Nearly three decades ago, the Disney animated classic amazed fans everywhere with its heartwarming narrative of perseverance and valor as it follows Simba's adventure from his early lion cub years to his progression to the throne as King. Incorporating Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably presents 5 indigenous African languages, and the cast of performers involved plays a vital role in its achievements.
“Considering that The Lion King is so suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is easy," reveals Stefan Monssen, a percussionist educated in African techniques.
Variety lavishes praise on the musical, calling it as a “new generation of felines” that persists to dominate Broadway with force. In this assessment, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has effectively positioned itself as a formidable and daring player in the legitimate theater scene.
In short, Disney's "The Lion King" serves as a wonder, a theatrical feat that radiates beauty, cleverness, and creativity. The on-stage adaptation of the popular 1994 animated feature surpasses its source material in virtually every aspect, from remarkable visuals and compelling storytelling to the evocative score by Lebo M and the freshly African-influenced pop songs composed by Elton John and Tim Rice.
