    In June 2013, Sam Hartley and a friend found themselves sitting in a coffee shop in Lincoln, Neb., contemplating a potentially life-changing decision: Should they pack their bags and move to New York to pursue acting careers on Broadway, or should they stay put and opt for a safer route?

    REVIEW: Beauty and the Beast
    I tend to be a sucker for those in need. Especially the sincere-looking folks planted on a street corner with an “Anything you can give – God bless you” sign made from tattered cardboard and most likely, a black Sharpie. But if someone less fortunate showed up on my doorstep asking for shelter, I can’t say that I’d oblige.

    REVIEW: Blumenthal Performing Arts Center presents ‘Beauty and the Beast’
    As a child, we all had that one cousin whose house we loved to visit. They had all the latest games and movies, and the best snacks. That was my cousin Ebony. She had every VHS Disney ever released, vault editions included, all lined on a book shelf in the living room. On days spent at her house, we would take turns picking which movie we were going to watch next.

    ‘Beauty and The Beast’ still casts a spell
    In a world filled with ninnies, a masochist, a fop, morphing humans and a hideous beast, Belle is the voice of reason in the Broadway rendition of Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast.” The touring production is based on the 1992 Disney movie that was the first full-length animated film nominated for an Academy Award for Best Picture.

    Stage version of 'Disney's Beauty and the Beast' has a timeless appeal to audiences
    This was supposed to be the last hurrah for Disney's Beauty and the Beast, for a while, at least. Like Disney has done with so many of its animated movies over the decades, the plan seemed to be to wrap up the current tour, which stops at the Lexington Opera House this weekend for five performances, and take the show off the road for a while. Then, roll it out again in a Broadway revival for a new generation.

A classical musical love story filled with unforgettable characters, beautiful sets and dazzling productions numbers including "Be Our Guest." I spoke with Brooke Quintana, who plays "Belle" in this touring production. There are times when I talk to someone and I'm drawn to his or her kindness. Quintana is one of those people.

    MacLean: Beauty and the Beast is not to be missed

    Cameron Bond is uproarious as Gaston, the boneheaded lout who fancies Belle and he shines in his big number about, well, himself. Lefou (Jake Bridges) is his much abused, punching-bag sidekick and an agile physical comic. Above all reigns Lumiere (Patrick Pevehouse), who sings in a French accent as thick as bouillabaisse and makes a most debonaire candelabra, particularly when he invites us to "Be Our Guest." The show is a hugely appealing mix of the best of the movie and the best of Broadway. It's superlative family entertainment.
