Disney On Broadway To Present 'Live At The New Am' Actors Fund Benefit


Disney on Broadway is celebrating the reopening of Broadway with Live at The New Am: A Benefit Concert for The Actors Fund!

The concert will honor the remarkable support that The Actors Fund has provided to members of the entertainment industry throughout the pandemic, will treat audiences to the most-beloved hit songs from Disney’s Broadway shows – including "Beauty and the Beast,” “A Whole New World,” “Circle of Life” and “Let it Go” - performed by Disney on Broadway stars Ashley Brown (Mary Poppins), Michael James Scott (Aladdin), Kissy Simmons (The Lion King) and Josh Strickland (Tarzan).

The concert will play four performances July 22-24 at 7:30 and July 25 at 2.

“For 16 months, New Yorkers have been eager to start going to the theatre again,” said Thomas Schumacher, President & Producer Disney Theatrical Productions. “The Lion King and Aladdin return to Broadway in September, but these four concerts allow us to welcome fans back to Broadway even sooner and give us a chance to raise much-needed funds to support the heroic work being done by the remarkable staff at The Actors Fund. We cannot wait to return to the exhilaration of musical theatre. For the first time in forever, we actually can.”

With the health and safety of guests, cast, musicians, and crew a top priority, all guests entering the theatre for Live at the New Am will be required to provide proof of vaccination. Guests under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult.
