THEATER
Lea Michele to Star in "The Little Mermaid" at the Hollywood Bowl
Thingamabobs? She's got 20!

March 30, 2019

Lea Michele is quite the songstress. Of course, this is a widely known fact as we all remember her Glee days portraying theatre aficionado-turned-star Rachel Berry. Upon hearing her sing “Defying Gravity” from Wicked in one of the early episodes, we became instant lifelong stans, though Lea’s theatrical career started much earlier than that. After Glee came to an end following season six (moment of silence please), Lea went on to do much more acting, including a hit role in the series Scream Queens. But for those who have been dying to see Lea belt her face off once again, things are about to feel so much better.

Hold onto your thingamabobs because Lea is headed to the Hollywood Bowl to star as Ariel in The Little Mermaid. According to Broadway World, Lea be diving under the sea for two performances only on May 17 and 18, where she will perform some of the iconic mermaid’s most memorable songs.

Shaking? Same! But who will play Ursula, the baddest witch of the waters who steals Ariel’s voice? None other than Broadway icon Harvey Fierstein, known for his portrayal of Edna Turnblad in the original cast of Hairspray. The production will also star Cheech Marin as Chef Louis, Peter Gallagher as King Triton (hello Sandy Cohen!), Leo Gallo as Prince Eric, and Ken Page as Sebastian.

Honestly, we have so many questions: Will Lea dye her hair red? Will she move around on rollerblades like in the Broadway production? Will Harvey's version of Ursula leave our poor unfortunate souls rendered speechless? Either way, we’re so excited for this production and the many YouTube videos of Lea’s performance that we will be binge-watching for the rest of eternity.

Lea Michele sarà la Sirenetta in una produzione all'Hollywood Bowl

Lea Michele vestirà i panni della Sirenetta all'Hollywood Bowl, in due serate davvero speciali. L'occasione è il trentesimo anniversario del film d'animazione della Walt Disney. Tanti saranno i brani della storica colonna sonora, che verranno interpretati

Lea Michele sarà Ariel in una prossima produzione all’Hollywood Bowl, insieme ad Harvey Fierstein (Ursula), Peter Gallagher (Re Tritone), Leo Gallo (Eric) e altri. Il concerto prevede l’esecuzione di alcuni dei brani più famosi dello storico film d’animazione della Walt Disney: saranno, infatti, interpretati In fondo al mar (Under the Sea), Baciala (Kiss the Girl), La canzone di Ursula (Poor Unfortunate Souls) e La sirenetta (Part of Your World), così come altri pezzi del musical di Broadway.

La Sirenetta è un film così speciale e la musica è molto amata. Sono onorata di poter cantare queste canzoni senza tempo all’Hollywood Bowl, accanto a un cast di talento.
Ha dichiarato Lea, l’ex Rachel Berry di Glee. L’attrice e cantante ha debuttato a Broadway nel 1995, a otto anni, nel musical Les Misérables, impegnandosi a Broadway anche nel 1998 in Ragtime. Ha, poi, lavorato in altri musical e in televisione in alcune serie TV: le più importanti sono state Glee e Scream Queens. Lea ha, inoltre, pubblicato due album. Il suo talento come cantante sembra, quindi, ormai indiscutibile.

Le serate speciali saranno due: il 17 e il 18 maggio, in concomitanza con il trentesimo anniversario del classico Disney. Il cast eseguirà le canzoni della colonna sonora vincitrice di Oscar e Grammy, accompagnato da un’orchestra live diretta da Michael Kosarin.

Secondo Broadway World, l’evento sarà ancora più suggestivo, grazie al programma completo a tema acquatico e alle attrazioni presenti. Il pubblico sarà, inoltre, invitato a partecipare a un concorso di costumi a tema La Sirenetta.

L’Hollywood Bowl sarà trasformato per l’occasione in un paradiso sottomarino, per rendere l’evento un’estensione del film d’animazione e della colonna sonora: per il pubblico, sarà un’esperienza immersiva. La Sirenetta sarà diretta da Richard Kraft e prodotta da Laura Engel & Kraft, in associazione con Disney Concerts.

Una serata all’Hollywood Bowl mi ha sempre ricordato la notte perfetta da passare in un classico drive-in. Sarà una serata da passare fuori con famiglia e amici, godendo di un’esperienza comune.

