Beauty and the Beast is one of the Disney classics that works just as well -- maybe better -- onstage. Unlike the abstract Lion King, Beauty’s stage transformation sticks pretty close to the movie’s narrative. The Beck Center’s production of the award-winning musical makes a perfect holiday treat for families. The colorful costumes, lavish sets, and zippy score are so fab, it’s easy to forget that the play’s protagonist is a kidnapping monster who enslaves talking dishware. And the “Be Our Guest” centerpiece stands as one of modern theater’s truly great numbers.
