Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ Returns to Atlanta’s Fox Theatre After 15 Years
‘The theme of ‘Beauty’ is about seeing
past the exterior into the heart of someone…’
After 15 years, Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast,’ the award-winning Broadway musical, returns to Atlanta’s November 27th to December 2nd…
Director Rob Roth tell us:
It has been wonderful to bring the entire original design team back together to work on this new production of ‘Beauty and the Beast.’ As a director, it is rare to have the opportunity to revisit your work 15 years later. Hopefully, I’ve grown and developed as an artist, along with my collaborators, and we can bring 15 years of experience to this new production.
We have remained very close as as team over the years of producing the show around the world, and it has been so much fun getting together to re-explore and re-invent the show for the new tour. The theme of ‘Beauty’ is about seeing past the exterior into the heart of someone, and this is reflected in the design of the show, which is about transparency and layers, seeing past one thing and into another.’
‘Beauty and the Beast’ is the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. 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.
Disney’s ‘Beauty and the Beast’ features the animated film’s Academy Award-winning score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice and the late Howard Ashman. It has become an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 21 countries.
