A tale as old as time—Beauty and the Beast
There are few musicals that enchant as much as this tale as old as time—and after the Disney movie captured our hearts in 1991, the stage musical quickly followed in 1994 and has been a safe bet for musical houses ever since. And who wouldn’t want to watch Belle fall in love with the Beast? With tickets for Beauty and the Beast from StubHub, you can listen to your favourite musical numbers live.
Be our guest as this well-loved musical guides into a magical realm
Alan Menken, who wrote the original soundtrack for the 1991 film, helped adapt the music for the stage, and none other than Tim Rice (who has, numerous times, worked alongside Andrew Lloyd Webber) contributed the lyrics to Menken’s beautiful music. The enchanting tunes paired with timeless lyrics and a story that stems back to an 18th-century, French fairy tale create a magnificent story of love, fearlessness and magic. Travel alongside Belle when the brave young woman not only defies the narrow mindedness of the villagers but also sets out to rescue her father from the cruel claws of an enchanted Beast, tucked away in a castle in the woods. It is truly a tale as old as time when love conquers it all and peace and order are restored in the end, but to witness all the beautiful details and music in the middle, you have to be quick and get your tickets for Beauty and the Beast on StubHub now. Note that you can also sell tickets with us. Be stirred to tears when you finally hear your favourite songs like "Be Our Guest" and "Beauty and the Beast" sung live on stage. Be carried away when Belle descends the stairs in her iconic yellow dress and gets swept off her feet by the increasingly endearing Beast. Millions of fans have already been enchanted by this tale, and when the musical opened on Broadway in 1994, fans were milling to see it. In 2007, it closed after more than 5,000 performances, making it the tenth longest-running musical in Broadway history.
A well-beloved classic for the people and the show business
There are few stories as romantic as this one and it certainly attracted the big award ceremonies’ attention. The show garnered nine Tony Award nominations and pocketed one, while the Laurence Olivier Awards honoured the production with an award for Best New Musical in 1998. The enrapturing musical is a special hit with children, so the next family outing is a fixed deal with tickets for Beauty and the Beast from StubHub. If you plan to do more such things with your family, you may also consider Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Cinderella and Annie.
