A large part of the Disney community will know the name ‘Alan Menken’ and it will immediately conjure up songs from The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin (and in most case an impromptu sing-a-long). Menken has been writing music for almost 4 decades and D23 Expo guests will be treated to an unforgettable performance by the Disney Legend in a one-man show called A Whole New World of Alan Menken! Menken will share stories about his career while performing some of the music that has been a staple in many of our lives.
The one-man show written by Menken will be directed by Richard Kraft who was the creative director for the highly acclaimed Disney’s The Little Mermaid in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl starring Sara Bareilles and Rebel Wilson. It will be produced by Laura Engel, Richard Kraft and Alison Ahart Williams, and Tim Fox whose credits include The Nightmare Before Christmas in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, Disney’s The Little Mermaid in Concert at The Hollywood Bowl, and the receient recipient of two Emmy awards for its PBS broadcast Live from Lincoln Center: Danny Elfman’s Music from the Films of Tim Burton.
This is set to be an amazing and unforgettable event. It is scheduled for Sunday, July 16, 2017 with performances at 1:30pm and 5:00pm in Hall D23 of the Anaheim Convention Center.
Tickets are available now by visiting D23Expo.com.
Until next time, here is to beers, cheers and Mickey Ears! °o°
