A lively stage adaptation of the Academy Award-winning 1994 Disney film, The Lion King is the story of a young lion prince living in the flourishing African Pride Lands.
When an unthinkable tragedy, orchestrated by Simba’s wicked uncle, Scar, takes his father’s life, Simba flees the Pride Lands, leaving his loss and the life he knew behind. Eventually companioned by two hilarious and unlikely friends, Simba starts anew. But when weight of responsibility and a desperate plea from the now ravaged Pride Lands come to find the adult prince, Simba must take on a formidable enemy, and fulfill his destiny to be king.
"The breathtakingly staged Broadway adaptation of Disney's king of the cartoon jungle is an instant theater classic." - Review by Chris Willman from Entertainment Weekly
"Awe-inspiring! Broadway theater is alive again. [Julie] Taymor's imaginative ideas seem limitless. it's a gorgeous, gasp-inducing spectacle. Most important - against all odds - it has innocence. The show appeals to our primal, childlike excitement in the power of theater to make us see things afresh." - Review by Richard Zoglin from Time Magazine
Know Before You Go
With a pulsing spectacle driven by primal African rhythms, unforgettable tunes (including Elton John and Tim Rice’s Oscar-winning “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”) and a jaw-dropping display of exotic African wildlife brought to life onstage, there are good reasons why The Lion King won a half-dozen Tony Awards in 1998. Intensely physical stage work and countless visual surprises hold your attention from start to finish.
Vaccinations are required for performances through October 31, 2021. For performances in November 2021 and beyond, we anticipate a review of policies in September, and may include a relaxation of certain provisions or an extension of this policy as the science dictates. Guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine and must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the Theatre with their valid ticket.
“Fully vaccinated” means on the day of the performance date as shown on the valid ticket, a guest is:
at least 14 days after their second dose of an FDA or WHO approved two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or
at least 14 days after their single dose of an FDA or WHO approved single dose COVID-19 vaccine.
Proof of vaccination must come directly from the healthcare provider that performed the vaccination. Guests may display proof on a smartphone or present a physical copy. New York State residents, or anyone who received a COVID-19 vaccine in New York State, may present proof through the use of the Excelsior Pass (for more details, visit: https://epass.ny.gov) or any other CDC-approved digital app.
The only exceptions are:
guests under the age of 12, who must be accompanied by an adult that meets our venue’s vaccination requirements; or
guests who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical exception or a sincerely held religious belief
For guests who are not able to be vaccinated for one of the reasons listed above, they must provide proof one of the following instead of evidence of vaccination:
negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance start time, or
negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time.
Together with the proof of vaccination, all guests 18 years or older must also present a government-issued photo ID such as a driver’s license or passport. Guests younger than 18 may use a government-issued photo ID or school photo ID. Guests under 12 must be accompanied by an adult who meets the above requirements.
Entry will be denied for guests who do not provide the documentation as required above.
At this time, no guests under the age of 4 will be admitted to the theatre.
Masks are required for all guests, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be worn at all times while visiting the Venue except when eating or drinking in designated areas. All masks must completely cover the nose and mouth and comply with the CDC guidelines for acceptable face coverings.
By virtue of entering the Theatre, guests are acknowledging that all of the statements below are true the day they visit the Theatre. If any of the statements are NOT true, guest should not come to the Venue and instead use the exchange and refund policy to re-schedule or refund their tickets.
