Adapted By William Glennon
DIRECTED BY: BEthany bing
Mr. Glennon has used the Perrault version of this fanciful story as the basis of his charming play, but has added depth of character and believable answers to some of the puzzling questions. We learn how and why the prince was changed into a beast in the first place. We also see the beast’s growth, under Beauty’s subtle guidance, from a raging creature to a man who can be loved for himself. Beauty’s family provides a warm and amusing background to the main plot, and they, too, change for the better.
Recommended for All Audiences.
