The last time Brandon A. McCall was on stage as Simba in “The Lion King” was Wednesday, March 11, 2020, in South Bend, Indiana, just as COVID-19 was becoming prevalent in the U.S.

“We had a show that last night, and we had a meeting to talk about what was going to happen,” he says. “We were going to shut down for two weeks, but that, of course, didn’t happen.”

Three weeks later, it became permanent, and the cast and crew scattered. McCall, a graduate of Jackson-Olin High School and Alabama State University, came back to Birmingham, where he spent the pandemic with his wife, child, mother and sister.
