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.

Individual tickets for “The Lion King” will go on sale to the general public on May 6, 2013.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
