Disney's Hercules

The classic tale of the underdog is coming to the stage! Disney Theatrical is coming to New York in a whole new way, with the tale of Hercules. Disney’s Hercules has found stars in Jelani Alladin, Krysta Rodriguez, and Roger Bart and we just can’t wait to see it come to life!

Joining the production will be Spring Awakening’s Krysta Rodriguez at Meg, Roger Bart (voice of young Hercules) as Hades, Aladdin’s James Monroe Iglehart as Phil, and Come From Away‘s Tamika Lawrence as the lead muse, Calliope.

The cast will also feature Jeff Hiller as Panic, Ramona Keller as Thalia, and Rema Webb as Terpsichore; along with a special featured performance by 2019 Tony Honor Award recipient Broadway Inspirational Voices.

In magical news, the original songs from Alan Menken and David Zippel’s songs from the 1997 animated film, along with new material and an adapted book by Pulitzer Prize finalist Kristoffer Diaz.
