The cast will also include Tony victor Jane Krakowski (She Loves Me) as Mrs. Potts, Tony nominee Kelsey Grammer (La Cage aux Folles) as Lumiere, Taye Diggs (Hedwig and the Angry Inch) as Gaston and Rebel Wilson (Guys and Dolls) as Lefou. "I am looking forward to what I'm sure will be a magical event", the New Girl star added.

"I love this film, I love Alan Menken, and I loved Jerry Orbach-the title song, as sung by Angela Lansbury, makes me cry to this day". Most relatably, Wilson said she would be, "mentally preparing for the role in France by eating croissants". I'm giddy with excitement at the opportunity to finally sing the role.

"Walking in the footsteps of such a brilliant cast is an honour; and as for singing the music of the incomparable Alan Menken - it goes without saying". He's "harbored jealousy of every actor who ever played Gaston", and now is so grateful to have his turn. "I am beyond excited to be a part of what will be another fantastic evening".
