Celebrating 25 Magical Years of Disney on Broadway, a one-night-only concert event benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will take place November 4 at 8 PM at the New Amsterdam Theatre.
The evening will feature music from Disney’s 25-year run on Broadway, which launched with the 1993 premiere of Beauty and the Beast. The concert will also include songs from the Disney stage productions of Aida, Aladdin, Frozen, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Newsies, and Tarzan, plus a few surprises.
Celebrating 25 Magical Years of Disney on Broadway will be headlined by a lineup of Broadway favorites to be announced.
“From its first production of Beauty and the Beast to its current smash hits on Broadway and touring the country, Disney Theatrical Productions has been a stalwart friend and champion,” said Tom Viola, executive director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. “The people onstage, backstage, and in the audiences of Disney on Broadway shows have raised more than $18 million for those who need help the most.”
“Broadway Cares rose from a time of crisis and need to become an essential part of the Broadway landscape. It would be hard to imagine our community without the essential resource that is Broadway Cares,” added Thomas Schumacher, president and producer of Disney Theatrical Productions and executive vice president of Broadway Cares’ Board of Trustees. “This special evening allows our Disney on Broadway family to both express our deep thanks and to raise much-needed funds for Broadway Cares.”
Tickets are now on sale at BroadwayCares.org or by calling (212) 840-0770 ext. 229. VIP packages are also available.
