“Gaston” takes center stage at BEAUTY AND THE BEAST press conference!
My, what a guy!
Alan Menken has created the music for many a Disney classic, including The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, and yes, Beauty and the Beast. It’s no surprise that he joined the official Beauty and the Beast press conference to play a medley of his popular tunes, but the audience was pleasantly surprised to see Josh Gad (Le Fou) and Luke Evans (Gaston) join him on stage for a rousing rendition of “Gaston”!
The performance was definitely informal and it didn’t seem like the actors had much time to prepare– For instance, Evans is reading lyrics off the sheet music early on. However, they all seem to be enjoying themselves and Gad has some fun ad-libbing about the big Le Fou “announcement” at the end of the song.
Beauty and the Beast hits theaters on March 17, 2017.
