The theatre staff are so friendly and helpful. Booster seats for the kids to see the show! We also enjoyed the costume from the show stating it’s Tony awarded winning designs. Thanks for making it a memorable time.

We took our grand kids to see the play. They had a great time. Show was great and the theatre couldn't have been better.

This is a great one for kids and teenagers -- but also adults. The theater is cavernous, airy and light filled...and there is ample leg room

Saw The Lion King here. The theater is very nice. It was clean and the staff was very nice. Looked at our tickets and told us where to find our seats. A little chilly in the theater so wear a sweatshirt.

As a great lover of theatre, and a regular attendee of my home equivalent, the West End, I had very high expectations. Now don’t get me wrong, the show was incredible, dancers and singers! The african drums made it! But the audience, so disgustingly disrespectful,...More

The seats in this theatre actually have leg room! That is a great point, if you have been in other theatres on Broadway where your knees are in the neck of the person in front of you. Plus the seats seem to be a little...More

We saw the Lion King here. Great theater with lots of good seating. Leg room is definitely an issue, as the space between aisles is very small. Other than that, this is an awesome theater and is definitely worth seeing a show at. (6/17/2015)

The lion king is superb and well worth a visit. I've seen it in Vegas and London too and this was the best. Plenty of leg room in the seats which is always an issue for me! Only negative was people behind with young children...More

There are three parking lots within a block of the theater. I cannot enter websites into the answer, but if you do a search on "Parking lots near Minskoff Theater" you will see them with addresses, etc.

You will be asked to open your bag as you enter the theater. This is pro forma, and takes a fraction of a second unless you are carrying contraband.

Minskoff Theatre on New Years Eve 2011 (3 Replies)
Hi, I just purchased tickets for a 2 p.m. show at Minskoff Theatre on Dec 31st and have just discovered that it is right near Times Square. Am I going to have any trouble accessing the theatre with News Years Eve crowds? I've read that you can't get anywhere near Times Square!

You will indeed be able to access the theater by entering the area from the 8th avenue side and the same route when you exit...It will be crowded but very passable and you will be thanking your lucky stars that you decided not to do what those fools are doing--- when you exit the theater they still will be out in their pens for another 7 hours or so.

*** What if anything do I need to do or know?? *** You just need to know that Mayor Bloomberg is becoming a maniacal ruler who is plotting to do away with term limits (but only when it comes to him) and is hell bent on closing all traffic in Manhattan ..... that's all.
