Disney's Aida To Return In 2021

Image result for aida broadway logoAnyone who has read any of my blogs, know that I am not exactly the biggest Disney fan in the world. So imagine my surprise back in 2000, when I sat down at the Palace Theatre to see this new musical called Aida, and loved it. Yes I said it. I loved it. Now I guess you could say I enjoyed it so much because it wasn't an animated film first.

Or maybe I just liked it because it was so good. All I know is, is that it is the only Disney musical that I saw more than once. Now hear we are twenty years later, and this award winning musical is making a comeback. The show, which features a Tony Award winning score by Elton John and Tim Rice, will launch a National tour at New Jersey's Paper Mill Playhouse on February 4, 2021, and play thru March 7, 2021.

It was also announced that Schele Williams, who played Nehebka in the 2000 Broadway production, will direct the show, and that it will also feature a new updated book by David Henry Hwang, who co-wrote the original script with Linda Woolverton and Robert Falls. This new production will also feature choreography by Camille A. Brown, sets and costumes by Tony Award winner Bob Crowley, and lighting by Tony Award winner Natasha Katz. As of now, no other cities or cast have been announced. Be sure to check this website for further updates. Until next time theatre fans.
