There was plenty of inspiration for bringing this show to the stage. Dan Fields, Executive Creative Director at Disney Live Entertainment shared about the initial moment this show became an idea for him. He said, “The moment we saw ‘Save the City’ performed in the ‘Hawkeye’ series on Disney+, it sparked an idea: What if we could bring ‘Rogers: The Musical’ to life at Disneyland Resort? I’m thrilled that audiences are finally going to get to experience the humor, heroism and heart of that show on stage at the Hyperion Theater.”

Dave Bushore, Vice President – Franchise Creative and Marketing at Marvel Studios shared about working on this show from the perspective of a Marvel Studios executive. He shared that “Being able to work with the amazing creatives at Disney Live Entertainment in expanding a fan-favorite scene from the ‘Hawkeye’ series into a real musical theater production has been awesome! It really speaks to the passionate creativity for bringing this to life, along with the tremendous inspiration and support from the team that started it all.”

Rogers: The Musical Composer, Conductor and Arranger Christopher Lennertz shared about bringing the music to life for this show saying, “It was important to us to continue the best of both Avengers and Broadway traditions, infusing humor, heart and heroic action into the music. The score has memorable melodies and a huge scope of instrumentation that match the iconic presence of our hero. Audiences will hear big band jazz, modern funk, classic orchestra and more.”
