This theatre provides an excellent nostalgic feel to the whole experience of going to a live show on Broadway. The actual show was outstanding and the experience was memorable.

As expected, a great production on broadway. Genie stole the show (as he should...!) very genuine to the origins film meaning the songs and story was familiar and easy to follow for anyone who has seen the origins film.

Beautiful theater! The snacks were limited and the prices sky high. We would perfekt freshly made popcorn and friendlier prices. The musical was great!
