Disney’s Beauty and the Beast comes to life at Olney Theatre Center with a production hailed by The Washington Post as “transformative.” It’s a tale as old as time, but it gets a new look from Tony-nominated director Marcia Milgrom Dodge (one of the featured professional directors on the Disney+ show “Encore”). Olney’s biggest show of the year brings the whole family together for a magical and memorable musical about the redemptive power of love. Join Belle, Lumiere, Cogsworth, and the rest of the gang in the Beast’s cursed castle for an escape to a world where beauty is more than skin deep and happily ever after is just a rose petal away.

It always seems like we coast right into winter after Halloween, so why not start planning for some cold season indoor entertainment now? Plus, I’ve got tickets to give away to a smash hit show coming to DC in January.
The romantic Broadway musical for all generations, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, is returning to DC at the Warner Theatre January 6-11! Tickets are already on sale for all shows, both evening and matinee performances, and prices range from $47 to $143.
It’s the classic fairytale performed on stage, featuring an award-winning score with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by the late Howard Ashman, with additional songs with music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. Here’s the official description from the website:
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.
