VAN: — GABRIELLA: WELCOME BACK. WELL, WE ARE LOOKING AHEAD, ON ARTS AVENUE, THIS HOLIDAY SEASON, SKYLIGHT MUSIC THEATER IN MILWAUKEE IS BRINGING THE HOLLY JOLLY GOOD TIME WITH A CONCERT FULL OF DISNEY’S BIGGEST BROADWAY HITS. JOINING ME NOW IS THE THEATER’S ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, MICHAEL UNGER. THANK YOU SO MUCH, MICHAEL, FOR COMING IN THIS MORNING. MICHAEL: GREAT TO BE BACK. GABRIELLA: YOU WERE TELLING ME YESTERDAY WAS THE OPENING NIGHT FOR THE SHOW. MICHAEL: LAST NIGHT, YEAH, WE JUST OPENED. IT IS AN AMAZING, TALENTED GROUP OF PEOPLE ON OUR STAGE, ADULTS AS WELL AS SOME YOUNG KIDS. I KNEW PEOPLE WOULD LOVE THE SONGS FROM THE SHOW, BUT I HAD NO IDEA EVERY SINGLE SONG WOULD GET A REACTION FROM THE AUDIENCE, LIKE IT WAS THE LAST SONG, I MEAN HIT AFTER HIT. THE KIDS WERE ADORABLE. IT WAS EXCITING. GABRIELLA: I LOVE TO HEAR IT. TELL ME MORE ABOUT THE MUSIC OR THE SONGS THAT PEOPLE CAN KIND OF EXPECT TO HEAR. MICHAEL: IF YOU LOVE DISNEY SOUNDS AND YOU LOVE GREAT SINGING, YOU WILL LOVE THE SHOW. SO THERE ARE 33 SONGS FROM — THIS IS DISNEY’S BROADWAY CATALOG, SO FROM “FROZEN,” “LION KING,” “A PART OF YOUR WORLD,” “ALADDIN,” “BEAUTY AND THE BEAST,” “JUNGLE BOOK,” I MEAN, EVERY SINGLE HIT SONG FROM DISNEY’S BROADWAY SHOWS. GABRIELLA: THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS VERY UNIQUE TO SKY WHAT — TO SKYLIGHT THEATRE. MICHAEL: IT IS TRUE. WE ARE THE ONLY SHOW IN THE WORLD PRODUCING THIS SHOW RIGHT NOW. I WORKED WITH DISNEY DIRECTLY TO ADD KIDS TO THE SHOW. WE ADDED 12 KIDS AND TWO DIFFERENT CAST OF SIX. WE WORKED DIRECTLY WITH DISNEY. IF WE DO CHANGE, EVEN A COMMA, IT HAD TO BE APPROVED BY DISNEY. I LOVE THAT RESTRICTION, BECAUSE THEY ARE SO WISELY CAREFUL ABOUT THE PROPERTIES, AND THEY WERE EXCITED ABOUT ADDING KIDS TO THE SHOW. YOU CAN SEE THE VIDEOS, THE SET IS SO BEAUTIFUL, YOU ARE LIKE IN SKYLIGHT’S LIVING ROOM. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL DESIGN, A BEAUTIFUL PRODUCTION. THE CHOREOGRAPHY IS REALLY EXCITING. IT IS FULL OF HITS. GABRIELLA: I LOVE IT. IT IS SOMETHING THAT EVERYONE FROM ALL AGES CAN COME OUT AND ENJOY AND, YOU KNOW, FEEL A LITTLE NOSTALGIA WITH IT AS WELL. MICHAEL: IT CROSSES ALL GENERATIONS. IT IS CALLED “A JOLLY HOLIDAY,” BUT IT IS REALLY NAMED AFTER THE BRITISH USE OF THE WORD, WHICH MEANS VACATION. DISNEY WAS TRYING TO FIND A WAY TO CREATE A HOLIDAY SHOW, AND THERE ARE NO HOLIDAY SONGS, PER SE, IN DISNEY’S CATALOG, BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER, BECAUSE WHATEVER HOLIDAY YOU ARE CELEBRITY OR NOT A LIBERTY, THIS IS A GREAT SHOW .
