Disney Theatrical productions was formed in 1994 and operates under the direction of Peter Schneider and Thomas Schumacher. The company’s inaugural production, Beauty and the Beast, is now in its eighth year on Broadway.

In 1997, The Walt Disney Company completed restoration of the historic New Amsterdam Theatre on 42nd Street in New York City, reopening with the world premiére concert of Alan Menken and Tim Rice’s King David.

Later that same year, Disney opened The Lion King, which became the recipient of six 1998 Tony® Awards, including Best Musical, as well as the 1998 Grammy® Award for Best Musical Show Album. Now in its fourth sold-out year on Broadway, The Lion King can also currently be seen onstage in Los Angeles, Toronto, Tokyo and Fukuoka.

The Lion King opened in London in October 1999 and received the Evening Standard Award for Theatrical Event of the Year and Oliver Awards for Best Costume Designer and Best Theatre Choreographer.
