Beauty and the Beast had all the glitter and glamor of any high-end Broadway production. The special effects were absolutely phenomenal, and the songs were very Disney. My son loved the whole thing though he did get a little frightened when Belle's father was lost in the woods and when the Beast fought the wolves. We sat close to the stage and streamers fell from the ceiling during one part of the production. Our kid took some home with him along with the play's ticket stub so that he could share his experience with his Kindergarten class at show-and-tell time! We also went to a matinee performance rather than a night show so that there was no interference with sleep-time or grumpy attitudes because anyone was tired. I could not have asked for a better Broadway experience for my son, and my husband and I loved the play, too. It was well worth the time and money.
