Beauty and the Beast coming soon!
After a fabulous response to the first ever staging of the Disney classic – Beauty and the Beast, the production is all set for it’s Summer 2016 launch in the city.
The Beauty and the Beast musical was completely developed locally in India, while retaining the original script and memorable music of the Broadway show. Over 100 of the best musical theatre performers in India brought the story of Beauty and the Beast alive on stage, with world class production values, lavish sets and gorgeous costumes.
Disney India collaborated with the very best local talent, who worked closely with these renowned International artists to recreate the musical in India. Some eminent names involved in the Indian production are – Vikranth Pawar (Show Director and Creative Head, Live Entertainment at Disney India), Lesle Lewis (Music Direction),Terence Lewis (Choreography), Varsha Jain (Set Design), Gavin Miguel (Costume Design), Pallavi Devika (Hair & Make-up) and Suzanne D’Mello (Vocal Training).
In Mumbai it was performed at Dome@NSCI, SVP Stadium, while in Delhi it was held at Thyagaraj Sports Complex; each of which could accommodate about 2500 people for each show. The show promised to be the most immersive Broadway scale show where a select set of audience got the opportunity to be a part of all the action and experience the magic at 360 degrees (on swivel chairs).
The second season will be staged at the iconic NSCI from the 6th – 15th of May 2016. Tickets are on sale on BookMyShow!
We are certainly looking forward to our second viewing. Are you?
