Three Broadway productions adapted from hit animated films from the House of Mouse will take center stage on August 2, 2018. Aladdin, the Tony-winning musical based on the 1992 animated film of the same name will be on-hand to wield some genie-inspired magic. Next, members of the cast of this season’s hit Frozen will be there to combat the summer heat with selections from their “cool” musical. Finally, the third-longest-running Broadway musical to date, The Lion King, will be on hand to remind audiences why it continues to thrill generations of theatergoers with its gripping story and award-winning music.