“The Little Mermaid”, concerto live-to-film per festeggiare i 30 anni del classico Disney

Il classico film Disney “The Little Mermaid” (“La Sirenetta”) festeggia con due serate speciali il suo 30 ° anniversario. Il film completo verrà proiettato all’Hollywood Bowl – il 17 e 18 maggio – durante un coinvolgente concerto live-to-film che vedrà un cast di attori famosi tra cui Lea Michele (Ariel), Harvey Fierstein (Ursula), Cheech Marin (Chef Louis), Peter Gallagher (King Triton), Leo Gallo (Prince Eric), Ken Page (Sebastian) e l’ospite speciale Alan Menken, che eseguirà i brani vincitori del Premio Oscar® e del Grammy®, accompagnato da un’orchestra dal vivo.

Oltre ai celebri numeri musicali tra cui “Under the Sea”, “Kiss the Girl”, “Poor Unfortunate Souls” e “Part of Your World”, verranno eseguiti anche i brani tratti dal Musical di Broadway “The Little Mermaid”.

Per rendere l’evento ancora più coinvolgente (e sottomarino), il noto anfiteatro di Los Angeles, verrà trasformato nell’Hollywood Fish Bowl Dive-In Theatre per una notte magica sotto le stelle e “in fondo al mar”.
Inoltre, il pluripremiato studio creativo Mousetrappe tornerà a sfruttare la tecnologia di proiezione in video mapping all’avanguardia per progettare un paesaggio vivente e mozzafiato sulla facciata della Hollywood Bowl, rendendo l’evento un’estensione in continua evoluzione del film e della musica.

Il concerto sarà diretto da Richard Kraft ed è prodotto da Laura Engel e Richard Kraft, Columbia Artists/Tim Fox e Alison Ahart Williams, e Live Nation/Andrew Hewitt e Bill Silva Presents, in collaborazione con Disney Concerts, il team che ha dato vita a numerosi concerti live-to-film molto acclamati tra cui “Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in Concert” con Zooey Deschanel e Kelsey Grammer e “Disney’s The Nightmare Before Christmas” con Danny Elfman e Catherine O’Hara.

“La Sirenetta” (“The Little Mermaid”) è un film d’animazione prodotto da Walt Disney Feature Animation e diretto da Ron Clements e John Musker, basato sull’omonima fiaba di Hans Christian Andersen. La versione originale si avvale delle voci di Jodi Benson, Pat Carroll, Samuel Wright, Christopher Daniel Barnes, Kenneth Mars, Buddy Hackett, Jason Marin e René Auberjonois.
Il lungometraggio uscì nelle sale il 14 novembre 1989, ed è il 28º Classico Disney. Nel corso della sua prima distribuzione, incassò 84 milioni di dollari nel Nord America, e fino ad oggi ha raggiunto un incasso totale di 211 milioni di dollari.
Dopo il successo del film Disney/Amblin del 1988 “Chi ha incastrato Roger Rabbit”, a “La Sirenetta” è stato dato il merito di aver infuso nuova vita all’arte dei film d’animazione Disney, dopo una serie di fallimenti critici o commerciali prodotti dalla Disney fin dai primi anni settanta. Diede anche inizio all’era nota come il Rinascimento Disney.

L’adattamento teatrale del film con un libretto di Doug Wright e altre canzoni di Alan Menken e il nuovo paroliere Glenn Slater esordì a Denver nel luglio 2007 e iniziò le esibizioni a Broadway il 10 gennaio 2008.

Da Variety:

‘Little Mermaid’ Swims Back Into Hollywood Fishbowl for a Live-Sung Screening
Lea Michele and Harvey Fierstein join Richard Kraft's updated show.

It was November 17, 1989 when “The Little Mermaid” splashed into theaters. Its arrival loosed a Disney animation tsunami through the 1990s, resulting in a series of beloved films that are now experiencing a lucrative second life with live-action remakes like “Beauty and the Beast” and this month’s “Aladdin.”

“Mermaid” started it all, a lush underwater fantasia that harkened back to Walt Disney’s animated glory days, but — crucially — armed with a catchy, romantic Broadway score by two musicians with the Midas touch: lyricist Howard Ashman and composer Alan Menken. They gave us instant classics like “Under the Sea” and “Part of Your World,” and the music won two Oscars.

The film, and Ashman and Menken’s score, will have a special 30th birthday party this weekend at the Hollywood Bowl, in a lavish projection-production with a live orchestra and songs performed by a cast that includes Lea Michele as Ariel, Harvey Fierstein as Ursula and Cheech Marin as Chef Louis.

