The upcoming Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical concert has revealed its cast, which includes Adam Lambert. The original Pixar film released in 2007 to critical acclaim. It focuses on Remy, a rat, who wants to become a professional chef. He teams up with restaurant workers Alfredo Linguini and Colette Tatou, who help him make his dream a reality. Ratatouille won the Oscar for Best Animated Feature and was nominated for several more. Despite the film’s success, a sequel was never made.

Ratatouille saw a resurgence in popularity this year due to a fan-made musical that originated on TikTok. Several creators contributed to the project, which became a viral hit very quickly. Earlier this month, it led to the announcement of a filmed concert titled Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical, which will stream on January 1 at 7 p.m. EST via TodayTix. Proceeds from the concert will go to The Actors Fund, a charity that supports performers and those working behind-the-scenes. Now, the show’s cast has been revealed.

Per Playbill, Tituss Burgess will lead the production as Remy, with Andrew Barth Feldman taking on the role of Linguini. The rest of the star-studded cast includes Lambert as Emile, Wayne Brady as Django, Kevin Chamberlin as Gusteau, André De Shields as Ego, Priscilla Lopez as Mabel, Ashley Park as Colette, Owen Tabaka as Young Ego, and Mary Testa as Skinner. Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical will utilize music from several of the show’s TikTok stars, with Kate Leonard providing additional lyrics.

Though the impressive cast may seem surprising, Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical became a sensation virtually overnight, and it’s clear some big names are excited to celebrate it. It also provides a good opportunity to support the many young creators who had a hand in it, as well as The Actors Fund. The show will call attention to a worthy cause while also offering a much needed distraction at the start of the new year. It’s a win-win for the cast, who will also get to take part in a show like no other.

Virtual events like this one have become standard in the COVID-19 era. However, they remain an ingenious way to engage with audiences. This is especially true for the Broadway community, which has been hit especially hard by the pandemic. While the movie and TV industries have mostly returned to work, Broadway remains shut down, leaving many out of work for nearly a year. Hopefully, Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical brings some cheer while also benefitting an important cause.
