Nothing takes the place of a live theater audience and full on-stage production of a favorite story. With every detail in the costumes, props, orchestral music and stage sets, it’s living art unfolding in front of you scene by scene.
Update: Dec 1st my daughter and I had the pleasure of attending the Beauty and the Beast musical at the Academy of Music… and it completely lived up to our expectations. Character after character sang beautifully well and the set design was a masterpiece in itself. My daughter, being 3 years old, wanted to dance in the aisle and eventually whispered in my ear that she wished to be on stage. I love how Beauty and the Beast held her attention and provided this unforgettable glow of excitement.
Live theater can provide more than an afternoon of entertainment; it can ignite a passion for the arts – whether creative writing or production set design or any number of artistic avenues. Broadway musicals and theater unlocks the door to a child’s imagination. I saw this first hand, when my daughter decided to play Beauty and the Beast with her Barbies and Disney princess dolls – setting them up like the Beauty and the Beast show. My husband and I took advantage of this opportunity and helped her play this story out. Here’s our video below. Two days later, with Barbies in every space of her room, I found that she had set up yet another “production” on her own with a much smaller audience. She designed a run-way stage and said it was Cinderella’s turn. Thanks to Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, my daughter as a fresh idea in playing with her Barbies, accessories and things around her to expand her imaginative play. I love that.
