The kid-friendly 30-minute show is advertised as “Broadway-style,” but it’s really not. It’s theme park–style, simplified with the most popular songs from the movie. The story is highly condensed (you never find out why Belle is at the Beast’s castle and Gaston’s fate isn’t shown), and many characters inhabit whole-body costumes, speaking recorded dialogue with unblinking eyes. To accommodate timid kids, the Beast looks more like a plush toy than a scary monster. The metal benches are numbing, but at least the amphitheater is covered. Strategy: Arrive 20 minutes early so you don’t end up in the back where afternoon sun can seep in.