It’s the brainchild of director Richard Kraft, who has brought similar spectacles to the Bowl in recent years, from the biannual “The Nightmare Before Christmas” with Danny Elfman to “La La Land” to “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.” This is the second time he’s brought “Mermaid” to the venue, after a 2016 production that alternated the original voice of Ariel, Jodi Benson, with Sara Bareilles in the lead role, while also featuring Rebel Wilson as Ursula and John Stamos as Louis.

Besides the cast, the big difference this year is that, in the interim, Kraft started working with the Burbank studio Mousetrappe, who developed a way to map custom animated projections onto the Bowl’s shell.

“I love Disney theme parks so much,” says Kraft. “I love how they do projection shows on their castles, and they take an iconic piece of Disneyland and use it as a canvas to put images on, and storytelling via projections. The Hollywood Bowl is this incredibly iconic structure — it’s the castle of Hollywood — and [we’re] using it as a surface to enhance the movie and make it a more immersive experience.”

The conceit for this year’s “Mermaid” is a night at a drive-in theater, cashing in on the similarities. “It’s a communal experience, outdoors, under the stars, watching a movie,” Kraft says. “There’s also a historic, retro quality of being at the Bowl that’s the same as being at a drive-in. But because this is ‘The Little Mermaid,’ Ursula is going to transform all of it into the Hollywood (Fish)Bowl Dive-In Movie Theater” — meaning that, before and throughout the movie, there will be aquatic-themed versions of movie trailers, concession ads and the like.

Kraft, who by day is a film music agent representing the likes of Elfman and Menken, started producing and directing these shows as a midlife lark, largely inspired by a lifelong obsession with all things Disney. Taking a page out of the company’s theme park M.O., it’s not enough anymore for him to simply screen a movie and have a live orchestra playing the score, a type of event that’s become hugely popular at the Bowl and in symphony halls around the world.


“It’s not just, you’re sitting in a chair and when it’s ready they fire up a movie,” he says. “It’s setting a stage, and immersing the audience into an evening that’s about something of which celebrates the movie ‘The Little Mermaid.’ [Which is] 30 years old, and I suspect most of the audience has already seen it. So why are we doing this at the Hollywood Bowl? And that’s what’s exciting: it isn’t just a live-to-film with an orchestra. It isn’t just a movie night. It isn’t just a concert. It isn’t just a stage production. It’s this hybrid, where the closest I can call it is an ‘experience.’”

With each project, Kraft and Mousetrappe have become more ambitious with the animation on the Bowl’s shell. Rather than repeating characters already on screen, Kraft calls it “living scenery” that can reveal unseen aspects of the story. For example, Ursula’s big number, “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” will be attended by German expressionism — “because the song that Alan Menken and Howard Ashman wrote was very Kurt Weill,” Kraft says. “It’s like, oh, well, Ursula is a singer in a German cabaret, and the visual influences pull from imagery suggested by German masters as well as Salvador Dali. I think Ursula would collect Dali.”

For Chef Louis’ song, “Les Poissons,” Marin will be surrounded by animation inspired by Kraft’s realization that, basically, the character is “an aquatic serial killer. So the visual was referencing like a Tex Avery cartoon — big, bold colors — of what would be inside the mind of a homicidal French chef who loves destroying crustaceans. So it is insane. Because if you think about it, filleting fish is not that far removed from ‘Silence of the Lambs.’”

Disney has to okay all such flights of fancy, but Kraft says that, because he’s such an uber-fan and now has several of these productions under his belt, he knows what not to do.

His only fear is that “I murder something because I’m giving it such a big, loving hug,” he says — “that I’m a clumsy galoot who kills it. And, so far, I don’t think I’ve smothered any of my favorite things with too much love. But maybe one day I shall…”

Menken, who is scoring Disney’s upcoming Rob Marshall-directed remake of “The Little Mermaid” — and is about to start writing new songs with Lin-Manuel Miranda — will appear at the piano for an encore. He’ll be flying in that day from a press junket in Japan to promote the new “Aladdin,” directed by Guy Ritchie, which he scored and also penned new songs for with “La La Land” lyricists Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

“It was a real reminder,” Kraft says, “that everything Alan touches ends up having so many children and grandchildren. We’re talking about ‘Little Mermaid’ and ‘Aladdin,’ and it’s like I have to remember: are we talking about the original movie, or are we talking about the Broadway show, or are we talking about the touring show, are we talking about the concert, or are we talking about the live-action remake?”

