Complete with story development, character creation, conceptual art, and photographs of the Broadway production, Beauty and the Beast: A Celebration of the Broadway Musical goes behind the scenes and behind the magic of this spectacular show. The special effects in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway were created by two of the best illusionists in the business - Jim Steinmeyer and John Gaughan, who have worked with magicians David Copperfield and Doug Henning. The secrets behind this painstaking production are revealed in vivid detail - from how the enchantress slowly transforms the servants into objects to how the Beast flies through the air and transforms into a prince.
Donald Frantz, associate producer of Beauty and the Beast on Broadway, provides an intimate account of this elaborate production. The complete song lyrics written by Howard Ashman and Tim Rice are also included. Covering all elements of production, including set design, costume design, makeup, music, casting, lighting, and more, this lavish, beautifully designed book will delight all those entranced by the musical.
