I was excited to watch the Lion King . I became teary-eyed , when it started..the costumes, scene setting. music was beautiful. It was emotionally moving with an important message about life. loyalty and family. I will never forget it. Go see it

I found The Lion King on Broadway, NYC to be true entertainment! The costumes were absolutely incredible; most likely the best of any show you'll ever see! Cudos to all the actors and actesses -- magnificently done! The music was very moving as well. This is a must see show! Looking forward to seeing it again in the future!

4.5 star rating Michele Loppnow from Watertown, WI USA


This show was spectacular. You can appreciate the effort put forth by all that were involved in order to make the show successful. The amount of detail put into the play is unbelievable, the costumes, props, lighting, and sound bring pride rock to life. Would recommend this play and theatre as a must see!

4.5 star rating NEECEY from Phila, where we have manners


OK, let me explain myself, the show was FANTASTIC, but I was so distracted by the rude ushers and the obnoxious audience that I could not enjoy the show. PLEASE STOP allowing people to bring food into the theatre. The lady next to me was eating hard pretzels for goodness' sakes! And leave your cell phones at home you about 15 morons forgot to put them on vibrate and 3 actually answered the phone during the show!. Never again.

4.5 star rating Patricia from Brooklyn, New York


This show is awesome, in my opinion it has put Disney in class by itself. I think everybody need to experience this show TWICE! I saw it in 1998 for my birthday and now my 7 year old daughter will experience the wonder of The Lion King for her birthday. Talk about Life coming full Circle. Go see this show.
