Starlight "Beauty and the Beast" review by John Coovert
Beauty and the Beast is one of those shows that is difficult to review as I feel it may be nearly critic proof. I state that as I feel most patrons will have already made up their minds when they attend as to what they are in for. To be sure it is approximately a straight forward adaptation of the Disney animated classic with several new numbers sprinkled in. That said animated classic also happens to be the first animated feature to ever be nominated for an Academy Award best picture. Yes, it was that good. So does the stage production hold up?
