Finally, Angelenos will have a time and place to celebrate La La Land, their favorite under the radar musical. On Monday morning, Lionsgate announced that the world premiere of La La Land In Concert: A Live-To-Film Celebration will take place at the Hollywood Bowl over Memorial Day weekend.

Composer Justin Hurwitz will conduct the film's score and Oscar-winning song, "City of Stars" live with a 100-piece symphony orchestra, choir, and jazz ensemble as the movie plays.

“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. 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,” director Damien Chazelle said in a press release.

The Disney on Ice vibes will continue before and after the concert "with unique pre-show photo opportunities and an array of delights including a grand fireworks spectacular." After the Hollywood premiere, the show will travel around the world to delight middlebrow audiences near and far.
