If you have not seen The Lion King, it is worth the ticket price. The costumes are remarkable. The show includes some music of Elton John from the movie along with some original pieces by Hans Zimmer. Since this is a musical of a Disney annimated film, know there will be children in the audience. There is more crowd noise... More

This is a very spectacular show, what you expect from a Broadway musical. Specially if you travel with the family. Best customs ever.

Again, saw when opened in 1990's. Amazed at how they transformed the cartoon movie to an eclectic costumed staged production. Wonderful to see with family and great for kids. They will love the show and especially the costumes.

Had set out heart on seeing this show during our week long NY visit and I'm so glad we did. Yes it was expensive but SO worth it. Following advice on here we went directly to the box office about an hour before the show. Sadly there were no $99 seats left for that night. However we were offered excellent... More

This show satisfies the Disney lover, the theatre enthusiast (such as myself), and those who don't particularly enjoy Disney or theatre. I'm a bit of a musical theatre snob and purist, so I am ambivalent about Broadway being "Disneyfied." However, the Lion King is an exception. It contains beautiful music that will give you chills, amazing costumes and dancing, interesting... More

Don't know enough adjectives to describe my feelings. From costumes and stage decor to sound and actors; simply an outstanding show. Great overall production. I got to be honest I'm not a big fan of Broadway shows; I was yawning and searching for a place to eat during my Phantom of the Opera visit. So when I was just considering... More

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.
