I'm not quite sure what to say since only one shoo on your list (The Lion King) is a Broadway show. I guess go with that one?

As Doug says, all but Lion King are considered off Broadway which is really not the same experience. (smaller theaters, usually smaller casts, much less glitz and closer to a road show production in some cases). Lion King is quite a spectacle and appreciated by most, but it does attract a lot of kids and is never discounted if budget is an issue. I would also seriously consider "In the Heights" which is a terrific show with great dancing and a very "NYC" storyline.

If you like magic, you might also consider Steve Cohen's Chambermagic at the Waldorf. http://www.chambermagic.com/main/#chambermagic Blue Man Group is very popular with teens as is Fuezerbruta, also off Broadway. Look for discounts to many of these on the left column of broadwaybox.com

Father and son ages 60 and 16: I'd say definitely go see "In the Heights."

Thankyou for those helpful replies.
Lion King it will be, its big and ON broadway!
We would like very much to experience "The man of magic" but we travel light and suits and ties are out of the question,

best Rhettski.
