Nearly three decades ago, the Disney animated classic captivated fans everywhere with its warm story of perseverance and courage as it traces Simba's adventure from his early lion cub years to his progression to the throne as King. Showcasing Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably showcases five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers engaged plays a vital role in its success.
“Considering that The Lion King is extremely suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, keeping enthusiasm for the show is natural," shares Stefan Monssen, a percussionist skilled in African techniques.
Variety expresses admiration on the musical, calling it as a “fresh generation of felines” that persists to captivate Broadway with storm. In this review, it is mentioned 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" stands as a wonder, a theatrical feat that radiates beauty, smartness, and innovation. The live adaptation of the cherished 1994 animated film outshines its source material in virtually every aspect, covering stunning 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.
