I absolutely LOVE this musical. My husband had never been to a broadway musical before and he loved it. Besides we know the story and the songs. I had goosebumps since the beginning.

People rave about this show for a reason...it's unbelievable. Be sure when you go that you try for aisle seats in either the orchestra or balcony as a great deal of the show takes place in these areas. Love the music and dance. Everything is wonderful. Souvenirs were actually not too unreasonable either.

Amazing show! I confess that I cried a little bit at the beginning of the show as it felt like a trip to my childhood! Very nice, beautiful and funny. A must watch.

Visited on a Tuesday night. Myself and my partner loved the whole show. We had seats in a "box" which turned out not to be a box it's more a ledge. They were great viewing seats though and I'd recommend them as you get a fantastic view. The member of staff on the door was very friendly too and chatted... More

Everything is wonderful in the show. Saw it twice: NY and Toronto. Enjoyed the music, acting, staging and the costumes. I hope it plays forever.

This was an amazing show . Do get good seats , we were the 10th row or so from front . Very front seats are not good as you are not going to be seeing the stage properly . Go early , as the entrance is grand , also booster seats are all taken , so remember to take them... More

I saw Lion King years ago. This is an updated version with more bells and whistles and humorous touches. A classic must. A way to spend a memorable day with a special grandkid.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
