The Beauty and the Beast opened with great pomp and fare last September in Mumbai. Before opening night, people wondered whether it would match the scale and spectacle of New York’s Broadway and whether a fully Indian cast could pull off something like this play. After the first show in Mumbai, all these doubts were put to rest and India was introduced to a whole new genre and level of entertainment. The sets, costumes and props were absolutely magnificent and the performances so refined that one would think the actors had been doing this for years.
After a week of sold out shows in Mumbai, 60 trucks loaded with equipment and sets were hauled to Delhi where the play made its presence felt all over again.
This May, Beauty and the Beast will return to Mumbai for a longer run of 10 shows over two weekends. Based on the demand they saw in season one this time around the ticket bookings will open as early as March 16th. After its second season in Mumbai the play will visit Delhi in June. Siddharth Roy Kapur, MD, Disney Indiahas grand plans to take this play to Bangalore, Kolkata, Pune, Hyderabad and Chennai.
Beauty and the Beast, season 2 will open on May 6th, at NSCI Mumbai and tickets will start from Rs 1500 available on bookmyshow.com
So for all those who missed this musical extravaganza the first time around, here is your second chance.
