What's This?Ryan Gosling as Seb and Emma Stone as Mia in "La La Land."
La La Land will have one more lovely night in the City of Stars.
The musical — which took home six Oscars (not including Best Picture) — is getting its own "live-to-film" celebration, Lionsgate announced Monday. Is anyone surprised?
The concert will kick off with two nights at the Hollywood Bowl, L.A.'s iconic outdoor venue, on May 26 and May 27.
A 100-piece symphony orchestra, choir, and Jazz ensemble will accompany the film's original vocal recordings (of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling). Composer Justin Hurwitz will be on hand to conduct.
"For me, one of the most thrilling and fulfilling parts of making La La Land was scoring the film to a live orchestra: a hundred phenomenal local musicians playing in real-time to the Technicolor images, bringing Justin's compositions to vivid life," Damien Chazelle, who won the Oscar for Best Director, said in a statement. "I couldn't be more excited to share that experience with audiences this summer, let alone in a setting as epic and as quintessentially 'LA' as the Hollywood Bowl."
There will be a pre-show photobooth and post-show "grand fireworks spectacular." And yes, "vintage Hollywood-inspired dress is encouraged."
Following the world premiere in Los Angeles, La La Land In Concert will move on to Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, San Diego, San Antonio, Dallas, Indianapolis, Nashville, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, Denver and Washington D.C.
It will also tour globally in the U.K., Canada, Mexico, Italy, Turkey, and Switzerland, with additional locations to be announced.Topics: concert, Entertainment, Movies, hollywood bowl, la la land, Lionsgate, Music
