I loved the staging of this show. The combination of puppetry with the actors was really unique. The entire cast was fabulous. I also loved being in a theater where the seats are not smooshed together, making for a very comfortable experience. Would definitely recommend...More

I would highly recommend to anyone, but especially families with small(er) children. We went to the 2 o'clock Saturday show in a snow storm, and had an amazing time. The animals were incredible, the story was engaging and funny and the singing was great.

Everything about this show is wonderful. The set, costumes, actors, music are all amazing. This is one of my favorite shows. Took my elderly parents and they loved it. Took our 3 children years ago, and they loved it. This truly is a classic! Outstanding!

It was my first visit to New York, so seeing a show on Broadway was a must. Unfortunately, some shows are just extortionate. The Lion King was actually significantly more affordable than others, although for excellent central stalls seats we still paid over 100 dollars...More

Definitely need at least 3 hours after the show I would do 3 1/2 to account for getting out, getting a cab and traffic!
