Don't trust everything you read on here because many are out to sabatoge shows for whatever reason. That said, this show is an extravaganza, a unique combo of brilliant set design, puppeteering, music and dance. Combine all this with a good story and singing and you have one of the most successful shows in the history of broadway. The reflection scene with Simba and his deceased father is pure broadway magic and if among the most memorable moments by far.

“Great show, neat costumes, very expensive, old theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

We saw the show on 6/25. It was awesome. The cost for my family of 4 was almost $700. We were in the balcony, front row. The kids needed booster seats to see better because there was a rail in the way. They do have boosters- just ask. I can't say enough about how good the show is, we really enjoyed it. The theatre is old looking and needs some updating. For all the money they are taking in and watching a Disney show - I expected more. The soft drinks were $6 each. The adult beverages were $18 each. Wow. I guess it is NYC. We enjoyed this show and had a great time. The views of Times Square are great from the lobby upstairs.

We left at half time, disappointed. The music nor production captivated. Another group were leaving ahead if us. We went to the matinee on 29/6/2014
