Close to 30 years back, the Disney animated classic enthralled fans around the globe with its warm story of perseverance and valor as it follows Simba's path from his early lion cub years to his ascent to the throne as King. Incorporating Swahili and Zulu, this musical strikingly features a total of five indigenous African languages, and the cast of performers participating plays a vital role in its accomplishments.
“Given that The Lion King is extremely infused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is easy," explains Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety commends on the musical, calling it as a “fresh generation of felines” that keeps to dominate Broadway with force. In this evaluation, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has efficiently positioned itself as a serious and enterprising player in the legitimate theater scene.
In simple terms, Disney's "The Lion King" stands as a marvel, a theatrical achievement that radiates beauty, cleverness, and originality. The stage adaptation of the beloved 1994 animated feature outshines its original content in virtually all aspects, embracing stunning visuals and compelling storytelling to the evocative score by Lebo M and the freshly Africanized pop songs composed by Elton John and Tim Rice.
