Variety has just reported that Oscar-nominee Stanley Tucci has joined the cast of the upcoming Beauty and the Beast. Tucci will be playing Cadenza, the grand piano. This comes just hours after Ewan McGregor was revealed to be joining the cast consisting of Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Luke Evans, Josh Gad, and Ian McKellen.
I love Claire Moore. I think she is one of the most underrated Christines ever. Why? She played a big part in developing the role in the early years. Her cadenza is favored by many actresses performing the role- many US actresses have wanted to use the cadenza she originated- and it is loved by many fans of the show.
