Disney is all set to recreate the magic of broadway in India for the first time ever and we had the opportunity to check out the launch! Disney’s musical extravaganza is all set to debut in India in October 2015 and here are five things you need to know about the upcoming musical:
Beauty and the Beast is truly a timeless classic which will now be brought to stage in the form of a musical. As Sidharth Roy Kapoor stated,
‘It is a story which has resonated with millions of fans across the world and we are sure it will do the same in India’.
The script is original and so is all the memorable music!
After countless auditions across five cities, Disney has selected the very best local talent we have, who will all work closely with internationally renowned artists.
The production will be in English at 130 minutes in duration, with select shows across Mumbai AND Delhi from October to December!
Some of the eminent artists who are involved in the musical include Vikranth Pawar (Show Director & Creative Head, Live Entertainment at Disney India), Lesle Lewis (Music Direction), Terence Lewis (Choreography), Varsha Jain (Set Design), Gavin Miguel (Costume Design), Pallavi Devika (Hair & Make-up) and Suzanne D’Mello (Vocal Training).
Currently, there are four productions of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast playing around the world including Moscow and tours in North America, Japan and Germany. Now India gets added to the list!
