TikTok Made a Broadway ‘Ratatouille’ Musical Happen on New Year’s Day

Ratatouille: The TikTok MusicalTwitter

TikTok really had its moment in 2020. We were all stuck in our homes, clicking through video after video just to laugh during that trash-heap of a year. Out of those many hours of collective time we all spent on TikTok, came something beautiful (besides all those takes on the “Four Seasons Total Landscaping” blunder): a Ratatouille musical.

As BuzzFeed reports, a Hartsdale, New York, woman Emily Jacobsen started singing a song about Remy, the Ratatouille rat.

“While cleaning up around the apartment, I started singing this little song to myself about the main character Remy…and as the day went on, I could not get it out of my head,” she told BuzzFeed. It went: “Reeeeeeemy the Ratatouille, the rat of all my dreams.”

From there, things really took off. Basically, Jacobsen posted this video just to share a giggle with the internet. But she seemed to underestimate how hungry musical theater nerds, deprived of Broadway shows for several months, would be for a brand-new musical creation. Thus began the push to make Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical.

On the evening of January 1, 2021, the musical premiered TodayTix.com as a benefit concert for The Actors Fund, which is supporting actors who are not able to work during the global pandemic.

The full cast was: Wayne Brady (Django), Tituss Burgess (Remy), Kevin Chamberlin (Gusteau), Tony Award winner André De Shields (Ego), Andrew Barth Feldman (Linguini), Grammy Award nominee Adam Lambert (Emile), Tony winner Priscilla Lopez (Mabel), Tony nominee Ashley Park (Colette), Owen Tabaka (Young Ego), and three-time Tony nominee Mary Testa (Skinner). Cori Jaskier, Talia Suskauer, Nikisha Williams, JJ Niemann, John Michael Lyles, Raymond J. Lee, and Joy Woods were the ensemble.

The orchestra was The Broadway Sinfonietta, an ensemble of female BIPOC musicians.

Thank you, 2020 (can’t believe I’m saying that) for manifesting this glorious moment on the first day of 2021.

You can start your cool T-shirt design for free using either Canva or Placeit or even Envato Elelements. Alternatively, if you prefer using a stand alone software you can download to your computer without eating up your wallet, then, my favorite is Art Text Design for Mac, though you may still use softwares like WordArt or simply check out Envato Marketplace for some cool and affordable products that may be used for the same purpose. You may also use free print-on-demand websites like Teepublic to sell items with your artwork designs printed on them and make some cool money from that.
