"When You Wish: The Story of Walt Disney" is plauying May 18 through June 12, 2016, at Phoenix Theatre.

The life of Walt Disney wasn’t necessarily enchanted, even though the entertainment he’s most identified with — like animated movies and fairy tales — made it seem that way.

The PBS series "American Masters" recently dug deeply into Disney and what made him tick, and now, in a world premiere musical called "When You Wish: The Story of Walt Disney," Phoenix Theatre presents its take on Disney.

We talked about the musical with director Larry Raben.
