Now, the fan-inspired musical is actually happening and with lots of stars that include Wayne Brady, Tituss Burgess, Kevin Chamberlin, Tony Award winner André De Shields, Andrew Barth Feldman, Grammy Award nominee Adam Lambert, Tony winner Priscilla Lopez, Tony nominee Ashley Park, Owen Tabaka, Ashley Park and three-time Tony nominee Mary Testa.e

Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical features original songs created by musical theater lovers on TikTok and will be performed by the 20-piece Broadway Sinfonietta orchestra. Proceeds benefit The Actors Fund, which has been supporting out-of-work performers and crew since Broadway shut down in March due to the pandemic.
