LION KING

Amazing show, loved every minute. Will always remember my 43rd birthday as this show made it, along with being in New York. Highly recommend, there are no bad seats in this theatre.

THE KING IS A LION

The Lion King, How should I put this? It's more, understandable than the movie because they follow everything, they never miss a line, I mean.. it's a childrens theatre spectical. I went with my two sisters, my mom, dad, and grandma. I can tell you, there is no show better than Lion King. Better than Beauty and the Beast it was wonderful. Please pick Lion King to be your favorite. I LOVED IT!

THE EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME

My grandparents took me and my brother and cousins to see this show in Greenville, SC, while it was on tour. This show had so much scenery that the actors could not fit backstage but had to hang out in the lobby. The singing and choreography was phenomenal and the creativity exhibited by the costumes was breathtaking. I have never been able to see another show without remembering it since.

Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

This ballet is a perennial entertainment, with more than enough theatrical detail to merit repeated viewings, more than enough layers of embedded history and emotional depth to fascinate again and again.

Cranston's wrenching performance stands on its own. In context, it's a terrifying reminder of how an all-too-human, anger-filled public figure, with access to a worldwide stage, can be mistaken for a god.
