Frozen star Jelani Alladin will play Hercules in the upcoming musical adaptation of the Disney animated film at the Public Theater’s Delacorte Theater in Central Park this summer. Joining him in the Public Works presentation will be Spring Awakening's Krysta Rodriguez as Meg, Roger Bart (who voiced the title role in the film) as Hades, Aladdin's James Monroe Iglehart as Phil, and Tamika Lawrence (Come from Away) as the lead muse, Calliope.
Directed by Lear deBessonet with choreography by Chase Brock, Hercules will play a free run August 31–September 8. As with previous Public Works shows, performances will feature professional actors with over 200 New Yorkers from all five boroughs.
