At last Friday’s “Disney’s The Little Mermaid in Concert” singalong at the Hollywood Bowl, teen actor Harley Quinn Smith, daughter of filmmaker Kevin Smith, didn’t take her boyfriend or BFF, but rather, her grandmother. How sweet is that?
Backed by a live orchestra, the crowd belted out tunes along with the stars on stage, including Sara Bareilles (Ariel), Rebel Wilson (Ursula), Darren Criss (Eric), John Stamos (Chef Louis) and Tituss Burgess (Sebastian), a role he also played in the Broadway version of the movie. Plus there were fireworks! How could this not have been a fun night for kids of all ages? We dare you to watch this video of the stars singing “Under the Sea” and not smile:
Still singing "Under the Sea" after The Little Mermaid Live in Concert at the Hollywood Bowl last night! Here you'll see Alan Menken (composer), Jodi Benson (original voice of Ariel), Sara Bareilles (Ariel), Rebel Wilson (Ursula), John Stamos (Chef Louis), Norm Lewis (King Triton), and the rest of the amazing cast taking a bow and singing the catchy tune. #LittleMermaidLIVE
Also in attendance were Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick, who reportedly reunited for the evening to take their kids Mason, 6, and Penelope, 3, to the event (baby Reign stayed home).
Here’s some other snapshots and videos from the event we wish we’d attended. New Jersey theaters, get on this idea!
