Celebrating 25 Magical Years of Disney on Broadway, a one-night-only concert benefiting Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, was presented November 4 at 8 PM at the New Amsterdam Theatre. The event, which boasted a cast of 79 performers and a 15-piece onstage orchestra, raised $570,426 for the nonprofit organization.

The evening featured music from Disney’s 25-year run on Broadway, which began with the 1993 premiere of Beauty and the Beast. The concert included songs from the Disney stage productions of Aida, Aladdin, Frozen, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Mary Poppins, Newsies, and Tarzan.

To honor the occasion, Disney alumni came out to celebrate the company’s contribution to Broadway, including Whoopi Goldberg, Gavin Creel, Norm Lewis, and more.
