Close to 30 years back, the Disney animated classic enthralled fans around the globe with its heartwarming narrative of resolve and courage as it chronicles Simba's path from his early lion cub years to his progression to the throne as King. Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably showcases five indigenous African languages, and the group of performers engaged is pivotal in its success.
“Seeing as 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 skilled in African techniques.
Variety commends on the musical, describing it as a “fresh generation of felines” that persists to dominate Broadway by storm. In this assessment, it is mentioned that the Walt Disney Company has successfully positioned itself as a serious and daring player in the legitimate theater scene.
In simple terms, Disney's "The Lion King" stands as a marvel, a theatrical accomplishment that exudes beauty, intelligence, and creativity.
