Since its appearance in 18th-century France, the fairytale Beauty and the Beast has sparked myriad adaptations (crafted by everyone from Jean Cocteau to Philip Glass) but none with quite the punch of the billion-dollar musical. Planted on Broadway from 1994 to 2007, the musicalized Beauty expands on Disney’s animated blockbuster via new songs by Alan Menken and Tim Rice. Belle, her beastly prince and his castle filled with enchanted household items invite you to be their guest at a limited run presented by NETworks and Broadway in San Antonio.
