Nearly three decades ago, the Disney animated classic amazed fans all over with its warm tale of perseverance and valor as it follows Simba's adventure from his early lion cub years to his ascent to the throne as King. Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical strikingly features five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers engaged plays a vital role in its success.
“Seeing as The Lion King is extremely imbued with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, sustaining enthusiasm for the show is natural," shares Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety lavishes praise on the musical, labeling it as a “fresh generation of felines” that persists to dominate Broadway with storm. In this evaluation, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has effectively positioned itself as a strong and ambitious player in the legitimate theater scene.
In simple terms, Disney's "The Lion King" stands as a marvel, a theatrical accomplishment that emanates beauty, intelligence, and innovation. The on-stage adaptation of the beloved 1994 animated motion picture outshines its source material in almost all aspects, covering remarkable visuals and compelling storytelling to the evocative score by Lebo M and the freshly African-influenced pop songs composed by Elton John and Tim Rice.
