Beauty and the Beast Live Concert

Disney’s live-action adaptation of its animated classic Beauty and the Beast was a huge hit last year, but it didn’t satisfy all the fans out there. Some were particularly disappointed with the obviously enhanced vocal work of Harry Potter franchise star Emma Watson when singing as the charming, sharp, bookworm villager Belle.

Following previous live concert renditions of The Nightmare Before Christmas and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the Beauty and the Beast live concert features an all-star cast that will be led by (500) Days of Summer and New Girl star Zooey Deschanel. And if that wasn’t intriguing enough, the rest of the cast features an interesting assembly of talent as well. Read More »
