Watch Disney on Broadway’s 25th anniversary concert online for free

Disney on Broadway’s 25th anniversary concert is being streamed online to watch for free.

The one-night-only show was originally performed in November, celebrating 25 Magical Years of Disney on Broadway.

The concert premiered online at 7PM New York time / 12AM London on Friday, April 17 to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS’ COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Fund which is helping those onstage, backstage and behind the scenes impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.

You’re able to watch the stream live in the video above and on demand for the next seven days.

The production featured a starry cast of 79 performers and a 15-piece orchestra performing some of Disney’s biggest hits from its stage shows.

Frozen’s Ryan McCartan will host the stream live from his family’s basement and will interview special Disney on Broadway stars, from their homes, throughout the evening.
