Close to 30 years back, the Disney animated classic amazed fans all over with its heartwarming narrative of perseverance and bravery as it follows Simba's path from his early lion cub years to his progression to the throne as King. Incorporating Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably showcases a total of five indigenous African languages, and the cast of performers involved plays a vital role in its accomplishments.
“Given that The Lion King is incredibly infused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, sustaining enthusiasm for the show is easy," reveals Stefan Monssen, a percussionist educated in African techniques.
Variety commends on the musical, describing it as a “new generation of felines” that continues to take over Broadway by storm. In this assessment, it is highlighted that the Walt Disney Company has efficiently positioned itself as a serious and enterprising player in the legitimate theater scene.
