Now, Disney is inviting fans of the film to be their guest this summer as they prepare to put on a live Beauty and the Beast concert featuring a celebrity-filled cast at the Hollywood Bowl, a Los Angeles-based venue.

The two-night event, taking place May 25-26, is set to have Belle played by Zooey Deschanel, who said Beauty and the Beast was one of her "favorite movies" as she grew up. Aside from Deschanel, Kelsey Grammer will be playing the role of Lumiere, Taye Diggs will play Gaston, Rebel Wilson will play LeFou, Jane Krakowski will play Mrs. Potts and The Voice alum Anthony Evans will play Beast, singing "Evermore" from the live action adaptation.
Former Frasier star Grammer, who will sing the track Be Our Guest, originally performed by late actor Jerry Orbach in the 1991 animated movie, adds, "Walking in the footsteps of such a brilliant cast is an honour; and as for singing the music of the incomparable (composer) Alan Menken - it goes without saying". This special performance is the second of its kind following the success of 2017's The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl. I'm giddy with excitement at the opportunity to finally sing the role. Now Beauty and the Beast at the Bowl is coming, with an extraordinary cast and a world class orchestra. Disney Concerts put on a similar production two years ago with The Little Mermaid Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl, which starred Wilson as Ursula and Sara Bareilles as Ariel. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster starting March 16.
