Nearly three decades ago, the Disney animated classic captivated fans around the globe with its warm story of resolve and bravery as it traces Simba's path from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical impressively features a total of five indigenous African languages, and the group of performers engaged plays a vital role in its success.
“Considering that The Lion King is incredibly suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, sustaining enthusiasm for the show is easy," explains Stefan Monssen, a percussionist educated in African techniques.
Variety expresses admiration on the musical, calling it as a “new generation of felines” that continues to captivate Broadway through force. In this review, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has successfully positioned itself as a strong and daring player in the legitimate theater scene.
