“A delightful musical with a timeless message!” hails the Argonaut. “A wonderful theatrical experience!” raves Between Pages. It’s the acclaimed Rudie-DeCarlo musical comedy, a charmingly original adaptation of that most gloriously romantic love story, with a brand-new inclusive twist.
The third in the series of Fairy Stories for Pride productions, playwrights Chris DeCarlo and Evelyn Rudie mold the magic, romance, humor and grandeur of this timeless tale into a production which touches the hearts, and indeed, almost the fingertips, of its audience members. Set in a fantasy Medieval milieu "long, long ago," a lovely and spirited Beauty takes charge of her fate and molds herself a most endearing Beast, who offers her a rose garden of a thousand and one delights.
Replete with ditzy sisters, a befuddled sire, a spell-binding sorceress and a flamboyantly foppish suitor, who all inadvertently or intentionally strew more than a few thorns along Beauty and her Beast's arduous, and ardor-ous, path, Beauty and her Beast discover that loves wins out, allowing all to find their happily-ever-after endings, and proving that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder. The all-male original practices production features Patrick Censoplano, Nima Ghassemian, Luke Martin McMahan, Joseph Perez, Graham Silbert, Sam Sturges, and Zack Medway as Beauty.
Beautiful costumes by Graham Silbert and award-winning designer Ashley Hayes, magical special effects by Nima Ghassemian, and an ornately detailed Medieval set with castle walls that magically transform before your eyes, create the perfect late-night date-night musical. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST comes with a glass of rosé to toast finding your true love, or creating the love you need. May not be suitable for the under 15's - parent discretion advised.
