Beauty and the Beast on Broadway premiered on April 18, 1994. Owned by The Walt Disney Company, Beauty and the Beast is Broadway’s sixth – longest running production by Disney Theatrical. Beauty and the Beast is a traditional fairy tale which has its origin as far back as 1740 where it was believed to be first published. The story begins when Beauty’s father takes refuge in Beast’s castle during a bad storm. He plucks a rose from the palace intending to give it to his daughter. The owner of the castle, Beast is enraged and as a thief he must die. Beauty’s father begs to see his daughter one more time. The Beast offers him a deal; he may live if one of his daughter’s will come back and suffer in his place. Beauty becomes the mistress of the enchanted palace and the Beast asks her to be his wife. She declines, only wanting to be friends but as one last request she wishes to see her father one last time. The Beast allows it but with the delay of her promised return Beauty returns to find the Beast distressed almost to the point of death. Begging for his life, Beauty agrees to be his wife and the Beast becomes transformed into a handsome prince. Unknowingly, Beauty had broken a spell cast on the prince by a witch long ago.
