Beauty and the Beast at the Aronoff was an amazing show! From Belle’s witty comments to Gaston’s ego and Lumiere’s silly movements, the Beast even got in a few jokes. It had a lot of comedy and was great for all ages! The set and costumes were beautiful and whimsical yet in the right lighting (or lack there of) it could be dark and almost spooky. I felt the excitement I had when watching this movie as a child and I am very happy to say my daughter did too. As a mom of three, and one being a type one diabetic, I never leave the house without being prepared for anything…like a change of clothes, snacks and little knickknacks for boredom. I took my 7yr old daughter to go see Beauty and the Beast, and other than needing an arm to rest her head on once and a while, she didn’t budge, her eyes were glued to the stage! So needless to say I did not need to bring my big purse full of quiet toys. I would still recommend at least bringing one quiet toy because even though everyone on stage is very captivating kids will be kids and the slightest thing could set them off. In the end it is a beautiful story from my personal favorite Be Our Guest to Tale as Old as Time and tearing up at the end, definitely a must see show.
Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial French town, and the Beast, who is a young prince transformed by an enchantress as punishment for his insensitivity. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved in return, the curse will be lifted and he will be transformed to his former self. If not, he and his palace of servants will remain under the spell for eternity. The score features songs from the 1991 movie by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, with additional lyrics by Tim Rice.
