Almost 30 years in the past, the Disney animated classic captivated fans everywhere with its heartwarming narrative of resolve and bravery as it traces Simba's journey from his early lion cub years to his ascent to the throne as King. Including Swahili and Zulu, this musical impressively showcases five indigenous African languages, and the group of performers engaged plays a vital role in its achievements.
“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 educated in African techniques.
Variety expresses admiration on the musical, labeling it as a “novel generation of felines” that keeps to take over Broadway by force. In this evaluation, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has effectively positioned itself as a formidable and daring player in the legitimate theater scene.
