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.

Lea Michele is best known for her performance as "Rachel Berry" on the critically acclaimed, Golden Globe, Grammy, and SAG award-winning FOX television series Glee. She has been nominated for an Emmy, a SAG Award, and multiple Golden Globes. The GLEE cast recordings have sold over 10 million singles and garnered over 20 top 40 US Billboard Hot 100 hits. Lea released her debut album 'Louder' in March of 2014, marketing her step into her career as a solo artist with an incredible vocally-driven record. The album debuted at No. 1 on iTunes and in the Top 5 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. That same year, Lea added best-selling author to her resume when she released her first book, "Brunette Ambition", which was a NY Times Best Seller. She released her second book, "You First," the following year. She recently starred IN THE DARK Ryan Murphy comedy SCREAM QUEENS on FOX.


DISNEY'S THE LITTLE MERMAID will be given new life for two special evenings at Hollywood (Fish)Bowl on Friday, May 17th and Saturday, May 18th. Coinciding with the 30th anniversary of the classic Disney film, the production features an all-star cast of performers including Lea Michele (as Ariel), Harvey Fierstein (as Ursula), Cheech Marin (as Chef Louis), Peter Gallagher(as King Triton), Leo Gallo (as Prince Eric), and Ken Page (as Sebastian) who will perform the songs from the Oscar® and Grammy®-winning score as the film plays on the Bowl's movie screen accompanied by a full, live orchestra. Eight-time Oscar® winner Alan Menken will take the stage to treat the audience to a special encore performance and the concert will be directed by Richard Kraft.

Celebrated songs from THE LITTLE MERMAID will be performed live on stage by the incredible cast, accompanied by orchestra with fan-favorite musical numbers including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl," "Poor Unfortunate Souls" and "Part of Your World." To expand on the musical experience, a number of songs from Broadway's The Little Mermaid will be incorporated into the evening. To make this event even more immersive (and submersive) this iconic venue will be transformed into the Hollywood Fish Bowl Dive-In Theater for a magical night both under the stars and "under the sea."

‘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?”
