This is definitely a must see. The set designs are cheery and uplifting.
The songs are wonderful and the actors are fabulous. People of all ages will enjoy this musical.

The show was great (4 star) for kids and good (3 star) for adults. It was long for the youngest kids - it ran from 7:30pm to 10:10pm.

The costumes are good, but the feather duster and the dresser were difficult to guess who they were with...continued

This was great for kids, though it is 2 1/2 hrs long with intermission. Also, kids may not be able to see well since this is an older theatre. My only gripe is that if you sat by the sound board the techs were ridiculously loud. I didn't expect...continued

Always fun to see a Disney production. Especially if it evokes childhood memories - even our children's childhood. This production was great. Our seats were the best for us. I am always amazed at what good seats GoldStar manages to get for us.

The show was great! Beauty and the Beast has always been one of my favorite stories.

However, I was annoyed at the number of parents who let their children talk... throughout the whole show. $70 is not pocket change for me, so when I pay that...continued

The musical follows the story from the animated movie. For a touring company, the sets and costumes were great. All in all the singing was very good, but there were no "star voices".

One note: my seats were to be "Rear Orchestra/Front...continued

Loved it! Amazing singing, great costumes & sets, cool special effects! And the best part was the little kids' reactions all over the theater!

It was very cute, and there were several tiny girls in the audience dressed as Belle who were enthralled. The show is very hammy, but hey - its a stage production of an animated film! It has none of the artistic transcendence that "Lion King"...continued

The supporting cast was amazing. Gaston was perfect as were his side kick Maurice (children couldn't help but be carried away with his physical performance), Lumière (highly entertaining) and Cogsworth (delightful). Both Mrs Potts and the...continued

This was certainly worth the money. One can always count of great sets and costumes with a Disney Production. This show did not fail. The singing, dancing and acting were superb. My grand kids (9-10) were entertained through the entire show.

Not as spectacular as the Broadway version and a bit more kid oriented. The performers are solid, but I wasn't sold on the casting for the Beast. He had trouble with a key song and really didn't breath life into the part. Overall, a pleasant...continued

This event is aimed at young children - it is NOT for audiences who expect a professional, respectable performance. The horrible interpretation was slap-stick and cheesy, which is great for 5 year olds, but not for people who expect a...continued

It was fun, especially for kids. Lots of visual, physical comedy. Music was very well done and dance and song for the part with tankards was brillient!

My granddaughter and I attended this event and had a good time. Certainly not the best musical we've seen, but enjoyable. Gaston's voice was incredible, but the 'beast' was sorely lacking. Belle was good.

My second favorite after the Lion King. I came back home and watched the Disney cartoon again as I could not get enough of it :)

Great acting, great voices! I loved it!

A fun Disney musical. Enjoyed the cast, sets, and special effects. Great for families, kids, and adults, alike. I also love the National Theater which has very comfortable seats with a bit more leg-room than some other venues.
