The TikTok community’s love for a little chef has left English theater director Lucy Moss with what you could say is a tall order.
Moss will debut “Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical,” a first-of-its kind collaboration that will test the creative possibilities of the beloved app and platform.
Moss said, “It’s very scary. It’s a lot of eyes and a lot of people who are very invested and very excited but also have a very specific vision of what this kind of event is going to be.”
Those people are the TikTok community, who saw this project go from a quaint viral effort started by a user’s Broadway-esque ode to the 2007 Disney Pixar film to a full-blown event in a matter of weeks.
Moss explains that her great challenge is to take the vision created by those who helped turn the “Ratatouille” musical into a popular trend on TikTok and turn it into a story that still feels fresh and fun to an audience who is exhausted by nearly a year’s worth of virtual concerts and events.
