The production, which is a by-product of a TikTok trend from last fall, premiered on Friday starring Tituss Burgess as Remy, Andrew Barth Feldman as Linguini, Kevin Chamberlin as Gusteau, Adam Lambert as Emile, AndrĂ© De Shields as Ego and Ashley Park as Colette among other notable talents. The virtual pre-filmed show was organized by Seaview Productions. The proceeds from ticket sales go to the Actors Fund, which supports entertainment professionals. According to The Hollywood ReporterThe musical raised over $ 1 million on January 2.

The official Twitter of Ratatouille: The TikTok Musical also shared the news, saying, “You did it! You raised over $ 1 million to support @TheActorsFund! But we’re not done yet.
