We feel it in our fingers, we feel it in our toes: Christmas is all around, and we bet no one knows it better than the cast of Love Actually Live.
Throughout December, cult-favorite musical series For the Record presents a stage show based on one of the world's most beloved holiday movies, Love Actually. Using a multimedia set, a 15-piece orchestra and songs from the film, the new show will turn Beverly Hills' Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts into a feel-good winter set for musical numbers and scenes of the movie's intersecting love stories.
Of course the most beloved aspect of the movie is the character work—though the Christmas-time London setting gives that a run for its money—and to bring the insane, lovesick and relatable personas to life is a solid cast of familiar faces. Love Actually Live brings Rumer Willis to the stage (you may have seen her in Empire on Fox), as well as the Tony- and Grammy Award-winning Steve Kazee, and Kelley Jakle (from Pitch Perfect), Carrie Manolakos (Broadway’s Mamma Mia! and Wicked), Justin Sargent (NBC’s Jesus Christ Superstar: Live in Concert) and more.
To keep you toasty through the night, the Wallis bar program is even whipping up a few festive, themed cocktails such as the Heathrow Holiday, made with Cynar, triple sec, bitters and orange oils. See? Christmas really is all around.
