The Ratatouille Tik Tok Musical That Became a Sensation

Ratatouille: The Musical started as a meme, then a viral TikTok video until ultimately becoming a hit Broadway musical that Disney approved. How is that possible, especially during a pandemic? This week, Jordan and Joshua talk to a few of the key players in turning a short internet video into a full-scale production. Jordan and Joshua speak with Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley, the writers of Ratatouille: The Musical (or Ratatousical if you'd like) to explain the incredible journey that this musical has undertaken. They also speak with Greg Nobile, CEO of Seaview Productions, who explains how he was able to get in contact with Disney representatives to secure their blessing for the once-unauthorized musical version of their hit Pixar film. And finally, the hosts chat with Daniel Mertzlufft who fell into the role of composer for the musical and how this experience has changed his life forever. Beyond breaking through its internet fame, Ratatouille: The Musical also raised over $2 million for The Actors Fund, a charitable organization aiming to help struggling film and theater actors, most notably during this pandemic that has shut down most if not all film and theatrical productions across the country.
