I’ve seen The Lion King On Broadway twice and every time is simply amazing. The costumes, set design, and the music are simply amazing. Whether you have kids or you are a kid at heart, this classic will take you back in time and make you walk down memory lane. Be sure to bring tissue and get ready to sing along, clap, and stand for their awesome performance. You will not regret coming here! Oh and do splurge on a drink so you can take the cup home!
Best broadway show in New York! The experience was unreal and one of the best things we did and saw in New York. Will definitely watch it again as the cast is unreal. The performance is mesmerizing and makes you want more. The story line is exactly like the movie and the level of detail is amazing. Worth every penny and a must see.
