Beauty and the Beast tells the story of a cold-blooded prince who has been magically transformed into an unsightly creature as punishment for his selfish ways. To revert into his true human form, the Beast must first earn the love of a bright, beautiful young woman whom he has imprisoned in his enchanted castle before it is too late!

Winner of the 1994 Tony Award for Best Costumes and the 1998 Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Musical, Disney's Beauty and the Beast is a musical with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton. Adapted from Walt Disney Pictures' Academy Award-winning 1991 animated musical film of the same name—which in turn had been based on the classic French fairy tale by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont.
