Disney on Broadway celebrates 25th anniversary with epic medley of hits
Get ready to feel the love tonight, head under the sea, and let it go all at once!
On Friday's installment of Good Morning America, stars of three current Broadway hits — Aladdin, Frozen, and The Lion King — came together to sing a medley of Disney tunes from the past 25 years to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Disney Theatrical Productions.
The mix of more than two decades worth of hits kicked off with Beauty and the Beast‘s iconic number "Be Our Guest" performed by Ryann Redmond (who plays Olaf in Broadway's adaptation of Frozen), before moving into Syndee Winters and Bradley Gibson's (Nala and Simba) rendition of "Can You Feel the Love Tonight?" from The Lion King.
Other songs performed included Mary Poppins' "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" performed by Patti Murin (Anna in Frozen), Tarzan‘s "You'll Be In My Heart" performed by Arielle Jacobs and Ainsley Melham (Jasmine and Aladdin in Aladdin), The Little Mermaid‘s "Under the Sea" performed by L. Steven Taylor (Mufasa in The Lion King), Newsies‘ "Carrying the Banner" performed by the full company and Aladdin‘s "Friend Like Me" performed by Michael James Scott (who plays Genie). The celebration culminated in finishing number "Let It Go" performed by Caissie Levy who plays Elsa in the stage adaptation of Frozen.
It's a big week for Disney with the studio unveiling new details about its upcoming streaming service on Thursday that will include a mix of Disney archival classics and new original content. The service will launch Nov. 12, with subscriptions available for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year, making it the exclusive streaming home of franchises like Star Wars, Pixar, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Simpsons, and more.
