More about the show:
Beauty and the Beast
A young prince commits a heartless act and is punished with a devastating curse. If he can’t find love by the time the last petal falls off of an enchanted rose, he will remain a hideous beast forever. Enter Belle, a naive dreamer who must undergo a transformation of her own. The popularity of this fairy tale has endured into the 21st century thanks to the dazzling 1991 Disney movie adaptation and subsequent musical. Cannon Theater Company’s production will peel back some of the Broadway glitz and familiar Disney imagery in order to examine with fresh eyes the epic, universal emotions at the heart of this strangely beautiful story.
