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

Firstly, absolutely fantastic show, everything we hoped it would be and more. However, we say in the orchestra stalls, towards the side. We were next to an exit patrolled by ushers. Whilst I realise there are rules and policies, the enforcing of the no photography...More

I've seen The Lion King before back home in NC but saw it this time with my husband for his first time. It was a great show like always but this review is about the theatre. It is a very spacious theatre with comfortable seats....More

We were here in mid July for a production of the Lion King. We had seats in the V section and despite what we thought, we had a great view! The theatre was huge and there was never a line for the bathroom. The show...More

If you go to New York and do not attend this show in Broadway, then you have not been to NY. This is a must go and you need to book your tickets in advance, probably from the day you book your hotel. This is...More

Presenting the Lion King- one of the best and longest running Broadway shows, is worth the money spent. I was tempted to reduce the rating by one star- our daughter presented us the tickets in the Orchestra section, but we were directed to the upper...More

We saw the "Lion King" at the Minskoff Theater. This is one of the largest theaters we have been in, especially on Broadway. Seats were comfy and smaller children seemed able to see the stage with their booster seats. The lobby and outer balcony have...More

A bucket list trip for my teenage son and me. It exceeded every expectation. A stunningly powerful display of art and talent of the highest order.

We saw Lion King in this theatre. It's very centrally positioned on Broadway in Times Square. The 'Lion King' advertising is all around you and the show is hyped . The production is spectacular. Drinks in the theatre are very expensive.

It was an amazing play we were middle front and we couldn't tear our eyes away! I also loved the feeling of donating to the Broadway foundation to help those in need.🦁👑

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
