Backed by a six-piece band led by Jim Abbott, the group will celebrate Disney Theatrical Productions’ catalog of Broadway musicals, from 1994’s Beauty and the Beast to the latest: Frozen, which continues its run at the St. James Theatre.

Also at the Expo will be the premiere of a new virtual reality experience, allowing participants to take center stage (digitally) in numbers from Disney’s three current Broadway titles: Aladdin, Frozen, and The Lion King.
