If you haven't seen this yet, then get on down to the mesa and enjoy Julie Taymor's family-friendly adaptation of this now classic disney story.

This is truly how Broadway should be experienced! The Lion King's costumes and staging are over the top! You will fall in love with the young actor's who play Simba and Nala. But the actor who plays Rafiki will make you wish this character was on the stage more! The whole ensemble is brilliant.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
