Nice work, Bone Daddy! The Nightmare Before Christmas will be getting the benefit concert treatment, Deadline reports. The Tim Burton/Danny Elfman 1993 stop-motion animated flick will be featured for a one-night-only Halloween musical event. Now, Broadway talent are flocking to it like a cat to cream.
Among Broadway’s finest, there’s James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin), Adrienne Warren (Tina: The Tina Turner Musical), Danny Burstein (Moulin Rouge!) and Rob McClure (Beetlejuice). Iglehart will be presiding over the event in coordination with Burton, Elfman and Disney Music Group. The cast has been instructed to use items and clothing found around their houses and, naturally, their imaginations.
In addition to the above, other cast members include Rafael Casal (Blindspotting), Nik Walker (Ain’t Too Proud) and Lesli Margherita (Matilda). More additions are expected to be announced soon.
Now, The Nightmare Before Christmas benefit concert will be a pay-per-view event with all proceeds supporting The Actors Fund and the Lymphoma Research Foundation. You can watch the event on The Actors Fund Vimeo Channel.
