For the next 3 weeks, royalty arrives in East Lansing: Disney’s The Lion King ascends to the throne at the Wharton Center, where it's nice to get the first word in. For The Lion King, South African actress Mukelisiwe Goba gets to use her original language, Zulu, to announce that the Lion is on its way.
