Our favorite Disney movies wouldn’t be the same without the musical genius of Alan Menken. We’ve grown up humming, singing, and even belting out his music! And now this beloved Disney Legend will present his new one-man show, A Whole New World of Alan Menken, at D23 Expo this summer. Needless to say, this year’s ultimate Disney fan event just got a little more spectacular!Written and performed by Menken himself, the show will showcase the composer’s magical music and offer entertaining insights about his incredible career that spans nearly 40 years. He composed the stunning sounds behind Disney’s The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast (both animated and live-action versions), Newsies, Aladdin, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Enchanted, and Tangled. Menken has won 8 Academy Awards (with 19 Academy Award nominations), 11 Grammy Awards, 7 Golden Globe Awards, and a Tony Award for his brilliant music.
Performances of A Whole New World of Alan Menken will be held in Hall D23 on July 16 at 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. at the Anaheim Convention Center. This show is definitely a must-see!
