Theatre REVIEW: Beauty and the Beast - ★★★★

The brand new touring musical production reimagines the classic Disney musical romance.

Beauty and the Beast


Venue: Playhouse, Edinburgh

Dates: until 27th November

Mix Up Theatre Reviews: ★★★★

Disney proudly invites you to ‘Be Our Guest’ as the most enchanted musical of all time, Beauty and the Beast, returns to the UK stage in 2021.

Stewart - ★★★★

"Great to be back in a packed theatre - (though take note, get there super early as with Covid checks it takes an age to get in the building - we were not seated for the start of the show).

This is an all-time favourite of Disney - and rightly so. This stage musical does a grand job of bringing the story to the stage. The absolute highlight is predictably 'Be My Guest' with choreography and visuals being a complete knock-out. Another treat is also Gaston's song with clicking and clacking of beer tankards driving a brilliant rendition of the song.

Elsewhere the costumes are outstanding and the video screens representing the wolves are fabulous as well.

The stage does look a little dark at times however which leads to somehow missing some Disney magic throughout the piece. There's maybe a couple of songs that could have been cut as well to help with pacing.

However all in all this is a real treat to take the youngsters along to, especially if they are big fans of the films."
