Video: Alan Menken’s epic medley will blow your mind (all his hits in 10 mins)

Earlier this week, a small group of entertainment journalists were invited to take part in a closed question and answer session with legendary composer Alan Menken. Held ahead of Aladdin’s Melbourne opening night, we took the opportunity to ask Menken questions about his various successful collaborations with Disney and the future of his work in a relaxed environment.

This interview will be available to read on AussieTheatre over the coming weekend, but for now, we have a special treat to share… A medley of Menken’s hits, performed by the man himself to kick off the Q and A session.

Watching Alan Menken condensing his songbook into a ten minute career retrospective will forever be a highlight of my life, please watch the video below and sing along to the songs that represent a generations’ childhood.

Maddi is a performer who has been too scared to stand in the spotlight for the last few years, so she channels her need for love and appreciation into writing about the theatre instead. An energetic consumer of musical theatre, she is currently earning a degree in journalism and teaches voice in her small hometown. Maddi is normally covered in cat fur, has an opinion on everything, and in the words of Lin-Manuel Miranda, is not throwing away her shot.
