Debutter a New York il 31 agosto 2019 il musical Hercules, ispirato all'omonimo film d'animazione.

* Le musiche e canzoni saranno sempre di Alan Menken e David Zippel.
* Per il ruolo di Ercole si pensa ad un attore di colore.
* Al momento come per il Gobbo di Notre Dame non previsto uno spettacolo a Broadway. Potrebbe per arrivare. Anche Aladdin, ad esempio, non nato come musical per Broadway ma dato il successo poi stato portato.
* Le ultime notizie indicano Jelani Alladin (che interpreta Kristoff in Frozen, il musical di Broadway) e Ashley Park sono in lizza per i ruoli di Ercole e Megara.

HERCULES STAGE MUSICAL COMING TO NEW YORK CITY THIS SUMMER

This summer, Hercules will once again go the distancebut this time, our hero will go from Mount Olympus to New York City! Today, The Public Theater announced it is bringing Hercules to the stage, continuing its 57-year tradition of offering free performances in Central Park. Part of Shakespeare in the Park, Public Works new adaptation will close out the 2019 season.

The stage show, presented by special arrangement with Disney Theatrical Productions, under the direction of Thomas Schumacher, will feature songs from the beloved animated classic, as well as new musical numbers by Disney Legend Alan Menken and David Zippel; it will also include a new book by Kristoffer Diaz and original choreography by Chase Brock. Directed by Public Works Founder Lear deBessonet, the Hercules musical will run August 31 through September 8.

We are thrilled to welcome Lear deBessonet back at the helm of our Public Works initiative for the first time since 2015, said Oskar Eustis, artistic director, The Public Theater. Alan Menken is one of the great musical geniuses of our time; it is an honor to welcome him, David Zippel, and Kristoffer Diaz to the Delacorte. Our Public Works community promises to connect this brilliantly conceived story back to the earth from which it sprang: the people. What a grand and unlikely experience this will be!

Many generations of our Public Works families have embraced Disney musicals as a shared American canon, said deBessonet. Hercules roots in Greek mythology, infused with soulful gospel music, make it a natural extension of Public Works radical exploration of humanity through Shakespeare and the classics. Were excited to see how this Public Works production will uncover the deeper meaning of what it means to be a hero and how true strength is derived, not from the greatness of one person, but the transformative power of community.

Based on Disneys Oscar-nominated 1997 film, directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the stage production has also recruited scenic designer Dane Laffrey; costume designer Andrea Hood; lighting designer Tyler Micoleau; sound designers Kai Harada and Jessica Paz; wigs, hair, and makeup designer Cookie Jordan; and music arranger and supervisor Michael Kosarin.

If a trip to New York City is on your agenda this summer, visit PublicTheater.org for more details and ticketing information.

Breaking: Bless My Soul! Public Theater Will Stage HERCULES at the Delacorte Theatre This Summer

Hercules is about to go from zero to hero of your 2019.

BroadwayWorld has just learned that The Public Theater will present a stage adaptation of the Disney classic this summer at the Delacorte Theatre. The musical, which features music by Alan Menken, lyrics by David Zippel and a book by Kristoffer Diaz, will be directed by Lear deBessonet and choreographed by Chase Brock.

The Public Works production is set to begin performances on August 30 and will run through September 8. A reading is set to take place this April.

According to a casting notice, the role of Hercules will be played by an African American actor.

Hercules is a 1997 American animated musical fantasy comedy film produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation for Walt Disney Pictures. The 35th Disney animated feature film and the eighth animated film produced during the Disney Renaissance, the film was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. The film is loosely based on the legendary hero Heracles (known in the film by his Roman name, Hercules), the son of Zeus, in Greek mythology.

Hercules was released on June 27, 1997 to positive reviews from film reviewers who praised James Woods's portrayal of Hades. Despite the positive critical reception, the film under-performed in its theatrical release notably in comparison to its predecessors before ultimately earning $252.7 million in box office revenue worldwide. Hercules was later followed by the direct-to-video prequel Hercules: Zero to Hero, which served as the pilot to Hercules: The Animated Series, a syndicated Disney TV series focusing on Hercules during his time at the Prometheus academy.

PUBLIC WORKS is a major initiative of The Public Theater that seeks to engage the people of New York by making them creators and not just spectators. Working with community partner organizations in all five boroughs, Public Works invites members of diverse communities to participate in theater workshops, to attend classes, to attend productions, and to become involved in the daily life of The Public. Founded by Resident Director Lear deBessonet, Public Works deliberately blurs the line between professional artists and community members, creating theater that is not only for the people, but by and of the people as well.

