This is the most comfortable theatre I have been to. Attentive bathroom staff, escalators, comfortable seats with a decent amount of personal space and leg room. If only all Broadway shows had a theatre like this one!

The musical "The Lion King" was fabulous. The acting, costumes, and singing were top notch. The theater needs a better cue system for waiting for the doors to open. The line stretched around the block and made traffic on the sidewalk difficult. It was also...More

This is the 'house' of the "Lion King" musical. The cushion of the chairs were comfortable. The leg room was spacious too. The acoustic of the theater was good. The overall seating layout was well planned, so you won't be blocked by the people in...More

Experiencing the Lion King with my two granddaughters in this theatre was very special. Besides the production, which defies superlatives, the theatre itself is perfectly thought out for the comfort of all attendees. I can rarely sit through a whole production these days without my...More

If I remember correctly, they open the doors to the theater approximately one hour before the show starts. That one hour window allows you to browse the merchandise, order snacks and drinks, and get to your seat in plenty of... More

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza in Times Square. It was only about a five minute walk to the theater and the hotel was great.

I bought my ticket from the counter at the theatre for a full price because they didn't have any discounts on offer. And since the house is fully packed on most occasions, discounts are generally unavailable. I hope this... More
