This is one show you must see. The production value is incredible. Stunning, really. The music is gorgeous, the vocals spot on, especially the harmonies. The cast is superb, from the young Simba to the nasty Scar. If children bug you, skip the matinee however.

I am not really a musical fan. So my opinion here should not count much. But may be this musical is a muss do in NYC. If you are not the musical typ I would not go.

The Lion King but not as you saw it on film. Brilliant costumes, great performances. The theatre is a nice size that it makes the experience quite intimate. The start of the show was amazing and you will love it. Show is split into two...More

What do you mean by lower deck? I'm a newbie so all I see are orchestra and mezzanine seats available. Which should we try to get? Thank you!

There is not a bad seat in this theatre! Lower is floor, personally the set is so awesome I preferred Mezzanine
Is it worth paying more to seat in the orchestra or is it perfectly fine in the mezzanine? Also we will be in NYC at the end of June, should we buy in advance. thanks for your help. Eleanor

We sat in the side/forward seats of the mezzanine. This was an excellent spot to see everything, particularly the characters who come out into the audience.
what type of discount could I expect on Lion King tickets if I get them at the box office on the day of the show? Are they typically readily available then?
