Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical strikingly features five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers involved is crucial in its achievements.
“Considering that The Lion King is incredibly infused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is easy," reveals Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety expresses admiration on the musical, labeling it as a “fresh generation of felines” that continues to captivate Broadway with storm. In this review, it is mentioned that the Walt Disney Company has efficiently positioned itself as a strong and ambitious player in the legitimate theater scene.
