Zooey Deschanel Is Bringing *This* Disney Princess to Life in New Musical Spectacular
A tale as old as time is coming to life with Zooey Deschanel at its center.
Today, the Hollywood Bowl announced the New Girl actress is set to star in the upcoming concert spectacular Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in Concert.
Deschanel is putting her Disney Princess chops to the test as Belle in the musical retelling of the beloved movie. Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect films) will play LeFou and said she’s “mentally preparing for the role in France by eating croissants.”
The concert, which features a full orchestra and choir, also stars Taye Diggs (Gaston), Kelsey Grammer (Lumiere), Jane Krakowski (Mrs. Potts) and Anthony Evans (the Beast).
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in Concert has two dates at the Los Angeles venue: Friday, May 25 and Saturday, May 26—both at 8:15 p.m. Pre-sale tickets will be available starting tomorrow, Tuesday, March 13, at 10 a.m. through Thursday, March 15, at 10 p.m. Standard tickets will go on sale Friday, March 16, at 10 a.m.
Zooey, we’d love to be your guest.
