Disney on Broadway owes a lot of its success to Alan Menken. He's won scores of Academy Awards and Grammys for The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin. In an event geared for Broadways pint-sized fans, hear his music performed by the Broadway Playhouse Cast at Merkin Concert Hall on February 7th.
Menken will be present at the February 7 concert to give the inside scoop on the production of his hit musicals. Directed by Sean Hartley, the Broadway Playhouse concerts introduce children ages 4-11 to classic musicals through captivating medleys, rousing sing-alongs, lively games in which audience members participate, and mini-musicals. The February 7 concert will feature songs and scenes telling the story of Beauty and the Beastas well as a game show in which young volunteers from the audience will guess which Alan Menken characters the actors are portraying.
