The Belle we want and the one we deserve! New Girl’s Zooey Deschanel is set to play the part of Belle in a live concert of Beauty and the Beast.
The concert will be a two-night event at the gorgeous Hollywood Bowl.
“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,” Deschanel said in a statement. “I am looking forward to what I’m sure will be a magical event.”
Each evening’s performance will feature a screening of Disney’s 1991 animated classic with songs performed live by an all-star cast, including Deschanel, Kelsey Grammer as Lumiere, Taye Diggs as Gaston, funny lady Rebel Wilson as LeFou, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” star Jane Krakowski as Mrs. Potts, and “The Voice” alum Anthony Evans as Beast, who will sing “Evermore,” an original song from the 2017 live-action film.
“Beauty and the Beast Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl” will be performed on May 25 and May 26. Tickets will be available this Friday on Ticketmaster.
