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.🦁👑

Undoubtedly, one of the best experiences of my life. Lion King has always been a hit favourite of mine growing up. I had no idea that my childhood fascination with Lion King would rekindle itself on a Broadway Stage like this, right in front of...More

The show exceeded all expectations and was absolutely amazing. The theater was very clean and the seats were comfortable. Alcoholic drinks are $16, but you get a souvenir cup to keep.

Small theater which means there isn't Ava's seat in the theater. Saw The Lion King- an entertaining, beautiful production. Fun for all ages. Talented cast, beautiful scenery. An evening well spent.

We went to watch Lion King and it was absolutely incredible! The theatre itself is really clean and comfortable too. The beverages were not too badly priced for New York and a theatre and I kept my little flask that it came in too.

Very cold inside. Many of us asked to close the air-condition but they didn't! We couldn't enjoy the play cause of the chilly atmosphere

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.
Hi I am planning on seeing show but I wanted to know if there are ever any discounts on ticket price for the Lion King show. Which site?

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
