This is one of 4 Broadway shows we saw in our 10 days in NYC. As a production this one was number 1. The set the costumes were amazing. Obviously growing up with and loving the lion king movie. This was bang on in its delivery. Enjoyed every part of it and would definitely recommend it to others. Like all Broadway shows the cost is up there but you definitely got what you paid for in this instance

Shows are something I’ve rarely done, but this was well worth it!! Stunning costumes, incredible performances and set, blown away. It’s fairly expensive for good seats, but once you see how much time and effort must have been put into the production it’s good value. The live music was also fantastic, the conductor doing an amazing job keeping things linked together to the split second throughout the performance. Go and do it!!

Fun, wonderful show! It was amazing, from cotumes, to music , to acting...all perfect!
We sat in row U, and could see very well. We were on an aisle, several of the characters came right down our aisle.
I'm a plus size woman, and my friend is larger than I am, and we were both comfortable!

This Broadway extravaganza is so much better than the original movie. The opening is simply spectacular! All throughout there’s great choreography, wonderful music, unbelievable puppetry, absolutely unbelievable costumes & beautiful singing. This production is funny & emotional. Be prepared to be astonished! There’s nothing else like it. Go see Broadway’s version of The Disney movie, The Lion King. It is located 200 W45th St. In the Minskoff Theatre.
