I am not a big fan of musicals so I was not crazy about going to this show but the wife and our friends really wanted to go so I tagged along.

We waited to see this particular show until we felt our grandchildren were old enough to appreciate it. The Lion King is a fantastic Broadway experience. Every minute of it was exciting both visually and musically. I would definitely recommend getting tickets for this awesome performance.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our first Broadway experience with The Lion King. The colorful and fantastic job on the costumes brought the all familiar storyline to life. We had the best time.

I loved The Lion King. The music, color, scenes, and acting are nothing less than amazing. I bought my tickets about 2 hours prior to the matinee performance. Fair price and great seats.

I really enjoyed my visit to see the Lion King. The sets, costumes, and creations are amazing an colourful. The actors and actresses were great, confident, and at times injected humour into the show. The singing and music were wonderful. I really felt drawn into the story. It remains a really pleasant memory. Go see it!

A fantastic show and one that brought back memories of watching the original movie over and over with the kids when they were young. Cast was great - particularly Scar who really nailed it.

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.
