Still can't get enough La La Land? While the award season hype — that awkward Oscars best picture mix-up included — has finally died down, we'll always have a soft spot for the cinematic musical. Now the makers behind the magic are gifting us an exciting La La Land live makeover that'll keep us dancing and dreaming to the thrilling soundtrack for many months to come.

La La Land in Concert: A Live-to-Film Celebration will take fans on a live experience of the music behind the film, Lionsgate announced on Monday.

The concert series, which begins May 26, will make its debut at the Hollywood Bowl and feature original instrumental and vocal tracks that will be performed by a large orchestra, choir, and jazz group, all conducted by the movie's Oscar-winning composer Justin Hurwitz.

With best original score and best original song ("City of Stars") Oscars among its six Academy Award wins, the movie's transformation into a live concert seems natural. And while we might not see Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone singing and dancing their way through Los Angeles, we're definitely in for a treat with a themed show that has a suggested "vintage Hollywood-inspired" dress code and fireworks.

The show kicks off in Los Angeles on May 26 and 27 (Friday and Saturday) and will then make its way to a slew of other cities like San Diego, Portland, Seattle, Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, and San Antonio. The musical extravaganza will also debut abroad in the U.K., Canada, Mexico, Italy, Turkey, and Switzerland, and more locations are to be announced.

Tickets for the L.A. shows go on sale on Friday, March 10, at 9 a.m. ET via ticketmaster.com and the Hollywood Bowl box office.

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] What is it we love about Emma Stone? Let us count the ways. She breaks the red carpet mold. Forget princess dresses, she looks just as terrific in [UNKNOWN] trousers as she does in a Christian [UNKNOWN] tuxedo gown based on the design of a smoking jacket. [MUSIC] She's light, lively and always makes this thing up. Look at this playful example of stripes with polka dots from Michael Kors. She's all about a textured performance from Alta Zara's sequenced embroidery to the stunning custom [UNKNOWN] gown she wore to the Oscar's and dubbed a salary stick. Stone [UNKNOWN] fashion with multiple dimensions. She chooses just how much to reveal. Even in slightly bare looks, like a lace top from Monique Lhuillier, or Oscar De La Renta's lovely black cocktail dress, she's firmly in control of what we see. That's a refreshing change from todays red carpet. She's Ella Stone, and she doesn't take fashion too seriously.
