DISNEY’S THE LION KING

 

Tickets for Disney’s THE LION KING On Sale

Performances Begin On Tuesday, September 3 and Play for Four Weeks through Sunday, September 29 at The Benedum Center.

Pittsburgh, PA: Disney Theatrical Productions and PNC Broadway Across America-Pittsburgh announced today that tickets for the long-awaited return engagement of Disney’s THE LION KING.   Pittsburgh’s most eagerly awaited return will once again leap onto the Benedum Center stage on Tuesday, September 3 for a limited engagement of four weeks through Sunday, September 29.  The opening night is Friday, September 6 at 8:00 p.m.

The show’s six-week premiere engagement in 2004 played a sold-out run at the Benedum Center and received the following praise from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (1/12/04),  “ The Lion King is a triumph of visual design, but it is also a marriage of human and animal, of actor and puppet, that seems to extend and multiply theatrical possibility.” For Pittsburgh’s second sold-out engagement, six-weeks in 2008, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review commented (1/15/08), “The spectacle and solid storytelling of The Lion King continue to delight audiences as this Disney musical makes a return appearance in Pittsburgh.”

In Pittsburgh THE LION KING will play Tuesday through Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Friday evenings at 8:00 p.m., Saturdays at 2:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 1:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. There will be a 1:00 p.m. matinee performance on Thursday, September 26.  Beginning Monday, May 6, 2013 tickets (starting at $30) will be available at the Theater Square Box Office, 655 Penn Avenue, and online at www.TrustArts.org.  To charge tickets, call (412) 456-4800.
