Book by Linda Woolverton
Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI)

A wandering enchantress transforms a cruel and vain prince into a hideous Beast, leaving him only one way to reverse the curse … to fall in love and earn love in return. Belle, a beautiful booklover, encounters the Beast when she arrives at his castle to plead for her father’s freedom, ultimately trading her own for his. As tension over her imprisonment escalates, spurred by Gaston, the selfish lover who seeks Belle’s hand in marriage, the relationship between Belle and the Beast grows, leading to an emotional and transformative ending.
