In 2013 Disney Theatrical took the D23 Expo by storm with their Broadway and Beyond concert. The evening consisted of songs from every show from Beauty and the Beast right through to Newsies and the evening ended with a special performance of "Somebody's Got Your Back" from the then upcoming Aladdin.
Well D23 have announced that Disney Theatrical are returning to this year's D23 Expo with The Originals and the concert will be bigger and better than ever as it takes the audience on a musical journey through some of Disney's greatest Broadway numbers! Due to the overwhelming demand for the 2013 event, the 2015 concert will be held not once but twice on the main Stage 23!
Broadway and Beyond's Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins) and Josh Strickland (Tarzan) will both be returning for The Originals and joining them will be Aladdin's very own James Monroe Iglehart who will also host the 70 minute extravaganza!
Disney on Broadway's The Originals will take place on Saturday 15th August at 11am and 2pm on Stage 23 at the D23 Expo in Anaheim. Tickets and more information on the D23 Expo can be found here.
I can't make it this year (oh how I wish I could after reading this) but one year I swear I'll make it to one of these!!
