The Lion King Autism Friendly Performance
PNC Broadway Across America - Pittsburgh

The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust is proud to partner with Disney Theatrical Productions for this very special performance of Disney’s The Lion King. This presentation will be a sensory-friendly performance that allows families with members on the Autism spectrum to experience a regular Broadway production with several alterations that meet the needs of the audience. Pittsburgh will be the third city to offer this type of program, and The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust remains committed to making theater and the arts accessible to all audiences.

Experience the phenomenon of Disney’s THE LION KING when Pittsburgh’s best-loved musical makes a triumphant return to the Benedum Center following its record-breaking 2008 engagement! Marvel at the breathtaking spectacle of animals brought to life by award-winning director Julie Taymor, whose visual images audiences will remember forever. Thrill to the rhythms of the African Pridelands and an unforgettable score including Elton John and Tim Rice’s Oscar®-winning song “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” and “Circle Of Life.” Let your imagination run wild when the Tony Award®-winning Broadway sensation returns to the Benedum Center stage.
