Rogers: The Musical from the Disney+ Hawkeye series is coming to Disney Land this summer.
Marvel fans who watched the Hawkeye series on Disney+ no doubt had a laugh at the appearance of Rogers: The Musical in the first episode. The over-the-top Broadway performance that Clint Barton attended serves as a hilarious insight as to how pop culture would respond to the Avengers in-universe — but despite Barton’s obvious contempt for the show, it left many fans wondering what a fully-realized Avengers musical would look like. Disney has capitalized on this and will release a real-life one-act version of Rogers: The Musical on June 30.
Thanks to the efforts of playwright Hunter Bell, the 30-minute Marvel musical will portray a weirdly upbeat version of Captain America’s life, from his origins during World War II to his time fighting alongside the Avengers. The show will feature the song “Save the City,” seen in Hawkeye, along with “Star Spangled Man,” which was featured in the original Captain America: The First Avenger.
There will be five other show tunes as well, with original music by The Boys and Mass Effect composer Christopher Lennertz.
The musical will premiere at Hyperion Theater in Disney California Adventure’s Hollywood Land, located just north of the theme park’s Avenger’s Campus. After its June 30 premiere, there will be three performances each day from Tuesday through Saturday until its final scheduled performance on August 2.
Marvel fans who want to catch Rogers: The Musical before its closure might be able to make it in just by standing in line before the next performance. However, seats are given on a first-come, first-served basis, so Disney suggests that patrons use its “virtual queue” using the official Disneyland App. Unfortunately, those using the virtual queue won’t be able to decide which showing they get to attend — they have to attend whatever showing Disney assigns to them.
Marvel fans with cash to spare can also guarantee a seat by purchasing the so-called “Rogers: The Musical Premium Viewing Experience.” By paying $29 at Studio Catering Co. inside Hollywood Land, guests receive first access to the theater for seat selections. The Premium Viewing Experience will also give patrons access to a lounge area in front of the theater, a souvenir popcorn bucket with red, white, and blue kettle corn, and a drink.
The Marvel-themed musical is the first show to be performed in the Hyperion Theater since it closed for the pandemic on March 14, 2020. Before closing, the 1,984-seat theater had presented an abridged version of the 2013 film Frozen called Frozen – Live at the Hyperion. The 55-minute musical stage show ran for four years, featuring fan-favorite songs such as In Summer and Let It Go.
Before the Frozen show, the Hyperion Theater hosted the 45-minute show Disney’s Aladdin: A Musical, which ran from 2003 until 2016. Before that, a 30-minute tribute to the Broadway show Blast, titled The Power of Blast, ran from 2001 until 2002 — a show that replaced the poorly-received show Step in Time after its eight-month run.
If the Marvel-themed Rogers: The Musical truly disappears from the park in August, that will make it the shortest-run show ever to grace the Hyperion Theater stage.
