Disney India launches Beauty and the Beast stage show

Disney India has launched its live entertainment unit with the premiere of a live musical adaptation of the animated feature Beauty and the Beast.

Starring local talent, the English-language production, directed by Disney India’s Live Entertainment head Vikranth Pawar will visit Mumbai and Delhi between October and December this year.

The latest incarnation of the musical arrives over 20 years after the first staged musical version of the film opened on Broadway in 1994, featuring music by Alan Menken and lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.

The Indian take on the fairy tale also comes as Disney gears up for the reboot of the Beauty and the Beast franchise with a new, live action version starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens.
