Grand Canal Square, Docklands, Dublin
The Most Enchanted Musical of all Time
Disney’s beloved Olivier Award-winning stage musical comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre as part of a UK and Ireland Tour.
Spectacularly re-imagined and re-designed in a completely new production staged by the original award-winning creative team, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will play at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre from 24 November 2022 – 8 January 2023.
This beloved ‘tale as old as time’ will be brought to life on stage like never before, with members of the original creative team reuniting on this new production that features all of the spellbinding music and lyrics of Alan Menken, Howard Ashman and Tim Rice.
Based on the 1991 film – the first animated feature ever nominated for an Oscar for Best Picture – BEAUTY AND THE BEAST first opened on Broadway in April 1994 and garnered nine Tony nominations and one win. It played for more than 13 years on Broadway, closing in 2007. It remains to this day among the top 10 longest running shows in Broadway history. The live-action retelling of the animated classic quickly became the highest grossing live action film musical of all time in 2017, a record only beaten by The Lion King live-action release in 2019.
Casting for the production will be announced at a later date.
Beauty and the Beast is recommended for a general audience. We recommend the production for ages 6 and up. Children under the age of 3 will not be admitted into the theatre.
