Beauty and the Beast Musical will stop in Birmingham next spring

Solihull Editorial 29th Oct, 2021   0

A TALE as old as time is set to make its way to Birmingham in the spring.

The stage adaptation of Beauty and the Beast will be heading to the Hippodrome to bring to life the timeless romantic tale from March 3 to 26.

The Olivier award-winning musical will include iconic songs from the 1991 film Be Our Guest, Belle and Beauty and the Beast.

Courtney Stapleton and Emmanuel Kojo will take on the roles of Belle and The Beast while 2013 X-Factor winner Sam Bailey will take on the role of Mrs Potts.

Based on the 1991 film – the first animated feature ever nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture – Beauty and the Beast opened on Broadway in April 1994 and garnered nine Tony nominations and one win.

It played for more than 13 years on Broadway, closing in 2007.

It remains to this day – 26 years after it opened – among the top 10 longest running shows in Broadway history.

The live-action retelling of the animated classic quickly became the highest grossing live action film musical of all time in 2017, a record only beaten by The Lion King live-action release in 2019.
