How was the idea born? 

A Time article spills the beans and recounts how the idea first blossomed when Emily Jacobsen, a 26-year-old schoolteacher from Hartsdale, NY, posted a squeaky-voiced a capella ode to Pixar character Remy the Rat to TikTok in October. The report reads: "The ballad, which Jacobsen composed while cleaning her apartment, went viral. Other users employed the platform’s “duet” feature to add new background music or melodies, choreograph dances and build panoramas of a moving stage."

Adapted by Michael Breslin and Patrick Foley, the musical was choreographed by Ellenore Scott, directed by Lucy Moss, and features music from Danny Bernstein, Gabbi Bolt, Chamberlin, RJ Christian, Nathan Fosbinder, Emily Jacobsen, Sophia James, Katie Johantgen, Daniel Mertzlufft, Alec Powell, and Blake Rouse.
