When John Stamos, Rebel Wilson, Sara Bareilles, and Darren Criss are just a few members of the all-star cast teaming up to perform songs from The Little Mermaid, such wonderful things surround you – what more is you looking for?
Ahead of this weekend’s concert performances of Disney’s 1989 animated film at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Bowl, several members of the cast took to social media to share a few behind-the-scenes videos and photos from their vocal rehearsal on Thursday.
“Oh, it’s on! Under the Sea. Tomorrow Hollywood Bowl,” shared Stamos. For her part, Wilson, gushed over the fact that they were rehearsing in the same studio at Sony where Judy Garland recorded The Wizard of Oz.
Backed by a 71-piece orchestra conducted by Michael Kosarin, Bareilles will star as Ariel, Wilson plays Ursula the Sea Witch, Criss is stepping into the role of Prince Eric, Norm Lewis and Tituss Burgess will reprise their Broadway roles as King Triton and Sebastian the Crab, respectively, Joshua Colley is playing Flounder and Stamos will be chewing the scenery as Chef Louis.
