  • We've seen this show before in Brazil and we love, so we wanted to watch again, but now on Broadway. Little difference, however, wonderful the table form. The theater with excellent structure and very well located, close to Times Square. Worth checking out ...

  • The Lion King movie was a major part of my youth. I have wanted to see the play since it opened and every time I had an opportunity, something would come up. My wife bought tickets for my birthday this year and we just got out. It was absolutely amazing. How they incorporate humans and animals is astounding. There is no amount of expectation that could ruin this show. Go.
  • The musical was ok but not as good as expected. We’ve attended many Broadway shows and don't think the singing and dancing were consistently at the level we’ve come to expect from Broadway shows. We saw Anastasia and The School of Rock the previous two nights and loved both shows. Our experience was also negatively impacted by the people next to us, who used their cellphones during both acts. Surprisingly, the “workers” there wouldn’t do anything about it (like kick them out) so we tried to lean forward to get away from the cellphone light. We were in T103/T104, orchestra section.
  • My 5 year old LOVED it. The stage pieces were so impressive! We loved every second of it.
  • Lion King is one of the best Broadway shows out there. Play lasts about 2 hours with a 15 min break in the middle. The production is amazing. Must see if you're ever in New York.
  • The best show you will ever see. Everything was great then & now.
