My husband surprised my daughter and I with tickets to see the show and it was overwhelmingly amazing. It is such a great experience to see this show and I would go again & again because of how much we enjoyed it.

Booked for me and the wife, she talked me into going as I've never been to a show. It was brilliant, such a good show and well worth a visit. I would recommend an Isle seat.

Couldn't have asked for a better show. The performances were epic and the costumes and set design were just incredible. Only SLIGHT criticism is I felt like the guy who played "adult Simba" over-acted a little bit. Sometimes it was tough to stay engaged with...More

Great show! Real fun! Drinks are overpriced. And make sure you do not sit close to an entrance or AC vent as you will freeze!

"Fancy" but kid-friendly restaurant in Cincinnati (14 Replies)
Hi! We are taking our kids (ages 7&8) to the Lion King at the Aronoff. We want to make a big event of it, so are looking for a "fancy" restaurant that is also kid friendly (at least as far as the food goes!). Any suggestions? Thank you!

I've tried to come up with something "fancy" yet appropriate for the age bracket. So many of the downtown venues are either way too formal for the age or too adult or too business in their orientation for kids. Nicholson's Tavern and Pub came first to mind since its right across the street from the Aronoff. Moerlein Lager House has become a popular venue that isn't too formal but if the Reds are playing that day it would be a nightmare. Montgomery Inn at the Boathouse isn't too formal and...More

Broadway show. (20 Replies)
We have seen a few of the shows on Broadway in Australia. Beautiful, Lion King, Aladdin, Kinky Boots (we loved). Can anyone recommend a show for a 76 year old ‘hipp’ lady and my 46;year old daughter. We will be in NYC late September early October. My husband and I saw Mama Mia on Broadway last time we were there, loved it. Would love some recommendations.

A bit of advice, please. (6 Replies)
My husband and I have decided to bring our two daughters (4 and 7) to NYC over the 4th of July. We'd like to see a show, but I guess our only options are Tarzan or Lion King (we've seen Beauty and the Beast). Tarzan isn't getting the best word and believe it or not, I'm having trouble finding tickets. I know Lion King is supposed to be fantastic, but my husband just can't get excited about it because we have seen the movie so many times. There are other shows that I'm sure the older one would...More

Thanks so much NYCgirl. I think I will definitely have to think outside of the box. I like the Drumstruck idea and the Victory theater.
