The ‘Little Mermaid’ Musical Adds Rebel Wilson, Tituss Burgess & More to Cast

The revival of The Little Mermaid musical is making the five-year-old inside of us jump up and down with anticipation. The production will take place at the Hollywood Bowl on June 4th. According to Billboard, the performance will include a 71 piece orchestra (oh yeah, we said 71) as well as a live choir.

And if all of that doesn’t take you back to brushing your hair with a fork as a child, we know exactly what will. The cast was recently announced, and some of our favorite celebs are stepping into the iconic roles.

“Love Song” singer, Sara Bareilles, will take the stage as ArielPitch Perfect‘s Rebel Wilson joins the cast as Ursula. Tituss Burgess, of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt fame, will play Sebastian. Glee‘s Darren Criss is on board as Prince Eric, and John Stamos (who needs no introduction, right?) will fill the role of Chef Louis.

Looks like we’ll be booking a trip to California ASAP.
