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 my very eyes. Without a second thought, I payed for a seat situated a couple... 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 went to see the Lion King. Food and drink is available inside for purchase. The staff were friendly and got us to our seats. The seats were quite comfortable, great view of the stage from row Q and the theatre was very comfortable temperature wise. We stayed near Times Sq so only a short walk from our apartment.

We saw the Lion King at the Minskoff Theatre. This review is about the Theatre only. The Lion King is reviewed separately. The Theatre employees were very organized and got people in and out of the theatre very efficiently. We got some seats where we let the theatre pick our exact seats. The seats turned out to be in pretty... More

Lion King was amazing! Very well maintained and lovely theater! Theater staff was friendly and helpful finding our seats. We were on the mezzanine, 1st row, left side, and loved our seats. Bar staff was funny and suggested very good drinks. The whole experience was worth every single penny!

Lovely theatre - efficient handling of crowds, tickets, and ushering. Comfy seats with GREAT views - I'm a short person, so I really appreciated that. Theatre was uncomfortably warm - I felt bad for the performers.

Thank herestoadventures

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
