'Disney Princess -- The Concert' to play Rosemont in March 2022
"Disney Princess -- The Concert" is coming to the Rosemont Theatre next year.
The Rosemont show date is 7:30 p.m. Saturday, March 19, and tickets officially go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, May 7.
"Disney Princess" is inspired by the "Broadway Princess Party." It started in 2015 as a cabaret act featuring original Broadway stars of animated film stage adaptations and other musicals with princesses.
The "Broadway Princess Party" grew to play larger venues, including several sold-out shows at Schaumburg's Improv Comedy Showcase in 2018.
But now as a Disney Concerts presentation, the "Disney Princess" expands to feature more than 30 songs, plus stories and lots of projected animated sequences.
The 85-city "Disney Princess" concert tour launches in Georgia in November, and is set to feature Tony Award-nominee Susan Egan ("Beauty and the Beast," "Hercules").
Other stars joining the tour in February include Elgin native Courtney Reed (Jasmine in "Aladdin" on Broadway), plus the original Broadway "Anastasia" Christy Altomare (Guenevere in the 2014 run of "Camelot" at Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace).