As for live-to-picture events, Kraft wants to keep making them even crazier.

“I think we’re in a new era where [you think about] what does it mean to go see a movie, and what does it mean to have a concert experience of a film?” he says. “The boundaries of it just keep exploding. A few years ago it was just enough to go see a movie and hear the orchestra playing it live. But I think many people, of which I’m just one of them, are now going: No, this is its own art form, and how far can we take it?”

Da LaughinPlace:

Review: “The Little Mermaid” Live-to-Film Concert Experience at the Hollywood Bowl



Thirty years ago this November, Walt Disney Animation Studios delivered into theaters what would become one of the most beloved movie musicals of all time: The Little Mermaid. And this past weekend at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, a group of contemporary celebrities performed onstage backed by a full orchestra to celebrate the cherished film in an incredibly entertaining way.

“The Little Mermaid: An Immersive Live-to-Film Concert Experience” brought together stars like Glee’s Lea Michele as Ariel, Mrs. Doubtfire’s Harvey Fierstein as Ursula, Tin Cup’s Cheech Marin as Chef Louis, The Nightmare Before Christmas’s Ken Page as Sebastian, The O.C.’s Peter Gallagher as King Triton, musician Leo Gallo as Prince Eric, and multiple-award-winning composer/songwriter Alan Menken to recreate the movie and Broadway musicals biggest moments live in front of the massive Hollywood Bowl audience.

Beyond the sheer amount of starpower present there that evening, one of the biggest highlights of the Hollywood Bowl’s The Little Mermaid experience had to be hearing Menken’s score performed live by the full orchestra, as conducted by Michael Kosarin (Beauty and the Beast / Enchanted / Tangled) while watching the movie projected on three large screens above and to the sides of that famous stage where The Beatles once performed.

Prior to the start of the performance, The Little Mermaid fans in attendance were given literal fans decked with the illustrated logo for the event, though the weather was not quite hot enough to necessitate them. There was also colorful costume contest, and a quirky old-time-Hollywood introduction before the Hollywood Bowl was transformed into the “Hollywood Fish Bowl” for a “Dive-In” evening under the stars. We were also treated to seventeen-year-old piano sensation Emily Bear’s original score to the 1938 Silly Symphony cartoon “Merbabies.”



Intermission was also especially fun, as the organizers of “The Little Mermaid: An Immersive Live-to-Film Concert Experience” had put together a series of hilarious Under-the-Sea-themed pun trailers for other Disney movies such as The Hunchback of Notre Dame (as The Humpback of Notre Dame), Dumbo (as Gumbo), Deadpool (as Tidepool), and TRON (as PRAWN).



All of the celebrity performances were excellent and well-matched with their respective parts, though they only came out to perform during the musical numbers (the rest of the dialogue was presented from the audio of the original film). And though I enjoyed Michele’s interpretation of Ariel’s singing voice and Page’s energetic take on Sebastian, the one true showstopping performance among the evening’s cast came from its unlikeliest member: the gravelly-voiced Fierstein bringing the house down with his “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” Here’s hoping he gets a call for Disney’s upcoming live-action The Little Mermaid reimagining.

Though this excellent and unique “The Little Mermaid: An Immersive Live-to-Film Concert Experience” show was limited to two nights this past Saturday and Sunday, the 2019 Hollywood Bowl season is just beginning and runs through the end of October. For more information and advance ticketing resources, be sure to visit the venue’s official website.

Lea Michele Goes Under the Sea for 'Little Mermaid' Performance at Hollywood Bowl!

Lea Michele performs on stage during the Hollywood Bowl’s production of The Little Mermaid Live in Concert on Saturday (May 18) in Hollywood.

The 32-year-old actress sang the role of Ariel for the live-to-film concert experience, which also starred Harvey Fierstein as Ursula, Peter Gallagher as King Triton, and Leo Gallo as Eric.

For the “Part of Your World” reprise, Lea got up close and personal with the audience and performed the song from a platform in the middle of the crowd!

“There is truly nothing like performing at the @hollywoodbowl ✨ What an amazing weekend! So grateful,” Lea captioned a photo on Instagram.

FYI: Lea is wearing a Christian Siriano dress and Mattia Cielo diamond earrings. She wore a Paolo Sebastian dress for the second act.

Da Los Angeles Daily News:

Fans celebrate the 30th anniversary of ‘The Little Mermaid’ with spectacular visuals and performances at the Hollywood Bowl
The live-to-film concert event featured performances by Lea Michele, Harvey Fierstein, Peter Gallagher and more on Friday night in Los Angeles.

