Lion King Seating Chart Minskoff Theatre

The theatre has a seating capacity of 1,621. 

Minskoff Theatre is one of the many Broadway theatres that has something for everyone. From the comfort of Orchestra seats to the intimacy of Rear Mezzanine, there is a perfect seat for just about every guest. Orchestra seats offer great views of the stage and are some of the most expensive seats. Mezzanine is a more affordable option, and you will still be able to clearly see all of the performance, unless your seats are designated as limited view and many shows do not sell limited view seats for group purchases. The best seats are Premium Orchestra seats. These tickets may be expensive but they are well worth it.

Our goal is to provide the best available seats for all guests. Customers choose their section, not the specific seats, which are assigned by the box office based on availability at the time of payment. You will know the exact seats for your group after you make a payment, so the sooner you pay for your seats the better. When you are ready to book tickets for your group, we recommend that you start by choosing a section on, e.g., Prime Orchestra, Rear Orchestra/Prime Mezzanine, Front/Side Mezzanine. Once you select a date, section, and number of group tickets, and submit your request, our Broadway Inbound group sales team will confirm the exact seat locations after you complete your purchase.
