Beauty and the Beast London

Beauty and the Beast the Musical will Return to London’s West End

Beauty and the Beast the Musical is currently touring the UK but will open at the London Palladium this summer.

The production will start previews on 24th June and continue until 17th September.

Beauty and the Beast tells the story of Belle, who runs away and finds herself in a castle with anthropomorphized items, including the candelabra Lumière, the teapot Mrs. Potts and the grandfather clock Cogsworth. In order to escape the enchantress’ curse, the three merge while Belle falls for the Beast.

Beauty and the Beast the musical is based on Disney’s 1991 animated film of the same name and features music and lyrics by Tim Rice and Alan Menken.
