⭐ RUMOUR – DISNEY’S BEAUTY AND THE BEAST WEST END PLANS FOR 2022 ⭐
The recently announced UK & Ireland tour of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will reportedly to transfer to the West End in 2022, it has been rumoured.
Daily Mail’s Baz Bamigboye stated in his announcement of the tour that “Once the tour is done, there are unconfirmed whispers about the West End sometime in 2022”.
The tour will start from May 2021, beginning with a 5-week run at the Curve Leicester.
Producers Disney Theatrical have confirmed the original Broadway creative team is set to return, led by director Robert Jesse Roth and choreographer Matt West, bringing new designs and choreography to the tale as old as time.
Beauty and the Beast is a musical with music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice, and book by Linda Woolverton. Adapted from Walt Disney Pictures’ Academy Award-winning 1991 animated musical film of the same name.
That would tally with the original rumours of the new production coming to London. I wonder if it would replace Mary Poppins at the Prince Edward theatre?
Fingers crossed it happens! ! !
