“visual masterpiece”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I loved the look of this musical, but the story is based on a cartoon, so it was a little juvenile. Still, it was well worth the money and I'm glad I saw it.

“Blew expectations out of the jungle”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

My kids must have watched this movie hundreds of times while growing up. Had heard great reviews otherwise would have seen a different show but our last night in Manhattan we chose this play. My 28 y/o son reluctantly agreed to pass up a Rangers game for the show and I was afraid he'd be bored. A few times during the show, I glanced at him and he was mesmerized by the performance. I knew we'd scored more than a hat trick and was elated that this was our choice for our final outing in New York What a reward for all of us, I choked a little when I paid $200 for each ticket but we were in the 2nd row from the stage and it was amazing. The ROI exceeded all expectations and a year later we still talk about our experience. I would go again and go again and again. Amazing!

“One of the best shows for young and old alike”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Wonderful show! Amazing costumes, great music; just a joy to see!

For a thrill, get a seat on the isle, the actors use the isles, so an isle seat puts you right in the middle of the action!
