“We love The Lion King”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We've seen quite a few shows in NYC, but this musical we've seen twice and we still think this is one of the best shows ever.The first time we sat balcony which was nice to get a good (bird)view on stage, but last summer we sat right at the 2nd row and that was nice too, then you have a really good sight at the costumes and faces.
We really recommend The Lion King. If you're in NYC and you would like to see a show, you should go there!

“Boring; not worth the money”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Contrary to what most people say, for me it's just plain boring. I didn't take the kids, but if I would have, they'd have arrived to the same conclusion since -to top it off- it's too long.

“Wonderful costumes and theatrics!”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

I was amazed at the brilliance of the costumes in the musical. I also liked the theatrics and the music. One of the female singers was excellent. The rest of the singers were just okay and the background singers saved their performance. I highly recommend singing this play.

“Can't Go Wrong....We thought.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

This is an icon of Broadway and we were not disappointed in the production. However, we will never go to a matinee again! The rude people around us opening noisy candies while we were focused on the dialogue. If you are going, be considerate...EAT before you go!
