‘Rogers: The Musical’ hits the Hyperion Theater stage this summer
It’s official! After much speculation, Disney has announced via social media that “Rogers: The Musical” will be coming to the Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure this summer.
“Rogers: The Musical” first got Marvel fans’ attention in the first episode of “Hawkeye” on Disney Plus – and then wowed the crowd at D23 Expo in September.
The backstory in the Disney+ series is that in 2024 “Rogers: The Musical” was produced at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City. Although all the Avengers were invited to the premiere, only Clint Barton (Hawkeye) showed up.
A one-act version of the fictional show about the first Captain America (Steve Rogers) is scheduled to run for a limited time this summer. However, with the upcoming expansion of Avengers Campus (also announced at D23 Expo), there’s hope it could stick around even longer.
The last production at the Hyperion Theater was “Frozen – Live at the Hyperion,” which debuted in 2016 and closed along with the rest of Disneyland Resort in 2020. Since then, there’s been a lot of discussion about what might take the stage in the nearly 2,000-seat Broadway-style theater in the park’s Hollywood Land, including “Encanto” (especially after the stage production of Encanto at the Hollywood Bowl) and “Hercules” (thanks to recent Disney Live Entertainment audition notices), but now we know the Avengers have earned the coveted spot.
The show’s show-stopping number “Save The City” about The Battle of New York in “The Avengers” was written by the award-winning songwriting team of Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman.
