Based on an 18th-century French fairy tale, Disney’s animated version of the story became the first animated film to win a Best Picture Oscar in 1991. In 1994, the show premiered on Broadway, where it was nominated for nine prestigious Tony Awards and ran for 13 years. Since licensing of the title began in 2004, there have been 28,000 productions in eight languages across 22 countries that have been seen by more than 35 million people.
“Beauty and the Beast” tells the story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped by a spell placed on him by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will be broken and he will be transformed back into his former self.
