TikTok’s fan-made crowd sourced Ratatouille musical is making the jump from social media to the stage. Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical is going to debut as an actual show for a one-night-only concert on January 1st, which will benefit The Actors Fund! Isn’t it exciting? A better start for a better year!
The production company behind Broadway’s Slave Play and Sea Wall/A Life has come up with a glorious decision of presenting a one-time streaming event called ‘Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical’ as a New Year’s Day for the welfare of the Actors. The musical phenomenon, also known as the “Ratatousical,” took off on TikTok after composer Emily Jacobson posted an “Ode to Remy” that composer Daniel Mertzlufft converted into musical theater fare. The live show follows a months-long collaborative effort that took place on TikTok. Inspired by a short song about “Remy the Ratatouille” written by TikToker Emily Jacobson (@e_jaccs) that was posted in August, “Ratatouille: the Musical” brought together composers, singers, choreographers, arrangers, and designers from across the app after composer Daniel Mertzlufft’s musical theater arrangement of Jacobson’s song went viral.
An initiation towards the project began in November, with the Broadway producer Ken Davenport posting his own TikTok video professing his desire to get Ratatouille to Broadway and the post mustered more than a million views in 24 hours.
