Disappointing staging, Great score, Nostalgic, Great singing, Charming

See it if you love Beauty and the Beast. The cast is terrific and does justice to all the roles.

Don't see it if you need a fancy - or really any - set. Disney productions seem ever more reliant on the use of screens in place of actual stage pieces.

Fluffy, Great staging, Disappointing, Enchanting

See it if you’re a fan of the original film, musical or Disney in general.

Don't see it if you’re obsessed with the original production. This has much poorer staging and was disappointing for the high bar of Disney productions.

Must see, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you loved the Disney animation and the songs.

Don't see it if Expecting loads of sets, the production is heavily reliant on a screen to create sets and backdrops for scenes

Time Out London
July 1st, 2022

"Genuinely, it is one of the most visually impressive shows I’ve ever seen: ... if you just want two and a half hours of general musical theatre stuff happening, spectacularly, and vaguely in alignment with an old Disney film, then fill your boots. Disney effectively owns this story now, at least as far as musicals go, and while there are many depressing things about that, it unquestionably looks like a dream."

The Times (UK)

"Spectacle wins out over storytelling in this extravagant, exuberantly played revival ... “The most enchanted musical of all time,” it calls itself. That’s pushing it. Yet although it’s too tame to stir the soul, it’s too well tooled to lose your attention."

The London Evening Standard
July 1st, 2022

"Understandably, this production softens the testosterone-marinated arrogance of spurned suitor Gaston … And Beast is less terrifying monster, more grumpy pussycat … All in all, it’s an extravagant, memorable update on a tale that’s as old as time, but as exhilarating as ever."

Theatre Weekly (UK)

As you would expect with Disney, Beauty and the Beast brings us magic and wonderment at every turn. The staging is sensational, with large and complex set pieces floating and spinning in and out of view

"...it is difficult to envision many theatregoers not enjoying this show, though it may have a small handful of dramaturgical drawbacks, it delivers on so many fronts with powerhouse performances, dazzling magical effects and awe inspiring company numbers."

London Theatre

"Ultimately Beauty and the Beast hits all the marks you want from a heartwarming Disney show. You know what you’re signing up for, and the current updates and tweaks make Belle’s trailblazing story of sacrifice all the more relevant."
