Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage reviews
Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Beauty and the Beast - Live on Stage, a live show in Sunset Boulevard at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
Written by Robert Niles
Debuting on November 22, 1991 — the same day as the film which inspired it — this 25-minute musical offers a condensed version of the "tale as old as time," including five songs from the film: "Belle," "Be Our Guest," "Something There," "The Mob Song (Kill the Beast)," and the finale, "Beauty and the Beast."
It's a nice production overall. The costumes, performers, and production values of the show are all excellent. The movie is compresed into an approximately 30 minute show and the popular songs from the film are performed. Worth a look if time permits or waiting for a fastpass for a nearby ride to become valid. - Manny Barron
It's an ok show that overstayed it's welcome like many shows in this park. - O T
We love this show. It's our favorite theme park show. Beautiful costumes and the excellent songs make this a truly enjoyable experience. - Rob Pastor
Really weak show with poor costumes and dancing. Looks bad compared to Nemo and Lion King at DAK. - Sean Huckel
Good show with good acting, though I wish it were longer(bigger theater and 20 extra minutes perhaps?). - David L.
A good job of fitting a feature length movie into 25 minutes, acting, costumes and singing was excellent (as expected by Disney). Should be watched during every visit. - Ben Price
It is a fun interpretation of the movie / Broadway show. As with any production there are pluses and minuses. The abbreviation of the songs is a minus, but adding the Old Woman at the closing transformation was a plus.If you like Beauty and the Beast, you will like this show. 8/13 - Mitchell Botwin
This is a decent show with some great singing and nice costumes and sets. The songs are good and well performed. They've taken some liberties with the plot but this is to be expected as it's only a 25 minute show! Well worth a watch. - David Wilcock
