A live performance of Coco? Go on, we’re listening. A performance featuring a live orchestra and actors? You have our attention. All of this and a viewing of the movie happening at the same time blending the stage and screen into one experience? OK, where and when is this — we want in?!
For one weekend only (November 8-9, 2019 at 8:00 PM PT), Coco will come to life at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Although the official press release (full release with interviews from PR Newswire is below) notes that tickets go on sale Friday, September 13 at Noon PT, it should be noted that there are many presales which start tomorrow, Tuesday, September 10, so take a look and get your tickets early.

Another thing we spotted when looking at the list of live performers is that Benjamin Bratt and Eva Longoria are listed as co-hosts for the event. We’re not sure if this means that Benjamin will be performing as well (he voiced Ernesto de la Cruz), or solely co-hosting.
Additionally, when Coco was in theaters, Anthony Gonzalez performed the voice of Miguel, but, it appears that his brother, Alex will take his place in voicing Miguel. (We assume this is because Anthony’s voice has changed as he’s grown up since voicing the character.)
One of the most exciting notes that we saw is that Mama Imelda herself, Alanna Ubach, will be performing on stage — wow, what a night this will be for guests.
