Close to 30 years back, the Disney animated classic captivated fans all over with its warm narrative of determination and courage 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 strikingly showcases five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers involved plays a vital role in its success.
“Considering that The Lion King is incredibly suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, maintaining enthusiasm for the show is effortless," explains Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety expresses admiration on the musical, describing it as a “fresh generation of felines” that persists to take over Broadway through storm. In this review, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has effectively positioned itself as a strong and ambitious player in the legitimate theater scene.
In a nutshell, Disney's "The Lion King" serves as a wonder, a theatrical achievement that radiates beauty, cleverness, and creativity.
