With music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, the musical follows the Disney storyline of the prince rejecting to grant a beggar woman shelter.
She reveals herself to be an enchantress in disguise and places a curse on him and his castle. The young prince is turned into a beast – and cursed to live out his days in that form unless he can learn to love and earn that love himself. When Belle finds herself in his castle, the Beast may have found the hope he needs – if he can learn to listen to his heart before it is too late.
