JELANI REMY AND ENSEMBLE Steven Taylor is excited to be continuing the rich history culture and the African mask work that makes up part of the majesty of “The Lion King.” “To see African-Americans represented like we are in this show, there’s nothing like it,” said Taylor, a native son of Indianapolis who currently resides in New York City. He has been a member of the show’s cast for eight years starting out as a member of the show’s ensemble before taking on the pivotal roles of bad boy lion, Scar and Pride Rock patriarch, Mufasa. Taylor will be reprising his role as Mufasa when he and the rest of the talented cast bring the timeless story once again to Pittsburgh’s Benedum Center for a three week stint beginning September 3 and running through September 29.
