The theatre is right on times square as expected and it was quite easy to enter and find our seats because its well organized with guides. It began almost 10 min after 2000 and everyone kept quiet except for the clapping after each great act, amazing actors and such an amazing production, well worth every penny of my tickets. You...

Beautiful theater in NYC. The seats are comfortable and we truly enjoyed the show, The Lion King, in this theater. I have attended four other shows in NYC, but none at this particular theater. Very comfortable and all seats give you a wonderful view. Easy to find in NYC.

The stage design and customs were magnificent. Suitable for children above 9-10, but adults will enjoy it as well. Don`t sit too close. Stood up to all expectations.

We saw The Lion King at this theater. We sat very close to the front, way off to the side. Not ideal seats, but we were still able to see all the action. Word of warning to the ladies: the women's rest room is woefully inadequate to handle the intermission rush. There were quite a number of us who were... More

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.
