A simply amazing show with all the songs we know and love. Great acting, costumes, music and stage effects, all performed brilliantly with a few laughs too. No wonder it was the top show in New York!!

The theatre is wonderful. Newer. Very comfortable seats. Plenty of leg room. The show is great. The opening scene alone is wonderful. Well worth the price of admission. No pictures or filming aloud.

Out of the world experience. Great costumes. If you have seen the movie and then come for the show, its a great experience.

This was the first of a Disney weekend. The use of the entire theater was unique. I wondered how one turns a 90 minute movie to a 2 and half hour show. The uniqueness of Mustafa's and Scar's falling to their deaths was perfect. I...More

I always love the plot of Lion King. It never seems to die out. Yet, I didn't get anything new out of the Broadway version. The animals, while brilliantly created for the stage, wowed as always, but I can see those in other productions. Glad...More

We are not aware of any website to buy tickets, our tickets were bought by the locals for us in advance and we are not aware of the details.
