Ben Lipitz Obituary, Death – Be sure to ask him about the fantastic anecdotes he has to offer about his time spent working behind the scenes on Broadway and you won’t be disappointed. It was mentioned that Ben was an important member of the Disney family in a message that was posted on social media, and that he welcomed me into the The Lion King – Musical family with open arms. His generous personality and brilliant sense of humor will be dearly missed for the rest of time.
Ben Lipitz has died. In “The Lion King,” Ben Lipitz plays the role of Simba, a legendary lion. Since he has performed the role of Pumbaa on the Broadway stage more than 6,200 times, it is safe to assume that he is well acquainted with the “Hakuna Matata” way of thinking. In addition, he has performed the roles of Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof,” Max Bialystock in “The Producers,” and Michael in “God of Carnage” on stage.
Through the use of social media, we are able to hear about the countless individuals whose lives he touched and witness the enormous outpouring of affection that has been shown for him. He was in a league of his own, to put it bluntly. We talked on a daily basis, and the Sunday before he passed away, I checked in with him by calling to see how he was doing and leaving him one final voicemail. I am sending a lot of love to his lovely wife Rosalie, as well as to their wonderful children Matthew and Mikaela. I am sure they will all appreciate it.