ON BRINGING HERCULES TO THE STAGE

Lear DeBessonet is such a gifted, gifted director. She went to see Alan Menken at his studio upstate, and she said, What are you doing with Hercules? Then she took it to Oskar Eustis. We all came and met, and the Public said, We would like to do this. Weve done a couple of readings of it. Alan Menken and David Zippel, who did the songs for the original, have come back and written new material. Its very fun, and its very emotional to be in the room with the music and see these glorious actors do it.

Dal sito Esquire una recensione sul musical Hercules:

This Live-Action Hercules Should Be the Formula For All of Disney's Future Remakes

The Public Theaters production of the animated classic is the perfect example for how reboots should be done.

This has been a tough year for Disney (not that youd know it from their profit and loss statements, of course). The House of Mouse has been pummeled by critics and fans alike for churning out a cavalcade of soulless live-action remakes, from The Lion King to Aladdin. Despite its all-star cast, The Lion King was denounced as a bland if visually stunning do-over, and Aladdin flopped critically for its plodding, charmless retelling of a larger-than-life story.

Yet over at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park, The Public Theaters Public Works Program has mounted a spirited stage production of Hercules--one that Disney should study closely as they continue barreling down the risky path of rebooting classic films from their golden age. Adapted from the beloved 1997 film by the same name, this Hercules is lively, political, and unmistakably contemporary. It retains everything viewers know and love from the original, while also introducing new material to enrich the themes and deepen the character work. With five new songs from Alan Menken and David Zippel, who wrote the music and lyrics for the film, this production rewards fans without falling into the trap of fan service, ushering the familiar story into the twenty-first century with the added intrigue of a more populated, democratic interpretation. This should be the way forward for Disneykeep the good, chuck the outdated, and lean into the themes that make these stories endure.

Keep the good, chuck the outdated, and lean into the themes that make these stories endure.

For those who miraculously dont know the story, a refresher course: Hercules is born to Zeus and Hera, king and queen of the Greek gods, then kidnapped in his infancy by minions of Hades, the god of the underworld who seeks to kill him for fear of a prophecy predicting that Hercules will thwart his plan for cosmic domination. The bumbling minions fail to kill Hercules, leaving him sapped of his immortality on a hillside, only for a kindhearted couple to find him and raise him as their own, despite his inexplicable, godlike strength. After 18 years of feeling like an outcast, Hercules discovers his true lineage, and Zeus delivers an ultimatum: Hercules can only return to Mount Olympus, the home of the gods, if he becomes a hero. With the help of Philoctetes, a world-weary, wise-cracking trainer, Hercules embarks on a storied journey to become a hero.


Jelani Alladin (best known before now as Kristoff in Broadways Frozen) stars as Herc himself, infusing the role with athleticism, humor, and a winning, boyish dorkiness. In his Hercules, we see new layers of vulnerability and interior life, as in a moment when he weeps to Phil that nobody cares about him as a personthey only want him if hes a hero. Alladins Hercules asks us to question heroism as an archetype versus a lived experience, to ask how the heroes we know through stories must have felt as they lived their trials.

Krysta Rodriguez (of Smash and Spring Awakening) is sensational as Megara, the tough-talking servant of Hades unwillingly working against Hercules. Meg has long loomed large in Disney fandom as a feminist hero, and this production smartly foregrounds that characterization while updating it for 2019s discourse. In a new song, a pants-clad Meg imagines a world without men, envisioning it as a utopia where she could do as she pleases. A dopey, lovestruck Hercules, seeking to demonstrate his feminist credentials, replies clumsily, My moms a woman. Much like Hercules, this Meg is more raw than her on-screen counterpart, as we see in her bitter tirade about the worthlessness of friendship and love, where she snarls that its best to go through life alone so as to avoid hurt and disappointment.

In the Disney film, the Greek townspeople are accessories to Hercules journey, brought into the frame only to cheer, jeer, and crack wise where appropriate. Yet in this play, over 100 New Yorkers from ages 5 to 78 appear as the townspeople, and theyre far from sidelined. When Hades releases the Titans, a mythic group of ancient gods out for blood, the townspeople say to Hercules, whos been sapped of his powers, You were there for us. Let us be there for you. In a departure from the film, which sees Hercules fight the Titans single-handedly, the play leaves him out of the fray altogether, allowing the townspeople to save the day.

