We all know the story. The lion cub Simba, the son of King Mufasa and Queen Sarabi, will someday rule as king over the Pride Lands of Africa. However, Mufasa’s younger brother, Scar, wants the throne and plots to get rid of Mufasa and Simba so he can become king. The musical is much the same as the movie, but with some additional songs which reflect an authentic sense of tribal rhythms. These new songs are just as good as the originals we all love, including “He Lives in You”, a song which reminds Simba that his father is always with him, and “Shadowland”, a haunting tune sung by Nala who must leave her pride to save her home.
Music by Elton John & Time Rice
