TikTokers’ Collaborative ‘Ratatouille’ Musical To Star Wayne Brady, Tituss Burgess, Adam Lambert

Broadway stars Wayne Brady, Tituss Burgess, Andrew Barth Feldman, and Ashley Park will headline the TikTok-born Ratatouille musical.

The for-charity clearly show, nicknamed “Ratatousical,” is dependent on Disney/Pixar’s 2007 animated film about Remy, a Parisian rat chasing his culinary goals. It started baking in August, when TikToker Emily Jacobsen uploaded a quick unique “love ballad” praising “Remy, the ratatouille, the rat of my dreams.” Her clip caught the eye of New York City-primarily based composer Daniel Mertzlufft, who came back again with a edition organized for a total-scale stage ensemble.

Other TikTokers and composers chimed in with their very own creations, and the relaxation was haricot vert.
