By now we have established that I love musical theater so it should be no surprise to anyone that I would not want to miss the only Broadway show performing at Wolf Trap this summer, Beauty and the Beast. Especially if tickets are only going to cost me $13. That's a steal of a deal for a show!
When I found out my roommate AnnaLisa had never seen the show live it became most important to make sure that this be rectified right away. I also believe in helping others appreciate the arts so I invited my favorite little princess, Lea, and her mom, my friend Nada to join us. Lea sat on my lap the whole show and was so into the show she didn't move. Later I found out that she told her mom she wanted to see it again. She loved it! While I have become something of a theater snob of late when it comes to seating and voices (there is nothing like an original case and a close seat to really make a show), I did enjoy seeing a favorite childhood show come to life. Disney did a great job of adapting this animated story to the stage. The set is truly spectacular and the additional songs are just as memorable as the ones from the movie.
Truly a tale as old as time.
