Disney announced Monday that Michele would star as Ariel in “The Little Mermaid — An Immersive Live-to-Film Concert Experience” on May 17 and 18 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles. Timed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the animated film, the production will feature live performances of classic songs like “Part of Your World” and “Poor Unfortunate Souls,” paired with footage from the movie.
But when the official Disney Princesses Instagram account posted a photo of Ariel alongside a headshot of Michele, fellow actress Lindsay Lohan appeared to express her dismay using just one word: “Huh?”
Comments by Celebs captured the moment for posterity on its Instagram, though the “Mean Girls” star’s original comment was still visible on the Disney Princesses account as of Thursday afternoon, too.
Last year, she shared an image of the character, along with sea witch Ursula, to her Instagram stories with the words, “My dream Role with #MerylStreep,” emblazoned above them.
Thus far, Michele doesn’t appear to have responded to Lohan’s remark. The same day that the “Mermaid” performances were announced, however, she appeared to be getting into character, lounging by a pool in a fake fish tail with a bikini top.
Rounding out the Hollywood Bowl cast will be Ken Page as Sebastian, Peter Gallagher as King Triton, Leo Gallo as Prince Eric and Harvey Fierstein as Ursula.
