Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage

An abbreviated telling of the story from the Disney's animated film Beauty and the Beast. Live actors use detailed costumes and staging to hit the lighlights of the story of a young woman who finds herself falling in love with a surly cursed prince. The show was so popular and well received that eventually it was expanded into a full Broadway stage musical.
