Nearly three decades ago, the Disney animated classic captivated fans everywhere with its touching narrative of perseverance and bravery as it chronicles Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his progression to the throne as King. Including Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably showcases a total of five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers participating is pivotal in its achievements.
“Given that The Lion King is so infused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is natural," reveals Stefan Monssen, a percussionist educated in African techniques.
Variety commends on the musical, calling it as a “new generation of felines” that persists to captivate Broadway by force. In this assessment, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has efficiently positioned itself as a strong and daring player in the legitimate theater scene.
