Step into the enchanted world of Broadway’s modern classic,
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, 9 time Tony Award Nominee and an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide. Originally published in 1740, the tale of love and friendship, has been abridged, rewritten and published over the years. Beauty ran on Broadway for 5,461 performances between 1994 and 2007, becoming Broadway’s ninth longest-running production.
A lonely beast and a beautiful girl find love in unlikely places.
The classic story tells of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under the spell of an enchantress for his cruel and selfish ways. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
