Disney composer and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken will be having a special one-man show at D23 Expo this Summer in Anaheim, CA.
The show is being called A Whole New World of Alan Menken, and there will be two performances on July 16, one at 1:30 pm and the another at 5 pm. The Show will take place in Hall D23 of the Anaheim Convention Center. During the show, Menken will play songs from his legendary catalogue, as well as tell anecdotal stories from throughout his career.
Menken is most notable for his work on Disney classics like Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Enchanted, and Tangled. Menken has also produced musical numbers for many Broadway productions such as Little Shop of Horrors, Sister Act, Newsies, and A Bronx Tale.
If you plan on going to D23 this Summer, this show seems like it would be a must. From “A Whole New World,” to “Colors of the Wind,” and “Go the Distance,” everyone has had at least one Menken composition stuck in their head at one point or another.
