The stage production of Disney’s "Beauty and the Beast" will be at Heinz Hall April 3-8, 2012, as a presentation of The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, Pittsburgh Symphony and Broadway Across America.
The musical takes it's cue from the animated film’s Academy Award-winning team of Alan Menken and the late Howard Ashman, with additional music by Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice; the book is by Linda Woolverton. Creators of the original Broadway production are together again for this new touring production, directed by Rob Roth and choreographed by Matt West, with costume design by Tony winner Ann Hould-Ward.
“We have remained very close as a team over the years of producing the show around the world, and it has been so much fun getting together to re-explore and re-invent the
show for this new NETworks tour," Roth said in the press release announcing the show.
