Almost 30 years in the past, the Disney animated classic captivated fans around the globe with its touching narrative of resolve and valor as it follows Simba's path from his early lion cub years to his rise to the throne as King. Incorporating Swahili and Zulu, this musical remarkably showcases a total of five indigenous African languages, and the ensemble of performers involved plays a vital role in its achievements.

“Given that The Lion King is incredibly suffused with rhythms rooted in these [Gambian] traditions, sustaining enthusiasm for the show is effortless," shares Stefan Monssen, a percussionist trained in African techniques.
Variety lavishes praise on the musical, labeling it as a “new generation of felines” that keeps to take over Broadway with storm. In this review, it is noted that the Walt Disney Company has efficiently positioned itself as a strong and daring player in the legitimate theater scene.

In simple terms, Disney's "The Lion King" serves as a marvel, a theatrical feat that radiates beauty, intelligence, and innovation. The stage adaptation of the cherished 1994 animated motion picture outshines its original content in nearly all aspects, embracing 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.
