At a press conference this morning, Ed Payton, CEO of Celebrity Attractions, announced that Disney's "The Lion King" will be part of the company's 2017-2018 Broadway season.

Gretchen Hall, President and CEO of the Little Rock Convention and Visitor's Bureau, made some opening remarks, stating that in the past, there had been "major Broadway productions that we were unable to bring because of building deficiencies" in the old Robinson Auditorium. The $70 million project to renovate, restore and expand the performance hall is 45 days away from its grand opening at 10 a.m. on November 10 and, Hall stated, "is on time and on budget." 

Disney's "The Lion King" won six Tony Awards in 1998. Its director, costume designer and mask co-designer Julie Taymor, the first woman to win a Tony Award for Direction of a Musical, continues to "supervise new productions of the show around the world," according to Celebrity Attractions.
