Director Rob Roth: "It has been wonderful to bring the entire original design team back together to work on this new production of Beauty and the Beast. As a
director, it is rare to have the opportunity to revisit your work fifteen years later. Hopefully I've grown and developed as an artist, along with my collaborators,
and we can bring 15 years of experience to this new production. We have remained very close as a team over the years of producing the show around the world, and
it has been so much fun getting together to
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.
