Two parents and their 13 year old son attended Lion King. We enjoyed the costumes and music, but did have some difficulty making out the words to the songs sitting in the Mezzanine. The music and energy of the production were great, as well as the cast. Overall, highly recommended!

I think everyone knows the film and the story of the Lion King. The show is just tremendous and this has to be one of the most beautiful Art Deco Theatres I have ever seen. They are both stunning!

Fantastic! The family truly enjoyed it! This was a birthday gift for my daughter and the cast was very enjoyable!

Took my seven-year-old (who had previously seen it in Vegas a couple of years ago) - not to be missed even the second time, each city seems to have a slight variation on the show, theatre was great.

We were only in NY for three days, so we had to take back row seats HOWEVER they were still great. Best show I ever seen....costumes, music......talent....it was wonderful...my three sons 17 to 21 also loved it...it's not just for littlies, more for adults. Grab a juice and keep the Lion King heavy plastic cup as a momento. . Next time I would prebook Broadway shows though, as I guess closer would have been even better. The good thing with Lion King is that the animals and characters often come down from the back doors, and through the aisles, so dont despair if only back seats are left, it's till very easy to see etc
