Love Actually Live at The Wallis

We could not think of a better way to ring in the holiday season than attending opening night of Love Actually Live at The Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts in Beverly Hills.

This year’s star-studded cast includes Grace Kinstler (American Idol finalist – season 19); Chris Mann (The Voice finalist – season 2); Drew Seeley (Emmy-nominee, Disney’s High School Musical); Cheyenne Isabel Wells (Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies); Rex Smith (RIAA Gold recording artist); Madison Taylor Baez (America’s Got Talent “Gold Buzzer” winner – season 17, Showtime’s Let The Right One In, Netflix’ Selena: The Series); and Brian McKnight Jr. (R&B singer/songwriter, returning Love Actually Live cast member.)

The evening started with a red carpet featuring both cast members and celebrity attendees who love the film including appearances by Rumer Willis (The House Bunny); Sara Drew (Grey’s Anatomy); Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls); Retta (Parks & Recreation); Monique Coleman (High School Musical); David Archuleta (American Idol ); Andrew Walker (Hallmark’s Curious Caterer); Cindy Busby (Hallmark’s Everything Christmas); Erin Cahill (Hallmark’s Hearts in the Game); Jason Blair (Whiplash, Good Trouble); Grant Gustin (The FlashGlee); Kevin McHale (Glee); Ashley Fink (Glee); Tricia Fukuhara (Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies); Vanessa Papa (The Ultimatum: Queer Love) and more.

LOVE ACTUALLY LIVE celebrates the 20th anniversary of the beloved holiday film’s release and this Broadway style production featured a multi-media presentation seamlessly alternating between iconic film clips and live performances on stage.

The play truly transports the audience into a three-dimensional world where the movie is displayed on screens that move throughout the set, complemented by an all-star cast of singers and a live orchestra, delivering a reimagined soundtrack featuring beloved songs such as “Christmas is All Around,” “Trouble with Love,” and Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now.”

Tickets for LOVE ACTUALLY LIVE are now on sale with prices ranging from $79 to $139 for all performances and runs through December 30th. Visit
