“Storyteller” type, one-man show with eight-time Academy Award-winner Alan Menken

Alan Menken, eight-time Oscar-winner and recipient of more Tony Awards than any other living individual, leads audiences through the stories behind over thirty years of hit songs, movies, and musicals. In this, his first one-man show, the legendary storyteller sings some of his best-loved tunes while accompanying himself on the piano, sharing the secrets of his journey from “Sesame Street” to premiering three simultaneous shows on Broadway. Supported by Black Ink’s staging and production design with contributions from Derek McLane, “A Whole New World of Alan Menken” debuted on September 30, 2016 at Orange County’s Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa and has since gone on to Headline the Disney D23 Conventions in Anaheim and Tokyo in 2017 & 2018 respectively.

“You have to hand it to a man that has written such memorable songs… The audience was understandably entranced… An absolute delight!”

Black Ink Presents is proud to provide Technical Design and Direction to this touring program.
