This show was awesome. And my 16 year old loved it. The show is two hours with a 15 minute intermission. Do not go to the bathroom during intermission. The line was so long. Definitely recommend this show

I wasn't really wanting to see the Lion King, but it was an affordable ticket that fit our schedule. So off we went. The Minskoff Theatre is very nice and has tons of leg room. So that helped right off the bat. And then once...More

Excellent show! Really enjoyed all the performances and performers. I thought the Scar character was especially good! Only negative, drinks were overpriced.

Not a cheap show but it’s worth every penny. Costumes are brilliant, acting is superb and the music will blow you away. Highly recommend, this show is much better than the equivalent in London.

"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.
