Be Our Guest
Oh musicals. You either love them, or hate them. Personally, I love them. I applaud those who have the talent to sing, dance, and the appreciation doesn’t even stop there. The amount of work that goes in for the writing and score? Oh and the sets. They usually are so fantastic.
So, that being said, I had the pleasure of watching Disney’s live-action rendition of Beauty & The Beast. It was absolutely charming. The casting is fantastic, and Emma Watson does a lovely job as Belle.
The Beast finally gets his own song! “Evermore,” performed by Josh Groban, (Dan Stevens in the movie) is lyrically beautiful. We finally see the change in the Beast. I’ll sure be listening to this on the daily!
Those who are up in arms over LeFou’s homosexuality are just pesky mosquitoes distracting from the huge milestone for Disney. Instead of another sensitized Disney movie in fear of “offending” anyone, they have their first openly-gay character. Really, for anyone who is offended, they should recheck their priorities.
If you have been toying with the idea of seeing Beauty & The Beast, I recommend you choose on going. If children are keeping you away from the theatre experience, I suggest paying a bit extra and treatyoself to a VIP Experience. 19+ and buy a pitcher? Need I say more?