Back in 2016, fans were elated to check out Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” presented on the big screen, filling up the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles over three evenings as a full orchestra, back-up singers and a few celebrity guests simultaneously sang and played along to the film as it was screened.

Three years later, the Hollywood Bowl presented an entirely new type of experience as with the help of technology they were able to take their “The Little Mermaid” live-to-film concert event and transform the venue into “an evening at the Hollywood Fish Bowl at the Dive-In Theater Under the Sea,” as concert director Richard Kraft described in a previous interview.



He wasn’t overselling it. Just before the film, which also screens on Saturday, May 18, began fans were greeted by the animated feature’s villain, Ursula, who took the audience from being at a drive-in to taking it to the depths of the ocean by using one of her sea witch spells. The vibe of the venue changed with the stunning, newly added visuals that were made possible courtesy of state-of-the-art projection, which was crisply cast upon the proscenium of the iconic Hollywood Bowl clamshell.

On top of the added visuals, the show did much more with its celebrity guest stars than before and incorporated not only the songs from Alan Menken’s Oscar- and Grammy Award-winning score for the film, but pieces from the Broadway version of the movie as well. “Glee” actress and Broadway regular Lea Michele was a perfect Ariel and she stunned the audience with her vocals and huge stage presence.

Bending gender roles with actor and playwright Harvey Fierstein as Ursula was a brilliant move; he was animated, he was dark and oh so creepy. Ken Page, who actually auditioned for the role of Sebastian the crab for the film, was able to take on the role 30 years later at the Hollywood Bowl and he nailed it.

Comedian and actor Cheech Marin had a lot of fun with his role as French Chef Louis. Rather than playing it straight, Marin kept his signature style and incorporated a bit of “I prefer East L.A.” into the seafood murdering chef’s memorable tune. Probably the biggest surprise for fans was how impressive Peter Gallagher was as King Triton.

Though he’s mostly known for his film and television roles, Gallagher spent a lot of his career doing Broadway plays and his chops are still razor sharp. In another smart casting move, L.A.-based pop singer Leo Gallo was brought in to be Prince Eric and it was evident by the audience reaction and applause that he won them over.

Overall the experience was much more elaborate than before, with added dancing and singing on stage, but they did cut the fireworks show. Instead, they brought out Menken at the close to play “Part of Your World” on piano with the original singing voice of Ariel, himself. It was a proper celebration of a film that has captured the hearts of audiences for three decades now. Guests were showing up in costumes from the movie and stood in line to take photos in a variety of elaborately themed booths located throughout the venue for before heading in to enjoy the movie.

FILM SCORES
Disney’s The Little Mermaid 30th Anniversary at The Hollywood Bowl
By Melissa Thompson | May 22, 2019



On Friday, May 18th, WAMG went under the sea for the 30th Anniversary “Live to Film Concert Experience” of Disney’s The Little Mermaid at the Hollywood Bowl.

There was no shortage of star power as some big names took the stage during the screening to sing all of the fan-favorite numbers. Lea Michele (as Ariel), Harvey Fierstein (as Ursula), Cheech Marin (as Chef Louis), Peter Gallagher (as King Triton), Leo Gallo (as Prince Eric), Ken Page (as Sebastian) and special guest Alan Menken, who performed the songs from the Oscar and Grammy-winning score as the film played on the Bowl’s movie screen accompanied by a full, live orchestra. Not gonna lie, we almost wept, when the beating-heart-of-Disney-musicals himself, Alan Menken walked out on stage and sat at the piano for a sweet rendition of “Part of Your World.”



The coolest part of the evening was the feeling of an underwater night out at the “dive-in,” in addition to the feature film, the show included a full program of aquatically-themed previews of coming attractions, nostalgic animated snack bar commercials, and the 1938 Silly Symphony cartoon “Merbabies” featuring the world premiere of a live original score composed and performed by 17 year-old piano sensation, Emily Bear. Fans were also invited to participate in a Little Mermaid themed costume contest and unique photo opportunities to get them in the spirit before the show.

Additionally, the award-winning creative studio Mousetrappe set up state-of-the-art projection mapping technology to project newly created and breathtaking animated “living scenery” onto the façade of the Hollywood Bowl, making the event an evolving extension of the beloved film and score.

It truly was a magical night under the sea (and stars!) and no one does that better then Disney.

Five Stars *****
