About

The Minskoff Theatre is one of the largest Broadway Theatres and currently home to the musical The Lion King, based on the Disney animated film of the same name. The 1,621-seat venue, designed by architects Kahn and Jacobs, is on the third floor of One Astor Plaza, an office tower constructed on the site of the former Astor Hotel. Named after Sam Minskoff and Sons, builders and owners of the high-rise building, it opened March 13, 1973, with a revival of Irene starring Debbie Reynolds. Over the years it has served as host to musicals, dance companies, and concerts.

Dressing Code

There is no formal dress code at the theatre. For all performance, attire should be comfortable and appropriate for the occasion. The theatre is air-conditioned throughout the year.

Late Seating Policy

The seating procedure for latecomers varies by seat section. Generally speaking, late patrons who are seated in the front orchestra are held in the auditorium until approximately 25 minutes after the performance begins. They are then escorted directly to their seats by an usher.

Concessions

There are two bars in the main lobby, two bars located on the theatre’s orchestra level, and two bars located on the mezzanine where various mixed drinks, sodas, and candy can be purchased. However, water and the special commemorative beverage cups are the only beverages permitted in the auditorium. No outside food or beverage, except water, is permitted in the theatre. The bars begin serving patrons 45 minutes before the performance begins.
