DISNEY'S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST 

The smash hit Broadway musical coming to New Orleans Saenger Theatre

FEBRUARY 4 - 9, 2014

 

(NEW ORLEANS) - Dec. 2, 2013 - Disney's Beauty and the Beast, the award-winning worldwide smash hit Broadway musical, is coming to New Orleans as part of the East Jefferson General Hospital Broadway in New Orleans series. Produced by NETworks Presentations, this elaborate theatrical production will come to life on stage at the newly-renovated Saenger Theatre, Feb. 4 - 9, 2014.

Single tickets start at $26 and will go on sale, Friday, Dec. 6, at 10 a.m. Tickets will be available at the Saenger Theatre Box Office, BroadwayInNewOrleans.com  and all Ticketmaster outlets. Group sales are underway for groups of 10 or more. Groups may call 504.287.0372. For additional information, visit www.BeautyAndTheBeastOnTour.com.

Disney's Beauty and the Beast features the animated film's Academy Award®-winning score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by the late Howard Ashman, with additional songs composed by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. The book is written by Linda Woolverton.

The original creators of the Broadway production are together again for this new touring production. The play is Directed by Rob Roth and Choreographed by Matt West, with Costume Design by Ann Hould-Ward (Tony Award® winner for her work on Disney's Beauty and the Beast), Lighting Design by Natasha Katz (three-time Tony Award® winner), Scenic Design by Stanley A. Meyer, Sound Design by John Petrafesa Jr. and Music Supervision by Michael Kosarin.

Disney's 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 has become an international sensation that has played to over 35 million people worldwide in 22 countries and has been translated into 9 different languages.  This production launched in February 2010 and has been seen by over 2 million people while playing over 1,000 performances in all 50 United States and 6 Canadian Provinces.
