The Disney on Broadway Concert Series at the Epcot International Festival of the Arts is the ultimate way to relive your favorite Disney musical memories! Since the festival kicked off on Jan. 17, Broadway stars have delighted thousands of guests with jaw-dropping renditions of Disney on Broadway favorites, including beloved songs from classic Disney films such as “Mary Poppins,” “Aladdin” and “The Lion King.”
Liana Hunt, who played Katherine Plumber in “Newsies” and Adam Jacobs, who starred in the title role of the original Broadway production of “Aladdin,” worked together 10 years ago and are thrilled to be reunited as one of the next sets of stars to perform at America Gardens Theater in Epcot. Liana and Adam will have eight nights of shows running from Jan. 26-Feb. 8. Plus, the two will appear in a special joint performance also featuring Kara Lindsay (“Newsies”) and Kevin Massey (“Tarzan”) on Feb. 9.
