“Come one, come all!” In that past few years Disney’s stage musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, has made headlines. From playing the La Jolla Playhouse to the Paper Mill Playhouse and now on to Denmark, the production retells the classic story of Victor Hugo’s novel and the animated Disney film.
On top of the props, costumes and actors, music has made a large impact. Original composer and lyricist of the film, Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, had returned to work on the live musical production. Even more so, a studio cast recording will be made available on January 22, 2016.
