A visit to Disney’s Hollywood studios isn’t complete without seeing Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage. The show which opened on November 22, 1991, the same day the movie opened in theaters across the United States, is a 25 minute stage version of the animated film. The stage show started as a trial to see if an animated Disney movie would translate well as a live stage production. The success of this “experiment” led Disney to take the leap to the Broadway stage, where as we all know, they have had much success. Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage is perfect family entertainment as it has something for everyone be it a princess with a love story, Gaston and the angry mob or a castle full of enchanted objects, the whole family will enjoy this show.
The production is performed several times a day in the Theater of the Stars on Sunset Blvd. Check your times guide for show times. The theater is a 1,500 seat covered amphitheater.
The stage show highlights all of the key moments and musical numbers from the movie. One of my favorites is the huge production number, “Be Our Guest”.
Is Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage a must-do for your family? Why or why not? Leave me a comment and let me know.
