"Amazing Show.."
May, 2016
We had great seats. The performance was great. The costumes, the set, and the music were all amazing. This show is great for all ages. The play is very similar to The Lion King cartoon with some adjustments to keep it current.
Tip: Arrive early to pick up your tickets.

"Amazing Performance"
April, 2016
This is highly recommended for all ages. The costumes in the show are so creative and each actors character seems to fit their personality. The Lion King cartoon and this play are very similar, but it's still a tear jerker when Mufasa dies... The theater check-in was really easy with Reserve Direct E-ticket. The ushers are very helpful with getting you to your seats. One person in our group left their phone after the show and the theater had it waiting for us to pick-up the next day.
Tip: Pick-up your tickets anytime the day of the show to save a few minutes when you arrive for the show.

Booked not knowing exactly where we would be sitting. We were in the centre section of the front row!!! My mum was so excited the animals touched us several times. Had a fantastic night and will always remember having front row at a Broadway show.
Tip: Dress warm the theatre was a little draftee.

Never saw anything like the Lion King before and it was amazing!
Also, purchasing tickets through ReserveDirect was an easy and painless experience! Thanks for everything!
Tip: Pick up your tickets sometime earlier in the day if you have the time. This made getting through the doors a lot faster.

My teenage daughter and I are huge musical theatre fans AND huge Disney fans AND huge Lion King fans... we planned a trip to NYC around our Lion King tickets... imagine our disappointment when we found ourselves not enjoying the epic show we have been wanting to see for so many years...! The opening number was fantastic, but unfortunately, it went down hill from there... the performances were not up to our expectations, the puppetry was distracting and unconvincing, the sets were either dated or unimpressive or both...and our seats, although very expensive, had obstructed views, which was not mentioned on Ticketmaster where we bought our tickets. We Stayed for the duration of the show, hoping the second half would be better, but it didn't. I'm still glad we saw it, as we never would have known if we hadn't, but we were definitely disappointed...

So being a Disney lover my whole life, and having grown up with The Lion King as one of my favorite films, I went in to the play with very low expectations. But I must say that they did such a wonderful job bringing every scene to life! It was vibrant, rich, and captivating! I loved every minute of it!

This show definitely went above and beyond my expectations. The props and costumes are amazing. The talent of the actors to be able to sing, dance and control those costumes is just fascinating. I would highly recommend.
