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

The theatre itself is really nice, comfy seats and good views of the stage plus nice facilities. Saw the Lion king which we had such high expectations for but it didn't live up to them! The sets and costumes were amazing but I felt some of the songs were a big let down and just overall we left feeling very... More

We saw the Lion King at this Theater and I was expecting the venue to be much larger due to the hype surrounding the Lion King. We were in the last row (very top) but had a pretty good view of the stage and performance. The acoustics were awesome as was the decor leading to the interior of the theater... More

We recently went to see The Lion King in the Minskoff Theatre and the whole experience was excellent. Entry and seating was easy and quick and I had no problems with seating staff, who I found to be polite, friendly and helpful in showing us to our seats. We sat in the Orchestra, row U seats 112 and 113 and... More

We were at the Minskoff to see Lion King, which was amazing, but the theater itself was also great. Comfortable seats, lovely decor and friendly staff. They had cushions for small children to sit on. A wonderful experience.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
