Disney’s tale as old as time is being told in a new way this spring, with Beauty and the Beast In Concert at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
The event, which takes place on May 25 and 26 at 8:15 PM, mixes film, live music, singers, and more to create a unique theatrical experience. Here’s more from director Richard Kraft:
Like our celebration of Disney’s The Little Mermaid in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, we are mixing film, live music, singers, dancers, digital projections, effects, and special guest artists to create an event that pays homage to the original movie but also delivers something that can only be experienced live. Our creative mantra for this show has been: ‘We want our audience to be our guests. We have filled up the event course by course, one by one, ‘til they shout, enough I’m done!
The star-studded cast includes the following:
- Zooey Deschanel as Belle
- Taye Diggs as Gaston
- Rebel Wilson as Lefou
- Kelsey Grammer as Lumiere
- Jane Krakowsi as Mrs. Potts
- Anthony Evans as Beast
Zooey Deschanel, best known for her role on the TV show “New Girl” and her band She & Him, is thrilled to take on the beloved role of Belle. “Performing “Beauty and the Beast,” one of my favorite movies growing up, in a special concert at the legendary Hollywood Bowl is a dream come true. I am looking forward to what I’m sure will be a magical event,” she said.
