  • 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.
  • 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.
  • I've been looking forward to seeing this for a long time and after seeing it I am still amazed how well done it was. Awesome costumes and stage props. Follows the movie perfectly. What a great show!
  • The entire cast adores what they do and it is evident in how they portray their characters. The balance between animal demeanor and human emotion was seamless. Vibrant costumes, fluid movement and the smooth transition between scenes was very impressive. I've not seen many live shows but this has been the all around best so far. Well done.
  • First saw Lion King about 12 years ago. The visual effects have now become much more advanced. Amazing cast and musical score. Would lovr to see it again.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
