The Wiz was indeed a show to see! I have seen many plays in the past, but this show is the best so far. The dance, the message and music was all great. The acting and dress was colorful and on point. The singing and dancers didn't miss a beat.

Everything was spectacular except for people insisting on recording the show despite it being prohibited. I don’t understand how you can pay for tickets to this show and not enjoy it, instead trying to record or take pictures rather than just enjoying the performance. On top of that, they disturb everyone else with the glare from their phones. This is the only downside, along with the lack of friendliness from the vendors at the entrance. The staff who welcome you are very kind, but the ones selling drinks and snacks are in a rush to sell as much as possible. They shout and throw things at you, and they even add a tip at the end as if it’s nothing. I don’t think that’s right, and I hope they can improve on this. Other than that, the show is top-notch, truly wonderful, a must-see, and highly recommended for families with children!

No long waits in line. Doors open 30 min before showtime. Clean, clean toilets. Staff are helpful. Best experience i’ve had. You can’t go wrong with The Lion King- i mean it’s got awards to back it up. No matter how many times you’ve seen the movie & whatever version you saw, cannot compare to how they were able to make Africa come alive onstage! We chose the mezzanine seats to get the full effect of the set design and costumes unless you’re particular seeing the artist upclose, the mezzanine isn’t so bad.

The Lion King performance was phenomenal and deeply emotional for me as it resonated with my life story in many ways. The visual effects were mesmerizing. We had orchestra aisle seats on the right, which were definitely worth it.Unfortunately, we arrived an hour late due to a major crash on the highway that caused significant traffic delays. Chris Rivera, the manager, was very understanding and helped with our late arrival. He offered to come back the next day to see the show. The entire staff was exceptionally nice and polite. I definitely recommend the show and the theater.

My first time seeing The Lion King and seeing a show on Broadway in NYC! The show was absolutely spectacular, very moving, I had goosebumps, I think I shed a couple of tears. It’s just a beautiful play with so much love and care involved. I bought my ticket online the day before, third row back from balcony, and had a great view.Unfortunately the patron seated next to me was messaging on their phone for a large portion of the first half which impacted my enjoyment as the light was very distracting. I had asked the man to please stop several times, with no change in behaviour, I notified a staff member at half time who handled it. Please respect the show and fellow patrons and stay off your phones as directed!

We watched The Lion King at the Minskoff Theatre and it was such an awesome experience. The show was about 2 and a half hours long, with a break in the middle. You need to book ahead to ensure good seats. Easy entry process and the ushers guide you to your allocated seats. Very enjoyable, funny and entertaining for young and old. The costumes are amazing and the cast was outstanding.
