“I know now not anyone can cook, but a great cook can come from anywhere.”

I was hoping that 2021 was going to get off on the right foot, then I watched the RATATOUILLE musical. The Anton Ego food critic inside of me wants to send this musical back to the kitchen.

It’s much more enjoyable to watch the #ratatouillemusical videos on TikTok, where the songs truly sing. Instead, Wayne Brady, Tituss Burgess and Tony winning André De Shields perform a mediocre Zoom table read.

I know now not anyone can make a bad musical, but a bad musical can come from great TikTok’s anywhere.

It is available for a limited time on Todaytix for a $5 donation.
