Okay, that’s weird. Pixar Ratatouille is set to make his Broadway debut thanks to a TikTok meme. Presented on New Years Day by Seaview Productions on Broadway, Ratatouille: the TikTok musical is a story of love, ambition and a chronic misuse of the word “ratatouille”. Tickets for the livestream from $ 5, and the proceeds benefit the Actors Fund.

TikTocker Em Jaccs (@e_jaccs) planted the seed for Ratatouille: a TikTok musical with a short video and a song called Ode to Rémy. The song, which is stuck in my head, was later discovered by composer and arranger Daniel Mertzlufft, who contributed a Orchestral accompaniment à la Disney to prove that a Ratatouille the music could work. The meme continued to snowball as theater kids and music fans pumped new songs into the rat-tinged miasma, often wearing costumes and playing dramatic roles.

TikTok Says Over 200 Million Users Engaged With Original Ode to Rémy, often parodying or contributing to the video using TikTok’s Duet feature. And because traditional theaters are closed, the TikTok-based system Ratatouille is technically the most popular musical of 2020. Turning the meme into a full-size production is a no-brainer, though it’s surprising to see Disney sign a fan-made musical for one of its most beloved characters. .

We don’t know who will play Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, but the producers promise the cast will involve actors from Broadway and creatives from TikTok. TikTok personalities also work behind the scenes to design the set, poster, and other elements.

Tickets for Ratatouille: the TikTok musical starting at $ 5 and are available at TodayTix. The show premieres on New Year’s Day at 7:00 p.m. EST, although you are free to purchase it and watch it on demand at any time thereafter.
