Disney’s beloved, multi-award winning stage musical, Beauty and the Beast, is to be re-imagined and re-designed in a completely new production staged by the original award-winning creative team, which will open a UK & Ireland Tour in May 2021.
Performances will begin at Curve, Leicester on Tuesday 25 May 2021, with other engagements also announced today in Dublin, Bristol, Liverpool and Edinburgh.
Customers can sign up to be amongst the first to access tickets and can find all tour dates and information at www.beautyandthebeastmusical.co.uk.
Spectacularly reimagined in startling new designs which will use the latest theatrical innovations, this timeless romantic tale will be brought to life on stage like never before, with all the charm and elegance audiences expect from Belle and her Beast.
Rob Roth, a Tony®-nominee for the original production, will again direct, leading a team that includes composer Alan Menken, lyricist Tim Rice, book writer Linda Woolverton, choreographer Matt West, scenic designer Stan Meyer, costume designer Ann Hould-Ward and lighting designer Natasha Katz. The team collectively received five Tony® nominations and a win for Hould-Ward’s costume design, when Disney first debuted Beauty and the Beast on Broadway 26 years ago.
