The tale as old as time is being spun as soon as again, this time as a live performance at the Hollywood Bowl with Zooey Deschanel playing Belle.
Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert is an unique two-night occasion happening this May, with an all-star cast put together to carry out the movie’s traditional tunes. That cast consists of Zooey Deschanel as Belle, Kelsey Grammer as Lumiere, Taye Diggs as Gaston, Rebel Wilson as LeFou, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s Jane Krakowski as Mrs. Potts, and The Voice alum Anthony Evans as Beast (singing “Evermore,” an initial tune from the live-action variation of the movie).
“I love this film, I love Alan Menken, and I loved Jerry Orbach — the title song, as sung by Angela Lansbury, makes me cry to this day,” Grammer stated in a declaration about signing up with the performance experience. “Walking in the footsteps of such a brilliant cast is an honor; and as for singing the music of the incomparable Alan Menken, it goes without saying.”
The occasion follows Disney Concerts’ 2016 production of The Little Mermaid Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which included Wilson as Ursula and Sara Bareilles as Ariel. Richard Kraft, who directed that performance and will return for Beauty and the Beast, stated in a release, “Like our event of Disney’s The Little Mermaid in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, we are blending movie, live music, vocalists, dancers, digital forecasts, impacts, and unique visitor artists to develop an occasion that admires the initial motion picture however likewise provides something that can just be knowledgeable live.”
