Prepare yourself, because The Lion King is springing onto the stage at the Minskoff Theatre on Wednesday 3rd January 2024! After two decades and one year on tour, this stunning visual work of art keeps traveling all around North America.
Almost 30 years in the past, the Disney animated classic amazed fans around the globe with its touching narrative of determination and valor as it traces Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Incorporating Swahili and Zulu, this musical strikingly features 5 indigenous African languages, and the cast of performers engaged plays a vital role in its accomplishments.
“Given that The Lion King is extremely suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, maintaining enthusiasm for the show is natural," shares Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety expresses admiration on the musical, labeling it as a “new generation of felines” that persists to take over Broadway with force. In this assessment, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has successfully positioned itself as a serious and enterprising player in the legitimate theater scene.
In short, Disney's "The Lion King" is a wonder, a theatrical accomplishment that exudes beauty, smartness, and originality. The on-stage adaptation of the beloved 1994 animated feature exceeds its original content in nearly all aspects, covering dazzling visuals and compelling storytelling to the evocative score by Lebo M and the freshly African-imbued pop songs composed by Elton John and Tim Rice.
All stage performances are highly recommended at the Minskoff Theatre in New York. With state-of-the-art acoustics and a grand performance space, the establishment in this state offers the perfect setting for truly enjoying a complete Lion King spectacle.