In the storys familiar penultimate moment, when Hercules is invited to return to Olympus and forsake his mortal life, the play reimagines the weight of that choice by peopling the scene not just with Meg, as in the film, but with his adoptive parents and the townspeople, who have become a chosen family, of sorts. The scene juxtaposes this group against the family he was born into, who arent the warm, goofy gods you remember from the filmtheyre strict, imperious taskmasters whose affection is entirely conditional, predicated on Hercules achievements rather than his inherent worthiness of love. When Hercules chooses a mortal life with the lovely new line, To be human is divine, its as much a romantic choice as it is a personal one. Its a choice to remain with his real true friends, as he calls the townspeople, who love him for who he is, not for the deeds hes done. On this level, the play deepens the films touching resolution, allowing Hercules to choose selfhood and friendship in addition to romantic love.


The plays updates arent just thematictheyre political, too. In an early scene, after Hercules has clumsily caused a ruckus at the market in an accidental use of his superhuman strength, two armed soldiers force him to his knees and tie his hands behind his back, calling to mind our cultures rampant police brutality. Later, when Hercules arrives in Thebes, the Big Olive of Greece, to offer his help to the downtrodden townspeople, one woman cracks, Can you help me find affordable housing? Another asks that Hercules work to improve their civic discourse; still another wants him to solve income inequality. Meanwhile, shades of Donald Trump appear in Hades, who sings about the art of the deal in a new song about how no one can outsmart him. In a line that swipes at our do-gooder celebrity culture, Zeus admonishes Hercules, Youve become a celebrity. Thats not the same thing as being a hero.

Indeed this production leans hard on of-the-moment updates, but it also zeroes in on that timeless question at the storys core: what makes a hero? For this production to cast a black actor in the role of Hercules is no accident, nor is it a lark that the people of Thebes, young and old, male and female, are the ones who fight the Titans, as opposed to Hercules. Like the film, the play argues that heroism is about heart, but it expands the definition of who a hero can beit argues that heroes come in all shapes and sizes, and that heroism has as much to do with communities banding together as it does extraordinary acts by individual people.


In considering the Disney remake-aissance, its important to remember that the original films we know and love are already remakes. Disney stories dont exist in vacuumsin fact, many of them are already retellings as it is, derived from mythology, fairy tales, history, Shakespeare, and other such sources. The joy and purpose of art isnt just the making of it, but the remakingthe reimagining, the tinkering, the adapting for new cultural context. This is why we tell stories to begin withso that we may retell them, again and again.

Its no crime for Disney to recycle its beloved cultural properties, but to do so with the profound corporate soullessness of films like The Lion King and Aladdin is criminal indeed. Why does Disney insist on tying one hand behind its back, on limiting itself to shot-for-shot remakes when the rewards of reinterpretation are so much greater? Art exists in conversation, as The Publics Hercules understands, and Disney can only benefit from loosening its chokehold on the wheel. If Disney doesnt consider how these stories should live, breathe, and change for a new generation of fans, theres no telling the damage theyll do to the august reputation theyve worked so hard to build.

Up next, Disney is remaking Mulan, The Lady and the Tramp, The Little Mermaid, Snow White, The Sword in the Stone, and Lilo and Stitch. Heres hoping they think outside the box.

Il musical molto carente per quel che concerne l'aspetto visivo. Non sappiamo perch abbiano scelto quello stile minimal...
Speriamo che lo rivedano, se lo portano in giro per l'America.
Abbiamo letto recensioni MOLTO positive sullo spettacolo.

Teniamo conto per che a Broadway i twist razziali ci sono sempre stati... diverso dai film al cinema. A teatro c' sempre stata una componente nera anche per i personaggi bianchi (o viceversa). A teatro non conta l'attore ma il personaggio che interpreta o meglio l'idea del personaggio che interpreta.
tutto molto diverso dal cinema.

Comunque anche noi abbiamo trovato molto povera la messa in scena, anche se c' da dire che il musical ha riscosso successo . Certo a Broadway sarebbe molto pi curato (a meno che non usano lo stile minimal gi adottato per Aida, ma non crediamo)

si lo so, a teatro la gestione dei casting e' diversa e spesso si ricorre perfino alle audizioni al buio ma continuo a credere che bisogna essere piu' fedele cmq al personaggio che si sta impersonando se ha gia' un look preciso.
cmq boh... lo trovo scialbissimo questo hercules, quando poi il classico ha una ricchezza cromatica e ricerca stilistica molto inetressante

Dal sito Youtube:

Q: Have you been writing? What have you been doing in your downtime?

