Why See Beauty and the Beast?
A magical evening for all the family!
Certain stories carry on from generation to generation and earn the designation "timeless" for good reason. Beauty and the Beast is one such story.
The Walt Disney Company knew they were dealing with a magical tale when they released their animated musical version of Beauty and the Beast in movie theaters just in time for the 1991 holiday season. The film became so popular that it completely revived the Disney animation department and went on to become the first animated film to ever be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. Immediately theater fans said that the score and story were good enough for Broadway and they were right! Beauty and the Beast premiered on the Great White Way more than a decade ago, the first of Disney's theatrical ventures, and became a Tony winner and an instant smash with family audiences.
In Beauty and the Beast, Belle, a young woman in a small, provincial town, meets the Beast, in reality a young prince whose lack of compassion has trapped him in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and to be loved, the spell will be broken and he will be transformed back to his former self. But time is running out, and if the Beast does not learn his lesson, he will be doomed for all eternity.
