We recently saw The Lion King, which was amazing. The theatre is very well run as compared to other Broadway venues. Very smooth entrance and the very best and easiest way out. The staff is all smiles and moves the lines very well in and...More

The show was really amazing. I couldn’t say anything negative about the performances. However, 15 mins into the show we noticed a rat going back and forth near the door. We told the usher after it crawled near my foot. They moved us downstairs but...More

Yes, we FINALLY saw the Broadway production of The Lion King, which opened 21 years ago. Julie Taymor’s direction, costume design, mask/puppet co-design with Michael Curry make this a spectacular show. Garth Fagan, Lifetime Achievement Award winner for choreography, likewise enhances the play with modern...More

Despite paying $150+ per ticket, the reminder to turn off cell phones and a presumed understanding of common theatre courtesy, patrons all around us during the 1.26.18 8 pm show of The Lion King were texting, checking email and sneaking photos. That was annoying enough...More

Wow. It may be a tad expensive, but it’s certainly worth it and once in a lifetime experience you must do! It is sensational and the amount of effort that goes into the casting, dress, drops, choreography etc is immense! So impressed by this show!
