in this theatre are fantastic as the show on occasions is in the eisels of the theatre. Went the the Lion King in Sydney about 7 yrs ago, brought back the amazing fantastic feelings about The Lion King live musical show on stage on Broadway.

“Amazing perfection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

What an amazing time!!

Okay, my parents were suprising me with an evening at the Minskoff Theatre to watch the show, which i was very unaware of.
So when I found out I was very excited. My brother on the other hand (14) was not so happy about it. He thought it was going to be too much for kids and too boring for him.

The show began and as soon as the first scene started my brother was so into it! More than i was I believe.
So that just shows you this is for anyone! It was a great show and I can't wait to go back and see it again.

“Take the kids or just yourself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

This is one show you must see. The production value is incredible. Stunning, really. The music is gorgeous, the vocals spot on, especially the harmonies. The cast is superb, from the young Simba to the nasty Scar. If children bug you, skip the matinee however.
