Almost 30 years in the past, the Disney animated classic amazed fans all over with its touching story of resolve and valor as it traces Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably showcases 5 indigenous African languages, and the group of performers participating is pivotal in its success.
“Given that The Lion King is extremely suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is natural," explains Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety commends on the musical, labeling it as a “new generation of felines” that persists to dominate Broadway by storm. In this evaluation, it is mentioned that the Walt Disney Company has efficiently positioned itself as a strong and ambitious player in the legitimate theater scene.
