'Disney's The Lion King' circles back to Benedum in late 2013
After a five-year absence, “Disney's The Lion King” will make a return appearance at the Benedum Center next September.
The award-winning Broadway musical will open the PNC Broadway Across America-Pittsburgh 2013-14 season with a four-week engagement that runs Sept. 3 to 29.
Still running on Broadway where it debuted in 1997, “The Lion King” recently became the highest-grossing Broadway show in history.
The musical sold out both of its previous Pittsburgh runs — a six-week engagement in 2004 as well as the six-week return stay in 2008.
“The Lion King” will be offered as part of the seven-show PNC Broadway Across America-Pittsburgh subscriber season. Additional shows will be announced early in 2013.
