“Area Stage Company’s new immersive production of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is, as the French would say, magnifique.”
– The Miami Herald
“There is a reimagining, and then there is director Giancarlo Rodaz’s visionary, deeply moving new production.”
– Florida Theater On Stage
“I would find myself awash in a sense of genuine wonder at the daring, fun, and spectacle of it all.”
– South Florida Theater Magazine
Beauty and the Beast is back by popular demand! A winner of multiple Carbonell Awards, including the top honor of best musical, Area Stage’s acclaimed production of the Broadway extravaganza returns for a limited engagement.
Described by one critic as a “visionary, urgent deconstruction,” director Giancarlo Rodaz’s reimagining of the Tony-nominated musical invites audiences to step firsthand into the play’s enchanted world. Once you decide to “be our guest” and join us in the Beast’s castle, you’ll find yourself right in the middle of the action, which takes place throughout the theater space rather than on a single stage.
Beauty and the Beast’s classic story of love and transformation is more exciting and affecting than ever in this resonant retelling, so don’t miss your chance to see this tale as old as time as you’ve never seen it before!
