A Disney Broadway musical, Beauty and the Beast brings magic roses, dancing candelabras, talking teapots and a whole cast of memorable, musical characters to the stage. Based on the Academy Award-winning animated feature film, this tale as old as time includes beloved songs like "Be Our Guest," "A Change in Me," "Human Again" and the unforgettable title track. A love story filled with romance, tragedy and friendship, Beauty and the Beast features songs written by Alan Menken (The Little Mermaid, Tangled) and the late Howard Ashman (Aladdin), along with new songs by Menken and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita).

Facile and articulate dancers move through the most poignant choreography and physical theater I've seen in years. From beginning to end, I was engaged. The choreography was the best use of contact improvisation I've seen on stage or even in studios.

White Bird Uncaged is delighted to present the return of Kidd Pivot Frankfurt RM and Crystal Pite’s new work Dark Matters at the Newmark Theatre, Portland Center for the Performing Arts. Kidd Pivot’s Lost Action launched White Bird Uncaged in Fall 2008, and Portland audiences discovered in Pite one of Canada’s most exciting and inventive choreographers. Emerging from Pite’s fascination with the unseen forces at work on mind and body, Dark Matters is a brilliant combination of lifelike puppetry and dynamic movement, featuring a haunting original score from long-time collaborator Owen Belton.
The performance runs two hours with an intermission.
