Zooey Deschanel And Rebel Wilson

Only this time, everyone's favorite book worm is coming to life through a live-to-film concert at the Hollywood Bowl rather than in a live-action movie with semi-disturbing CGI.

Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert is a special two-night event taking place this May, with an all-star cast assembled to perform the film's classic tunes.

Featuring alongside Deschanel will be Kelsey Grammer (X-Men: The Last Stand) performing "Be Our Guest" as Lumiere, Taye Diggs (Chicago) as Gaston, Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect 3) as LeFou, Jane Krakowski (The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) performing the titular "Beauty and the Beast" as Mrs. Potts, and Anthony Evans as Beast performing "Evermore", the original song crafted for Disney's 2017 live-action re-imagining.

The event will combine images from the film along with live music, singers, dancers, and projections, sure to honor the spirit of the film in a memorable, original way.

The title song, originally sung by Angela Lansbury, makes Grammer cry.

Apple opens WWDC 2018 registration: June 4-8 in San Jose
This marks the second year in a row WWDC has been held in the South Bay, after a long run at San Francisco's Moscone Center. Apple is planning to return to San Jose again in 2018, between June 4th and June 8th this time around.

The evening will also involve "breathtaking living scenery" being projected onto the iconic Hollywood Bowl facade, to create an immersive "Beauty and the Beast experience". I'm giddy with excitement at the opportunity to finally sing the role. I've seen the Broadway production more than once and have harbored jealousy of every actor who has ever played Gaston every time I've been in that theater.

"The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl was an unbelievable and unforgettable event", said Menken. Naturally, he said, "We want our audience to be our guests". If you buy something featured, we may earn an affiliate commission which helps support our work.
