My daughter had previously seen this show in London and told me how fabulous it was, especially the costumes and sets. She did not disappoint. The opening number will blow your mind! The animal costumes are unbelievable. The set changes are clever, the sets themselves are simple yet extremely creative. The music was fantastic, and the cast was terrific. It... More

The set and costumes of this show alone are worth the tickets. We sat in Row Y in the two end seats in the Orchestra Section and were able to see the entire set very well.

The Lion King was a great play for all ages. My 17 year old chose the Lion King as the play she wanted to see and I was so glad that she did. What an excellent play! I was amazed at how they were able to portray the characters from the movie on stage. The costumes were fantastic. All ages... More

The most unique aspect of this musical is the visual: costumes, sets, etc. The songs are great and the story line is great also, but the way they portray the animals and do the scenes from the movie are incredible.

The show is good but it's too expensive. I would rather pay only 40-50$ per ticket. They charge almost twice of that. Better spend time in watching 2-3 good movies at amc

My family has seen this play many times but this was our first on Broadway. It is so amazing all the work that goes into the acting and the costumes. There is not a bad seat in the theater. The actors come down the middle aisle and some are up in the upper level. We had an amazing time.

Unbelievable! 3 time seeing the show (2nd on Broadway). The tickets can be expensive but the back 4/5 rows on the top deck over cheapest seats but still pricey at £100+ per ticket.

The show was awsome, since the beginning with the line organization, the snacks and the beverages, the seat's confort. But the show itself, the actors, the songs, the scenarios, the clothes, it was all brilliant! It worths every penny you invest on, there's no words to describe thow great it is.

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.
