With Disney princess performers like Susan Egan, Anneliese van der Pol, Syndee Winters, and Courtney Reed, it seems like Disney Princess – The Concert would have been a slam dunk with Disney fans. However, reviews on the Princess Blog suggest otherwise! Although the talented women singing in the concert are renowned singers and concert attendees praised their talents, it seems that several other logistical factors have made the show a little underwhelming.
The Disney concert is hosted by Benjamin Rauhala and features women who have played Disney princesses or Disney heroines on stage. The main players are Susan Egan, Anneliese van der Pol, Courtney Reed, and Aisha Jackson. All four women have played an official Disney princess.
Susan Egan is known for playing Belle in the original Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast as well as voicing the popular Hercules character Megara, while Anneliese van der Pol is known for playing Chelsea Daniels on the Disney Channel show That’s So Raven and was also the last actress to play Belle in the same stage musical. Courtney Reed originated the role of Princess Jasmine in Broadway’s Aladdin, and Aisha Jackson was the first Black woman to play Anna in Frozen on Broadway.
