Close to 30 years back, the Disney animated classic amazed fans all over with its heartwarming narrative of perseverance and courage as it follows Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Including Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably features 5 indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers involved plays a vital role in its achievements.
“Seeing as The Lion King is incredibly infused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is easy," explains Stefan Monssen, a percussionist trained in African techniques.
Variety commends on the musical, describing it as a “fresh generation of felines” that keeps to captivate Broadway with storm. In this assessment, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has successfully positioned itself as a strong and ambitious player in the legitimate theater scene.
In a nutshell, Disney's "The Lion King" is a marvel, a theatrical accomplishment that exudes beauty, smartness, and creativity. The stage adaptation of the popular 1994 animated motion picture exceeds its source material in virtually every aspect, embracing 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.
