'Ratatouille' TikTok musical announces star-studded cast including Tituss Burgess, Adam Lambert

TikTok’s “Ratatouille” musical event announced its star-studded cast for a benefit concert that will feature content created by and selected from TikTokers.

“Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical” – fondly nicknamed the “Ratatousical” – will begin streaming on Friday for 72 hours. Tickets are on sale exclusively on TodayTix.com and are $ 5. Proceeds will benefit The Actors Fund, which aids entertainment industry workers.

On Monday, roles were announced for talents such as Tituss Burgess, Adam Lambert, Wayne Brady, André De Shields and Ashley Park.

It is the product of several minds – many musical theater fans and out-of-work performers – who collaborated on original songs, lyrics and ideas to turn an animated, non-musical film into a two-act Broadway-style show.

‘HAMILTON’ COULD BE THE FIRST SHOW TO REOPEN BROADWAY: REPORT

The story for both film and musical centers on Remy, an ambitious rat who dreams of becoming a Parisian chef. Burgess will play Remy, Lambert plays his older brother, Emile, and Brady plays his father. Tony Award winner De Shields plays food critic Anton Ego, Kevin Chamberlin plays the great chef Gusteau and Andrew Barth Feldman plays Gusteau’s “nephew” Linguini.

The attraction, inspired by the Disney movie "Ratatouille," is a dark ride that takes the "comical, rat's eye view" of Remy's world.

FAUCI ESTIMATES WHEN IT COULD BE SAFE TO SEE BROADWAY SHOW

Other cast members will be Tony winner Priscilla Lopez, Tony nominee Ashley Park, Owen Tabaka and three-time Tony nominee Mary Testa. The show will be performed with the 20-piece Broadway Sinfonietta orchestra.

The musical — based on the 2007 Disney/Pixar film — has been percolating over the past several months on TikTok and many of that social media platform’s viral stars who helped contribute to the show are involved in the production.

Both Emily Jacobsen, who wrote the original “Remy the Ratatouille” song for TikTok, and composer Daniel Mertzlufft, whose arrangement of that song helped kickstart the online effort, are being given writing credit, as is Blake Rouse, who wrote two of the more popular songs on TikTok, “The Rat’s Way of Life” and “Ratatouille Tango.”