Alan Menken: It's been a great time for writing, yeah. Production stopped on the Little Mermaid movie. We recorded all the songs. I wrote four new songs with Lin-Manuel Miranda, the lyricist for Mermaid. I'm working on Disenchanted, the sequel to Enchanted. I have another Broadway show. We have Hercules. Hercules is coming to the stage. Of course, we did that in Central Park last summer. Just a whole bushel of new projects.



Alan Menken conferma che Hercules arriver nei teatri dopo la prima al Central Park la scorsa estate.


Non detto che Hercules arrivi a Broadway. Sebbene alcuni siti indichino cos, Menken ha detto che sta lavorando ad un altro spettacolo a Broadway e Hercules andr a teatro ma non ha specificato se Hercules il musical che andr a Broadway o un altro (probabilmente un altro... alcuni rumors dicevano Pocahontas o un altro non legato alla Disney)...

CITAZIONE (veu @ 23/3/2020, 22:38) *
Dal sito Youtube:

Q: Have you been writing? What have you been doing in your downtime?

Alan Menken: It's been a great time for writing, yeah. Production stopped on the Little Mermaid movie. We recorded all the songs. I wrote four new songs with Lin-Manuel Miranda, the lyricist for Mermaid. I'm working on Disenchanted, the sequel to Enchanted. I have another Broadway show. We have Hercules. Hercules is coming to the stage. Of course, we did that in Central Park last summer. Just a whole bushel of new projects.



Alan Menken conferma che Hercules arriver nei teatri dopo la prima al Central Park la scorsa estate.


Non detto che Hercules arrivi a Broadway. Sebbene alcuni siti indichino cos, Menken ha detto che sta lavorando ad un altro spettacolo a Broadway e Hercules andr a teatro ma non ha specificato se Hercules il musical che andr a Broadway o un altro (probabilmente un altro... alcuni rumors dicevano Pocahontas o un altro non legato alla Disney)...

Il musical a cui lavora Menken la versione teatrale di Una notte al museo.

Per quel che riguarda Hercules, ecco che cosa riporta Menken in un'intervista.

Da Youtube:

Q: What are you working on right now?

Alan Menken: We're working on the Broadway show or the stage show, depending where it goes to, Hercules.



Traduzione: Sta lavorando alla versione a Broadway o comunque teatrale, dipende dove sar destinata, di Hercules.

Dal sito Broadway World:

BWW Exclusive: Thomas Schumacher Reveals Next Steps for HERCULES, AIDA & More!

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, a new North American tour of Elton John and Tim Rice's Tony-winning Broadway smash Aida will premiere at Paper Mill Playhouse in 2021 before beginning a North American tour, directed by original company member Schele Williams. This will not be the same Aida of Broadway past, however.

"We're going back into it and exploring things that we would rethink today. [We want to] reinvestigate the material," Disney's Thomas Schumacher told BroadwayWorld. "All of these things that we thought we knew about Egypt and Nubia were actually wrong. What we thought we knew about the dynamic of these cultures has changed. So we're really reconstituting parts of the show."

Aida isn't the only new project on Disney's plate. While work on a musical version of The Princess Bride continues (a workshop will be held this spring), a stage version of Hercules, which premiered in summer 2019 at the Delacorte Theatre, is also an ongoing project.

"We're gonna take it to the next level," says Schumacher. "There is no intention of Broadway, but there are all of these theatres across the country that are dying for it. We've turned it into a two-act [show] and made some changes."

Schumacher also recently celebrated the release of the third edition of his book, How Does the Show Go On?. "There is an extraordinary collection of people that it takes to make a show and to make the community of a show- whether its onstage, front of house, back of house, and the people who don't even appear in the theatre, like press and marketing," he explains. "All of that was exciting to me and I wanted to make sure that the book represented all of it."



Traduzione: Hercules non verr portato a Broadway, ma sar realizzato in diversi teatri negli Stati Uniti. Verr trasformato in uno spettacolo in due atti e avr dei cambiamenti rispetto alla versione presentata a New York l'anno scorso.

Ho visto il trailer e lho trovato imbarazzante. Niente a che vedere con gli spettacoli Disney Theatrical Productions. Sembrava di vedere le prove che facevo negli hotel come animatore turistico sick.gif
