Disney on BroadwayBen Hilmer
Breathtaking! Amazing! Phenomenal! You hear these adjectives time and time again from friends, family, and others who’ve just seen a Broadway musical production. It is a truly magical experience. And, when traveling to New York City with students, experiencing a Broadway show is something you just can’t miss. Broadway boasts dozens of venues located in Manhattan’s Theater District along Broadway from 42nd Street to Lincoln Center. The majority of the shows are musicals, and they are influential forms of American culture that have helped make New York City the nation’s cultural capital. Anchoring the District’s southern end, at 214 West 42nd Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, is the New Amsterdam Theatre, home to Disney on Broadway.
A musical production company of the Disney Theatrical Group, Disney on Broadway was founded in 1993. It quickly gained a reputation within the theatre industry for creating popular and professional performances, beginning with the renowned “Beauty and the Beast”, and, most recently, “Aladdin”. Here is a list of shows Disney on Broadway has offered, or will be offering:
Beauty and the Beast
The Lion King
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
The Little Mermaid
The Jungle Book
The excitement generated by these Disney musicals is timeless. The energy before a show, the exhilaration inside when the lights dim, the opening number…all these little things build up to performances that are made for one reason: To ‘wow’ you. Years of love go into each one of these productions. The talented people who make these shows can’t wait for you to see what they have to offer next.
