This is a very nice show, very mainstream and definitely very Disney!! Nice songs, nice costumes, and pretty good acting. If it's your first Broadway show or if you are taking children than by all means this will do. In my opinion though there are...More

Well recommended my partner and son were a little apprehensive going to the theatre as they thought it would be boring. Well it’s far from it!! Amazing show would highly recommend for an evening out.

This was our first broadway show and really was fantastic. Great costumes, choreography and music. We really were impressed. Our only thing was we had seats right down front, I would sit back 5 or 6 rows or even get seats in the mezzanine just...More

This was such a great show and very entertaining for all ages. Had great seats near the 8th row and the characters/actors throughout the show walk pass the aisles. My advice is eat before or after; because the drinks/snacks are truly expensive and overpriced.

This show was Amazing. The choreography the props were all A1. We opted for the Orchestra Seats and were so happy we did. If visiting NYC this should be on your list of things to do.

"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.

I would look into Come From Away or Waitress.
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.
