The so-called Ratatouille musical — centered on the 2007 Disney / Pixar film — has been percolating around the past several months on TikTok. What began as a one-off bit has slowly snowballed into a significant endeavor, with bored Broadway followers, composers, established designers, costume makers, choreographers, and much more performing with each other to create bits and items of the (right up until now) fictional exhibit.
There are not quite a few aspects still on what the precise clearly show will appear like, even though the musical promises to “celebrate the delectable group-sourced creation by supplying it the comprehensive significant-kicking, lip-smacking Broadway therapy.” Just what that signifies in phrases of the scope of the display is, as of yet, unclear.

Several of the viral TikTok stars that have served contribute to the crowdsourced demonstrate in the previous couple of months are included in the creation, also.
