This tale as old as time began as a French story written by Madame Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve in 1740, who is  considered the original author of the story of Beauty and the Beast or Belle et la Bêteis. The story was later altered by Walt Disney in the 1991 academy-award winning Disney animated film .

The story is about a girl named Belle who falls in love with a Beast trapped in an enchanted Castle. This love eventually breaks the curse bestowed upon the castle and all who dwell within it. The film went on to become the first Disney musical to hit the Broadway stage.  The Broadway show premiered in Houston, Texas on November 28, 1993. It currently holds the record for the eighth longest-running Broadway musical of all time.  Now directing this live action play is Bill Condon who is known for directing the hit musical  Dreamgirls.  New props and costumes have been added to this year’s tour as well. With the many musical dance numbers, elaborate fantasy costumes, and beautiful lighting Beauty and the Beast the Musical is sure to enchant its audience!
